Pros

Get chance to work for some of the best products in sound industry and some top customers in automotive.

Cons

As it is new in india and continuously growing, the policies are not yet formed properly.
Lack of good technical work. until work starts coming from Indian clients, need to share work with US/Geman counterparts who treat you more like a service provider than a peer.

    Pros

    This all relates to working on the factory floor. The hours are pretty flexible and there is no real panic to get work done. You can (within reason) take your time and get the job done right. The atmosphere is friendly and you can have a laugh with your mates or keep yourself to yourself and get on with your work. There is little supervision.

    Cons

    I have never seen such a badly run Stores in my life. This is a legacy problem created by starting as a small independant company with one set of PN's, being taken over by a huge orginisation and changing PN's, absorbing another company (Studer) changing PN's again and finaly being forced to adopt a worldwide rationalisation of Stores and changing PN's again. Nothing is in the right place in a Stores that is huge in comparison to the size of the operation.

    The push to manufacture in China was another disaster. Parts are bought from China and shipped to the UK, they are then shipped to the chinese manufacturer who assembles the PCB's and ships them back to the UK. Often the PCB's are assembled into products that are then sold to China. Mistakes are made at every step and this combined with a huge and badly run Stores means there are massive delays as people hunt for parts or fix stock errors

    Advice to Management

    Relocate the company and use the opportunity to kill off old products and rationalise stores. Get rid of the dead wood.
