Executive and senior management performance reviews required

(Current Employee)
Windsor Locks, CT

Pros- Relatively competitive salaries and benefits (not really a 'pro' since life/work balance is a figment of management's imagination)
- Possibility of working with truly talented people (possibility dwindles as the talent pool are hired away to greener pastures and new hires begin to understand how HS really works - see 'cons' below)

Cons- Rampant nepotism among executives and senior management
- There is an element of 'reverse Darwinism' within the organization (incompetent managers survive while the best give up, in frustration, and move on)
- One word: ACE (which, in practice, is more an acronym for: Aggravate Company Employees)

Advice to Senior Management- Show humility; be genuinely concerned about the workforce who make the executive salaries and huge bonuses possible.
- The right way ahead is not just in the data. An informed intuitiveness is also required. Charisma comes in handy.
- Demonstrate true leadership; standing in one place, or stepping back while others take risks, does not cut it.
- The power to inform and persuade win the battles for hearts and minds. Communicate. Motivate.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    I have been working at Hamilton Sundstrand


    Pros: If you need a job they probably will hire you since turnover is such… Cons: Management does perform the duties of management other than hiring and firing; no training, leading, communication; or competent planning; In general dysfunctional leadership. Those… Advice to Senior Management: Take a close look at lower level management. Some are incredibly incompetent, rude, petty tyrants that block progress (micromanage) rather than support and either do… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
