    Pros

    Many of the positions pay well, and the older/experienced employees are very knowledgeable.

    Cons

    Toxic work culture. Management does not care for the employees, and the employees do not care for management. It is nearly impossible to get people from multiple departments to work together or to show any sense of teamwork. Standardized tier boards are not correctly standardized. Workflow specialists are in charge of Tier 1 boards, but they are consistently scrutinized by multiple administrators who request differing information and/or organization of the boards. Allocation of "planned" material is changed on a daily bases--meaning that parts that have been set aside for specific jobs will almost always go to other jobs, after a customer complains about not receiving a specified unit on schedule. This leads to planning of parts constantly not mattering. The blue collar workers know that what they will work on will not be what was planned and that management will complain about them not finishing the units they were originally scheduled to work on. Also, HOS (Honeywell Operation System) management does not allow parts to be in the department if they are not currently being used. This leads to jobs that are set up for work the next day, missing when employees come in in the morning and the parts often being lost or allocated to other departments/jobs. Also, new employees are not properly trained on the SAP system, and specific types of jobs, GAMS, PROs, and others, require specific areas of SAP that even experienced employees have not been trained on. Furthermore, all benefits are reducing in quality on an annual bases, while the older employees are being forced out of the company in order to bring in lower paid and contract employees, whom the company does not care about either.

    Advice to Management

    Allow some extra parts to be held in the basement / warehouse in order to have the material that is needed to meet your schedules--parts are constantly held at the supplier or go to the shop damaged. This needs to be expected, to a degree, and accounted for. Have a replacement lot for the most often used material. As parts come out, replace them and have a standardized amount in the bin. I don't know what to do about the lack of teamwork between departments or the disassociation that seems to exist between management and employee or between the older and younger employees. Time needs to be set aside for formal SAP training for all new employees and for retraining/additional training for non-typically used areas of SAP & SAP books need to be kept at each workstation for quick reference on typical and non-typical standard work.

    Pros

    Great place to learn, get involved, have fun with many different people, types of products, factory locations around the world.

    Cons

    Over past few yearsOutsourcing of U.S. jobs has been rampant. Highly qualified excellent performing people let go and jobs moved to low cost countries at low cost salaries and output levels. No future professional career paths for U.S. employees.

    Advice to Management

    If you want to grow your business in developed countries you need to treat your employees in those countries with more respect and pay for the hard dedicated workers that they are in support of outstanding business practices and existing and new products.
