Pros

Opportunity to use skills or abilities to improve process and company.

Cons

High emotions and changing environment that is trying to improve business profitability and results.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Suggest annual communication training for management. Too many hurt feels by managers and retaliatory actions toward different functional groups. Consider starting project management group and empowering them to bring about change to repair distrust among seperate functional groups.

    Former Employee - Design Engineer in Charlotte, NC

    I worked at Husqvarna full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Exposed to a high volume manufacturing center, fast paced work environment.

    Cons

    Woefully under-qualified management, constant cover ups from Quality/Engineering/Manufacturing leadership for MAJOR functional and safety defects. Commodity Owners protect bad suppliers from losing business, likely because of some side deals and favors. Engineering tech tools are extremely outdated, expected to continue operating factories that pump hundreds of thousands of units on the same systems that were put in place when volume was 10% of what it is now.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of under performing employees, and employees that hold positions they are under-qualified for and it shows. Take a hard look at the engineering management who refuse to follow processes and test procedures to cut corners to better make dead lines. Overhaul your commodity owners and watch them closely with their interactions with suppliers. Reward productive employees who follow rules, don't run them off by refusing to compensate them properly. Put in place a tooling replacement program for when tools reach their expected life. Don't expect tooling to last forever and then wonder why you make lousy parts at 5 times expected tool life.

    Ultimately understand that if you continue to sacrificed product quality for sake of profit margin, the customers will wise up to it. Quality is already worse than competitors, wont take long for consumers to notice either.
