Bureaucracy

Engineer (Former Employee) Waterloo, IA

ProsSome of the nicest, most intelligent, hardest working people I've ever met work here. Customers and dealers are enjoyable to meet and interact with.

ConsThe problem is most of them are within 5 years of retirement. The younger generation of management has a totally different attitude and lack of knowledge. Not many have worked their way up through the ranks.

Advice to Senior ManagementLearn to prioritize. Many processes and procedures are effective. Ineffective processes and procedures are never abandoned or reviewed. There is so much focus on following the process that it doesn't matter whether the desired outcomes are achieved.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
