Pros

A new global management team that should be more innovative and forward thinking than the previous team. This company has the right work ethic and has earned an enviable industry reputation for supporting their customers.The company also has a global footprint, but is strongly North America focused as can be seen in the product development cycle.

Cons

I don't believe the company spends enough time innovating and looking for tomorrow's solutions, instead of chasing the next big thing announced by it's core competitors. They need to examine what their core really is and if it still exists, as they interpret it, in the marketplace. Also, the ownership structure of the company makes the firm ineligible for some US domestic RFPs.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Push the envelope, by developing the people you have and attracting the people you need. The old industry that is not the new industry. Your customer has changed, as your customer's customers are beginning what will be a tremendous change. The only things impeding this revolutionary change is regulation and oversight. Be mindful of the political and bureaucratic currents that influence your industry. Being complacent and not anticipating change will leave you flat footed and in the position of chasing your competition once again. Also, loosen your definition of who your competition is. Are the big meter makers/network companies really the competition of the future, or is it that start-up that is trying to kill the meter? Or, does L+G want to be the firm to kill the meter? Just my simple thoughts.

    No satisfaction from work, hoped Toshiba would have fixed. Didn't.

    Pros

    Very little is expected of employees, great place to work if you aspire to mediocrity. Salary is competitive when you subtract the time you are able to wander around, play candy crush or time spent on the can. You also get a truck to run errands with, if you suck up a little. There are few clearly defined duties, so when all else fails you can claim ignorance. Most sites have free coffee. Also a stepping stone to work with Utilities. The mandatory safety training can get you insurance breaks, and first aid qualified.

    Cons

    Management as a whole is untrained and disorganized. Problems are covered up or ignored until they blow up, pertains to personnel, products and services. Little is proactively corrected. Managers focus on their own busywork or pet projects, subordinates seem to be nothing more than an inconvenience. Some managers routinely unaware of direct report employees scheduled activities. There is little incentive to excel, "merit based" bonuses and raises are paid out the same to everyone. During my employment Federal and State labor laws have been broken repeatedly by the Human Resources Department.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Train your leadership. Clearly define roles and responsibilities of every position. Tools and framework to do all of this is in place, just neglected. Given a clearly defined standard, training can be developed and disseminated. EBITDA can be improved with quality performance, not continued budget slashing. Or more realistic, both.

    Pros

    Great executive leadership, really focused on employee growth and meeting our financial targets, customers that like us and are treated well. Benefits and bonuses are great. Company technology is impressive and L+G is the leader in its industry. Toshiba backing has been helpful. Focus on quality processes. Emphasis on industry certifications for employees.

    Cons

    Many parts of the organization do a good job in getting rid of the deadwood. Some employees don't like this, obviously. Other parts of the organization need to do a better job at performance management.
