Pros

Fair salary and bonus opportunity for committed employees. Puts employee safety first in every consideration. Good career opportunities. Moving forward positively after a few years of reorganisation.

Cons

Personal touch being lost as in most multi-nationals. Claim to be global but still very much American in style and in decision making. Need to move faster to mold own identity and culture rather than living of legacy companies.

    Pros

    Many of the remaining people are experienced, hard workers although motivation towards the company as a whole leaves a lot to be desired.

    Cons

    As with many failing companies we are seeing today, there is no thought process into why the people are lacking motivation or people are leaving. It is preferred that we simply allow experienced personnel, who have had trememdous success and given a lot of their lifetime to the company to simply leave and be replaced. loyalty should work both ways but that is something that is not understood by the new management.

    Advice to Management

    Stop thinking you can make the company better simply by hiring these so-called experienced consultants to come in and run the business. You already had the personnel to do this but you did not trust them.

    Bonus is tied to safety...make sense?

    Pros

    Good Pay.

    Shareholders like CEO...good dividends.

    Stock is doing good.

    The business side of it seems to be strong.

    Cons

    Your bonus is tied to safety. This means that is someone gets hurt, your bonus hurts too. People will be less likely to report injuries because of this.

    Experts are leaving the company; very few left.

    Your bonus is multiplied by a multiplier from 1 to 1.5. Your boss determines the multiplier based on your performance in his/her group. The average must be 1.0 for the group, therefore is someone gets a 1.5, another person in the group MUST get .5. Bosses are not allowed to give everyone in the group a 1.0 multiplier; someone MUST get a .5 and someone else must get a 1.5...and .8 .9 in between for a bell curve distribution. This is hard for little groups...

    Training sucks.

    Very few opportunities to grow as a person and engineer.

    Very few women in high positions.

    Not a very diverse company.

    Lack of work/life balance.

    Lack of CEO presence in manufacturing units.

    There is a disconnect between corporate group and manufacturing; for example, the Operation Excellence group are creating requirements that are making life at a plant more difficult....really...we are required to report every single IPL and do an investigation every time one alarms?! That is not process safety..that is administrative hinderance.

    Low morale in smaller plants.

    Hiring lots of new people, but people that have been loyal to the company are getting swept to the side.

    Weak standards.

    Advice to Management

    Please change the bonus structure. It is counterintuitive to link the bonus to safety, unless your intent is to have people NOT report their injuries.
