Pros

The pay is good and there is plenty of overtime. You can work as many hours as you want as long as you work at least 58 a week.

Cons

There is mandatory overtime and you are forced to work at least six days a week. Five days a week you have to work 10 1/2 hours and on the sixth day you can usually work 8. Also, we are always out of parts and constantly changing the production schedule. If you care about the company, you will be frustrated.

Advice to Management

Please invest in the QAD system and get control of your inventory. Also, get rid of the consultants who are milking the system.

    Pros

    Company is willing to let people do what they do best. Moving within and up in the company is encouraged. Communication throughout the company is outstanding,

    Cons

    Some areas can seem to be a little behind at times and it can be very difficult for people from the outside to get in. This creates opportunity for those that want to work hard and make things better.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great communication and commitment to the company.

  2. Decent but no growth in certain segments

    Pros

    Floor level are not politically charged. Some People are friendly and helpful. Some are just looking after themselves. If you don't mind doing what you're told to do, this is the place.

    Cons

    Micro managing, indecisive on directions. Told one thing and yet changed after the work is done. Even if foreseen issues was brought upfront, no action is taken until it really smacks them in the face. No compensation should you better yourself by taking extra qualifications because the job doesn't need it and there's no advancement either in certain dept.

    Advice to Management

    Do look out for your employees in other regions aside from the COEs. They do deserve your attention as well. It runs like an SME rather than a true global company. Sometimes your best people is right at the bottom who sees the oncoming storm but inputs are filtered by mid management.
