Pros

The people working on the production floor are great and very hard workers. The people on the floor know that needs to be done. The plant has 3 unions so the pay is good.

Cons

Keeps cutting staff to make good numbers. More than half of the equipment is old and they keep putting money in to them when they should replace them. Some of the equipment is 20 or more years old and Mauser GMBH makes their own line of new equipment.

Advice to Management

Stop trying to make the plant run like GM and just make a good product. Upgrade your equipment and stop putting money in to very old equipment. The people that investers that own Mauser should take a very hard look at how their money is wasted.

    Pros

    Pays usually above average
    Top performance is rewarded appropriately

    Cons

    Only emphasis is on short term financial results. Management can be very weak. HRs fonction does very little. Work atmosphere is terrible.
    The group management is of german culture with a general bias towards some other nationalities.

    Advice to Management

    Build a group culture, common values
    Build a real HR fonction
    Learn about cultural differences to succeed everywhere
    Stop measuring everything through monthly ebitda, focus on strategy and its execution
    Stop treating every employee like a walking cost center. Ne Human.
