    Old-world bureaucracy can be frustrating but the environment can be challenging

    Pros

    Fast-paced, challenging work environment creates something new every day. The decision to split the company in half is a wise decision that may reinvigorate the LVS business units. The CVS business units face some significant challenges at the corporate level as many lower-level managers tend to operate like the 1980s never ended.

    Overall, however, much decision making is made under the radar at the site level, ignoring irrational directives from inexperienced corporate managers, thereby allowing the company to successfully navigate some challenging economic waters.

    Cons

    Legacy layers of bureaucracy that delay decision making and projects. Also many non-functional managers who have no real-world experience are left in charge of making critical business decisions without consulting operational managers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communicate often and honestly. Get senior managers off their duff and out into the hustings, visting the manufacturing sites. Don't make decisions based on assumptions by non-functional managers.

    Pros

    Company is going through lots of changes, therefore there is a significant amount of opportunity for growth. It is a fair company as well in terms of life/work balance, time is often available for personal use when you have previously taken that time away from your personal life to accomplish something for work. There is a very strong sense of team work, at least within the immediate team. People do bond together and in general care for each other, in tough times this is really good to see.

    Cons

    Often too slow to change, old-economy mentality prevails. There seems to be a lack of long-term concrete plan and a 'stick to the plan' follow-through. Approaches are changed frequently. Decisions are often made at the upper management level without really understanding how they will impact the daily operations. From the IT/IS perspective the picture is NOT so rosy. That function is perceived as a 'cost center' as opposed to a tool that is of strategic advantage, therefore it is relegated to the back-rows of the functions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pick a plan and stick to it, keep the boat going straight.
