Pros

The new campus is a great way to network with colleagues and learn more about the business units. There are several opportunities available to hear senior leadership present and explain issues with the business. Great opportunities to learn about global expansion since the company is so new to it.

Cons

Politics X 10. Individuals are promoted to manager with no management expertise. Such promotions lead to micromanaging and high attrition rates.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Take a deep look at those in your organization and make the "cut" if they are not performing. Keeping someone around who does not bring value to the organization reduces confidence in your position. No one likes to be the "bad" guy, but rewarding those for the wrong reasons hurts everyone involved.

    Pros

    Generally good and bright people. Great product lines except for new engines. Terrific new world headquarters campus.

    Cons

    Senior leadership tends to view employment at Navistar as a caste system. Bright people in mid-management are neutered by top executives. Bonuses are non-uniformally applied and unfairly reallocated from mid-level management to upper management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Company success should be placed ahead of ego. Employees need to be treated with more respect and fairness (compensation).
