Pros

Management is trying really hard to change the overall culture. They have moved a lot of people to one central location to improve on communication and cooperation. In addition, they are improving the facilities so that it is a place that people want to be at to take advantage of the many benefits such as a basketball court, putting green, coffee from Starbucks, walk while you work treadmills, new fitness center and much more. It is truly an exciting place to work at as it transforms into a better company.

Cons

As others have mentioned, management needs to improve. The old ways of running the business are evident in the way some managers make decisions. The structure of the organization needs some work. Resources are not allocated properly but changes are being made to improve this.

Advice to Management

Continue to try and improve the culture and the way Navistar does business. Already the change is noticeable and, if it continues, Navistar will be one of the premier places to work within Illinois.

    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 Management

    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.
