Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Lisle, IL

I have been working at Navistar full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

Opportunities to develop and learn. Not a cut throat environment. Well established company that has quality products developed by quality people. New board and top executives appear to have plans to upright the issues plagued by former CEO.

Cons

Former CEO! Strategic plans lacking ability to drive throughout organization. Human resources week and uninvolved.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Define a clear strategy that each department can be fiscally responsbile for achieving. SMART goals are the talk, but measurability must reign throughout and be held personally liable to. Imagine the company more than likely wouldn't be in this position if prior leadership truly defined SMART goals that were corporate wide, measured and action taken to achieve the goals.

    Pros

    Good people, what is left on the payroll
    100+ year old company, used to have good products

    Cons

    Upper management is horrible, do more with less. Engineers are using system that are so outdated, they can't be fixed. Management doesn't care, good ole boy program.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice
