Navistar is great for a short-term job, but not a long-term career

Pros

Navistar's overall compensation is fair. The company holidays tend to be slightly more generous than others.

Cons

The cyclical nature of the industry Navistar competes in means poor job stability and many layoffs. This makes it hard to work for the company as a "lifer."

    Pros

    Close to Chicago, pleasant workplace environment with nice amenities, lots of young people are starting to work there, as many of the old timers are beginning to retire.

    Cons

    High difficulty accepting changes to the product, even necessary changes that will help the company. Directors are more concerned with maintaining their bonus than doing what is best for the company. Difficulty communicating between departments to facilitate the few changes that ever get approved.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Embrace changes and don't put barriers in the way. Structure bonuses to encourage directors and managers to work to lower costs company-wide and not just within their bubble. (I.E. reduction in Bill of Material costs tend to be offset by rising warranty by going to cheap, but low quality suppliers)
