    I worked at Nexans (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    There are many positives at Nexans. In the US, the benefits are excellent. Salary, I think, is average or maybe a bit lower than average. Job security is generally very good. There are many opportunities for training, including a program called Nexans University which provides internal training opportunities. Nexans says they are committed to training and I believe that is true.

    Cons

    Within the LAN division, the management is frighteningly clueless about communication, vision, even common sense decisions. They tend to unwittingly demotivate people by careless comments during meetings. It's too bad because most of the employees are quite dedicated and they are just hungry for someone to actually lead them. In the other divisions, the biggest problem is "old" employees, and I don't just mean age. They are of the mindset that what they have been doing for the past 30 years is fine, and there is no need to change. That is VERY frustrating and will ultimately be their undoing. The aerospace division and the HV division seem on track and to be well organized and positioned to grow.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be open to new ideas...you don't have to adopt every idea, but at least listen. For BerkTek, management (especially the President), what were you thinking in taking the scholarship money for your kid??? Seriously? People making $10 an hour on the shop floor need this money for their kids...the company president making way into the 6 figures doesn't! It is one of the strongest examples of bad judgment I have ever seen and it still makes me furious.
