    Pros

    Cool products and a decent place to get experience - and get out!

    Cons

    Work environment, culture, and compensation

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Wake up! It isn't 1985 anymore. Company policies need to be updated so employees will want to hang around. Here's a thought - just for once, do something that shows you care about the employees instead of making them take two weeks off so you can achieve "record profits." It's time for "Mr. Chairman" to stop the bleeding and attempt to compete with the employment competition.

    Pros

    Nice area to live in.

    Cons

    Testing only environment working for a bankrupt level supplier. Technically isolated and Mgmt. is unwilling to provide technical training off-site for employees to keep up with the rest of the world. All jobs are falsely advertised as calibration jobs and they are only testing positions. Beware all experienced calibrators, there are no calibration positions in this company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start hiring people with actual engine manufacturing experience. Purge all the "raised in the area" non engineers with real ABET school certified engineers. Real engineers only get deer in the headlights responses when speaking to the falsely titled engineers at the technical center.
