Pros

Smart people
Good products
Ability to drive change and make improvements
Interesting project work
Performance driven culture
Good pay and benefits

Cons

Minimal recognition given
Company seemed to be going through an identity crisis: Are we a (decentralized) holding company or a (centralized) operating company?
Lots of process inefficiencies and waste
Leadership could be short-sighted at times.

Advice to Management

Think bigger picture. Invest in long-term solutions that yield strong ROI over time, rather than favoring short-term band-aid fixes that have a more immediate impact on bottom line, but aren't fixing the root cause.

    Pros

    Small group, work loads come in waves. Get a chance to mingle and work with the engineers.

    Cons

    Since the recession, they have been doing away with many benefits, but I expect them to bring them back.

    Time wasted. Should have worked elsewhere.

    Pros

    Get out early on Friday

    Cons

    Always on mandatory overtime. Always running out of parts. Unrealistic takt times, Management is a joke. Very political environment. Doesn't value employee feedback. High turnover. Underpaid. They lie about everything.

    Advice to Management

    Do business with vendors in the US. Waiting 2-3 months for parts from Europe is ridiculous. Pay your people. Treat your long time employees as assets.
