Unorganized Chaos

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Charlotte, NC

I have been working at SPX

ProsIn terms of compensation, SPX pays well, and the benefits are good. The company does business in a number of diverse areas which helps balance out things during unstable times.

ConsManagement tends to be insular, close-minded and resort to old school ways of doing things. There's a strong old boys network at work. They are clueless when it comes to the importance of marketing, social media, diversity and other disciplines that are essential in working in a global market place. This doesn't bode well for a long-term future for the company.

Advice to Senior ManagementGet out of the box. Bring in fresh blood -- particularly in the areas of investor relations and public relations.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
