I have been working at SPX

Pros

In 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.

Cons

Management 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 ManagementAdvice

Get out of the box. Bring in fresh blood -- particularly in the areas of investor relations and public relations.

    The jobs I performed I enjoyed but the poor management was a problem.

    I worked at SPX

    Pros

    The tasks and opportunites that I did receive were great. Generally the coworkers (and some of management) were very helpful and supportive. Safety was becoming a big consideration in decisions.

    Cons

    It was always a fight to expand my own abilities.
    Accountablity was not usually a part of the work envirnoment nor was there a level playing field.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pick a path and stick to it. Do not say you want something then do nothing to support it.
