I have been working at SPX full-time for more than a year

Pros

Reasonable benefits and good people who are willing to work long and hard to get the job done

Cons

Reorganize too often and is over matrixed with a lack of executive clarity around corporate enterprise goals.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Less is more. Clearly understand what you want and what it takes to get what you are asking for, commit, then support your resources.

    Pros

    Flexible, People are friendly. Opportunties to grow

    Cons

    They manage business with short outlook that only extends to the next quarter. Poor benefits, health insurance is self funded and you pay based on your salary. Bonus is used in the calculation of health insurance premium whether you make the bonus or not but yet all other benefits the bonus is taken out of the calculation. For example on the company paid life insurance. Cheap and skimpy on the bennies.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Manage to the year not the quarter, provide better benefits

    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.
