Things must change, at least in Mexico

  • Comp & Benefits
  • Work/Life Balance
  • Senior Management
  • Career Opportunities
Current Employee - Manager
Current Employee - Manager

Pros

Salaries are above average and benefits are so good, I feel freat with this compensation. But satidfaction is not only money.

Cons

Ledership is old fashioned, not a saving costs culture, bad comunication inside the organization, Mexican Operations are not going well because of leadership.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

To change the way they do management, look outside the company and learn from success stories, For top management it would be useful to come to Mexico and analize the way things are being done regarding leadership, we have managers that do not have essential knowledge of being a good actual manager :(

    Current Employee - Operations in Forney, TX

    Pros

    Fair pay, fair benefits, fairly professional management, stable employment

    Cons

    It's a job. What? You want me to tell you they are horrible task masters that are idiots and what not? Grow up. This place isn't unlike anywhere else. If you suffer an anti-social disorder then of course you will hate it like the 24 other jobs you'll hold throughout life. If you realize it's called "work" because it isn't fun, like anywhere else, you'll do fine with this company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Really? Who actually thinks what you write here is going to make any difference at your workplace. As if the CEO of your company is going to kick open the door to your office and say "I just read some rant on the Internet about our company and I'm going to change everything about how I treat our employees!" Bottom line, these guys do a fair job running things here and unless you are truly self-entitled, you won't have any problems.
