Pros

Good pay, good bonus, casual environment.

Cons

Benefits are below par to other companies in similar industry. Benefits are changed at will and often, and there is no such thing is being grandfathered into what was offered when hired.

    • Career Opportunities
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee  in  Livonia, MI
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Livonia, MI

    Pros

    - A lot of product innovation ,market is quickly changing.
    - Friendly atmosphere
    - A lot of freedom to get the job done

    Cons

    - Capital expenditure kept to a minimum. Don't forget, the company is owned by a private equity firm ...
    - Very old infrastructure, limited access to resources, packed offices, everything looks so cheap
    - Benefits way below average, health cost incredibly high to workers.
    - Don't expect the lower management to help you plan your career, they are job is first to reduce the costs.
    - The job is disorganized.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Stand up, "Reducing the costs" cannot be the one and only company driver. Have the courage to say stop: we don't need 4 signatures for any travel approval or for any penny we spent on capital investment! This is a waste of your time and ultimately can cost more to the company.
    - Even for product development, don't try to "reduce the costs" for any single program independently, guys, it is time to look at the global picture, you are upsetting the customers!

    Pros

    Leader in the Braking and OSS technology.

    Middle management basically sucks. Very limited internal recognition and growth. They will try to hire you back after you are dissatisfied and has left the company.
