Happy I made a bundle when the stock went up.

Senior Buyer (Former Employee) Monroe, MI

ProsLearned a lot. Took on a lot of responsibility. First 2 years were fun. Worked with a lot of very talented people-on all levels, in all areas. Got a better job as a result.

ConsNext 3 years were a nightmare. Everyone wanted to be a buyer, engineers, the plants, the salespeople. Vendor payments were delayed to help cash-flow, a practice that has been stopped. They break contracts. Pay was bad, as were the benefits. Plants routinely ran short on inventory and blamed vendor. Managers had no experience managing in most areas. Women were especially treated poorly-no matter their title. To many 'Indians' with little to-no authority, 'Chiefs' didn't like to get hands dirty, and wanted to protect their job. Very political environment. Senior Executive quoted prior to a meeting, "Check your ethics at the door", and another classic, "Sometimes you have to take the low road' In some areas morale was great, in others well pretty bad.

Advice to Senior ManagementConsider training managers. Let some of the old chiefs retire. Promote from within. Executives should go undercover within the company-in any area to see how the work really gets done and dirty some people operate. Treat the women as your would your wife or daughter treated at a job.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
