ProsDo a poor job and it'll take months to get fired, if it happens at all.

Complacency, laziness and gross incompetence are rewarded.

ConsPoor prospects for advancement within the company.
Departmental managers are often times overwhelmed by their own workload, let alone managing their employees.
Communication is a huge problem with this organization, no one works together as a cohesive unit to accomplish the common goals.
Respect is in short supply.
Rewards including basic compensation and recognition for a job well done are absent.
Assuming multiple positions worth of responsibilities when people are let go is expected; You'd be better off being the one let go than the one who assumes the duties of the person who was just laid off / fired / walked to the door.

Advice to Senior ManagementChallenge your employees and reward them for their performance through a bonus system that is actually achievable.

Train employees and management on technologies that can enhance their level of productivity.

Fire every single person who is involved with acquiring and keeping customers. Ahem... Caterpillar problem.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Unprofessional, with a strong emphasis on favouritism and racism, (Toronto, Canada facility)

    (Current Employee)
    Toronto, ON (Canada)

    I have been working at Viasystems full-time


    Pros: Willing to hire employees without Canadian citizenship. HR department… Cons: Unprofessional - no department meetings, no employee performance review for the past 2 years. Zero management feedback - no encouragement / reward for excellence;… Advice to Senior Management: Short of a complete overhaul...it will be impossible to achieve… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company… More
