Pros

Was able to work on multiple projects in different areas over the course of the internship. Staff was highly supportive and gave opportunities for design reviews. Received very little busy work over.

Cons

For an engineering internship the salary was lower than expected. Additionally could have received a larger amount education regarding the company earlier in the internship.

Advice to Management

Increase internship salary to a more competitive value.

    Pros

    at one time the employer took care of their good workers. not any more

    Cons

    trying to keep the lines working doing my job and other people jobs. some people come to work to play I come here to do a job and I take my work serious.

    Advice to Management

    you come to work to be people supervisor not their friends if you mix the two together on the job it can cause serious problems.

    Pros

    There are some fantastic people with phenomenal ideas working at WNC They are in the enviable position of growing after many, many years of shedding jobs Certain departments have a real "family company" feel to them

    Cons

    The departments are so silo-ed they were working against each other Changes in the departments at HQ happen at a glacial pace When someone points out somewhere that the company is hemorrhaging money, the management is so afraid of change and too afraid to admit the mistake, they sweep it under the rug and stick their heads in the sand and stick to the way "its always been done". The budgets of certain departments are made up instead of basing them on real numbers If someone comes in with ideas or suggestions to make positive changes that have worked in similar companies in a similar industry, they are moved into a menial job off by themselves until they quit. People are fired just for not getting along with their boss, or the yes men who surround them

    Advice to Management

    This is a company that truly needs an overhaul. There are very few people in management that are PRO change. Their Financial Departments appear to be moving forward, and with the new HR Management, they are making big strides with HR, but the IT Department management needs to be wiped out and started fresh from the outside and the Plant Floor management needs to spend some time working in one of the big 5 auto plants to get some hands on experience from people who roll 10 times as many vehicles out the door every day. IT and Plant Floor are overly certain they know what's best and run a "good ol' boys club" where they protect eachother. I saw positive changes with the hiring of new HR and Financial management, but don't stop there. If you want change, you won't be successful with the same management staff in IT and Plant Floor. Oh, and by the way, your Sales Management needs the most work. They need some sort of CRM application for their contacts, and stop holding on to email for 10 years just so they can maintain all of their contact information. If all of your top management have been at the top for more than 5 years, they are dead wood. They need to keep going back to the well of knowledge for training and in service days at other manufacturing companies to keep sharpening the saw. You got a lot of "lame duck politicians" at the top right now punching the clock till retirement. They are wasting your time.
