Pros

Extremely competitive salary, especially for the Indiana area
Nice Technology (iphones, ipads, etc.)
Great Benefits!
'Pockets' of Caring People

Cons

Too Warsaw-centric
Not diverse (ethnic, thought or cultural)
Top-heavy; most leadership invisible to employees in their ivory towers
No real opportunity to influence change
GE is king; don't bring anything other than GE ideas
Not all, but a lot of people in the town and the employees are just plain mean and rude. Period.

Advice to Management

*Get over yourselves. The new guy they brought on board recently to lead US Sales is the prototype. Follow his lead and loosen up.
*Encourage more inclusion amongst employees.
*Stop advertising you are a global employer when you are really just a Warsaw business that does business in other countries. There is a big difference. You are NOT global.
*Diversify your leadership. It's the 'good ol boys club' right now.
*Stop relocating people from outside of Indiana unless you change your infrastructure; it'll continue to be a waste of your time.
*Get new HR leadership (SVP and VP). You're entire HR team will improve if you do; right now, most of them are dead weight and not effective at all.
*Hold people accountable, from the top down.
*Move your headquarters to a larger town. Leave Warsaw, it's killing your business.

    Pros

    Working in the position I did, there was great interest from upper management. We were working in a high-impact environment where one is quick to see results in some cases, but this is not the case from many other people, from what I hear.

    Cons

    Work was disparate and never directed, our direction would change daily according to the whims of management and the distributors.

    Advice to Management

    In many cases, we need clear direction as to what we are aiming towards. Often, we have to bend over backwards to accommodate distributors, yet we push them to do something completely different.

    Pros

    Fun work, a lot of great talented engineers to work with.

    Cons

    Poor upper level management leads to unfunded or understaffed projects with unrealistic timelines.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your people. We all want our company to be successful, but when we talk from the trenches and tell you the issues, you should try to listen and trust in us.
