    Pros

    I had a good manager. The salary was enough to live on. They are up front when communicating business issues to employees,

    Cons

    None really. I think if they get past the current set of business circumstances, they will get to a very good place, and will be well positioned for the future.

    Advice to Management

    Look as carefully as possible at future acquisitions.

    Pros

    The senior leadership team is focused on a core set of customer success factors (cost and quality) to keep market position while also trying to differentiate their product's perceived performance to gain market position. One of company values is to "start with a blank sheet of paper and come up with the right solution" and do not be constrained by the ways of the past. Seems to be a good approach to starting an innovation culture.

    Cons

    Lack of defined roles and sometime vague understanding of what functions are responsible for challenging tasks. Company was grappling with evolving from a regional company to a global company and the subsequent impact to work life balance for global roles.............especially, for the people who did not initially commit to this type of challenge.

    Advice to Management

    Market test and implement best practices in people retention approach now that the supply for talented people has signficantly changed since the company started in 2008.............

    Pros

    Like most companies the best part was the people. Everyone was supportive and willing to take the time to help new employees learn. Little room for advancement however you do get opportunities to work on assignments outside of your normal responsibilities, which can be a positive and a negative. Flexible working hours.

    Cons

    Little room for promotions, compensation is not great. Management tends to avoid the large issues in the room and skirt around giving actual, concrete answers to financial problems and employee turnover. Changes seem to be happening but it comes too little too late.

    Advice to Management

    Acknowledge the issues and provide solutions and plans to solve them. Be aware the market is doing great right now, Inteva needs to provide incentive to their current employees to slow turnover. When the company isn't doing great, people are willing to leave for a more comfortable opportunity somewhere else.

    Pros

    Steady paycheck , Able to get overtime , some paid holidays , not a lot of new technology to learn , 401k company match to certain amount

    Cons

    Due to lower pay than surrounding plants the worker quality isn't that great, even with a UAW contact company was able to cut pay by 1/3 and take vacations and other benefits that was supposed to last through 2014. Not getting contracts that we have always had in the past.

    Pros

    Flat organization structure. Potential upside if managed better. Respectable technology and capable engineers respected with customers.

    Cons

    Big company silos, fighting between functional groups. Financial systems are not adequate, program management function is non-existent. Senior management are former GM 'Delphi" behaving and managing same old way.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in program management function and hold operations accountable for performance.
