    Company is set in "Old School" business practices.

    I have been working at Luvata full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Most of the people have their heart in the right place and care for others. Products are competitive with the market.

    Cons

    Management culture resists change - senior management just in it for the equity payoff - no real long term vision.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look at current business practices in the marketplace and try to implement positive change. Don't just pay lip service to the "change programme du jour" - letting the locals revert to their old business modes.

    I worked at Luvata full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Some very good people. Decent work life balance and compensation.

    Cons

    Severely under-staffed. Workers and low/mid management need to do several jobs just so the company gets by. However, this does not apply to upper management as they like to lead from their offices, and rarely go out on the floor. Non-existent career growth opportunities. They love to beat-on suppliers rather than get to the root cause of the non-conformance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    A start would be to lead from ahead rather than leading from behind.

    Pros

    There are some good and sincere people among the hourly workforce. They work hard to achieve results. Many paid holidays and good amount of vacation time.

    Cons

    Poor communication between departments, between management and employees. Hugh gap between management and lower level employees. Poor leadership and trustworthiness.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communication and integrity when dealing with your employees. Most people in the plant rated management as only concerned with making their own big bonuses at any cost to the workforce. Managers keep getting more and hourly workers and lower level salary getting less.

    I worked at Luvata full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great employees that can get things accomplished. A lot of experience at the Production level up to management.

    Cons

    VP, Directors and managers have no clue about what is really going on in their managed area but will gladly take all credit when something great happens. Managers and directors just keep patting each other on the back and getting more raises and promotions....REALLY!!!! They make a lot of promises to get you to move there come to work for them but once you move there, they seem to have memory loss.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Quit trying to impress the owners in a foreign country with accomplishments that you did not and can not do. Try Using US, WE, or TEAM instead of "I". There is not an I in any of those words...look it up. You don't have to prove you are a boss, just be one!

    I have been working at Luvata full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Talented, loyal, hard-working employees. Fairly comfortable work environment.

    Cons

    Managers show little to no respect for the employees. They promise you more pay and possiblility of advancement to get you in the door. They rarely follow through with either.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    * Stop making decisions that result in more work and less productivity.
    * LISTEN to your emloyees and empower them! A little respect goes a long way.
    * Get away from the mentality that your employees won't go elsewhere because of the lack of jobs here. Treat them fairly and they will stay even if they have the opportunity to leave.
    * Lastly, take a few courses in Business Ethics...your customers are the ones paying your inflated salary.

    Pros

    You certainly will not be overworked at Luvata (even though you end up doing other peoples jobs for them because they are not competent enough to do it themselves).

    Cons

    BORING..........simple product made difficult due to hiring former automotive industry employee's.
