    I have been working at Manitowoc Crane Group full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Good upper level management that is interested in their employees. Pays for training and helps employees with college.

    Cons

    Layoffs are common and job security can be shaky especially as a contractor. Employees at the assembly and manufacturing level feel neglected by management with regard to compensation and they feel disposable.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest in making work for employees during low sales times instead of laying off large portions of the company.

  3.  

    Try to employ people "at a value" for as long as possible.

    Pros

    Top pay is decent compared similar careers in the area. A pay matrix determines your value to the company so pay increases for under-achieving employees is guaranteed. The union representatives will do everything within their power to help you keep your job, even if you don't deserve it.

    Cons

    Supervisors take credit for the good ideas of the production employees. Any suggestions are "taken into consideration", ignored for 2 or 3 months, then magically appear when management just happens to stumble upon the novel idea you gave them earlier. Of course, they conveniently don't remember you ever mentioning it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give credit where credit is due and give positive feedback to quality employees.

    Pros

    Global company with many local opportunities. Leading products in a competitive industry. Large ticket items with high quality provides great sense of satisfaction.

    Cons

    The global business requires many times to have virtual teams and meetings at odd hours when not working in the US or Europe. Constant pressure from competitors drives the business. Generally a cyclical business that is not everyones cup of tea.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue on with the focus in the emerging markets with high quality products at reasonable pricings, and with support that will win over the customers it the long run.

    Pros

    Other employees willing to help a new hire get his/her feet on the ground.

    Cons

    Be wary of internal, personal agendas that stand in the way of success.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    True business agenda differs from the agenda espoused to employees. Goals for employees are blocked by the goals of this hidden agenda.

    Pros

    Compensation is ok when things are good. Floor level people are easy to work with.

    Cons

    Management is poor, and communication is bad.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start holding mid level managers accountable for errors in processing, engineering, purchasing, etc.
