    I have been working at Marquardt Switches full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Great people, team environment, growing company, pay and benefits are good.

    Cons

    Cazenovia NY is the middle of nowhere, not much in the area. Most people live in Syracuse or some other town and commute to work 30 to 45 minutes. Shopping, sports, restaurants and bars, and most everything else to do for fun is in Syracuse.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep investing in us, we'll make it pay off.

    I have been working at Marquardt Switches full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    The Pay is sufficient for the most part.

    Cons

    Employee Functions, Roles, and Responsibilities are not well defined at all, the end result is that there are many gaps that lead to many problems. Leadership is weak, unable to organize themselves, their employees, or the company in an intelligent manner. Management is reactive not proactive, and takes shortcuts that payoff badly. When important issues are escalated to management they are often ignored until they develop into an emergency. When skilled, professional employees offer solutions to resolve systemic problems they are ignored. Turnover is high - constant. The work environment is confused, hectic, and often frustrating. I would not recommend this company as a good place to work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get yourselves under control. Listen to your employees we are trying to help you. Stop thinking that it is better to hide problems than it is to resolve them.

    Pros

    As part of auto industry supply chain , work offers new product challenge

    Cons

    Leadership is not believable or the least bit honest.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn to listen and to treat employees with some level of professionalism and respect. I do not think the term Empowered Workforce is part of your companies vision.

    Salary below average, after 1 year you get stuck doing the same thing over and over without any new chalanges. Main focus is on production, R&D come on second place.

    Hire a more capable HR head to develop good work environment for the engineers and others as well.
