    Good people and lots of knowledge but poor decisions by upper management.

    (Former Employee) Canton, MI

    ProsGood balance of talent in the low and middle ranks, pleasant work environment. Management willing to spend money in growing areas. Excellent middle management with good project vision who are unfortunately held back by superiors. Good professional development opportunities in some departments with encouragement to seek more education and build skills.

    ConsHigh stress short term assignments, lack of long term vision. Too much micromanaging in some key departments. Lack of good cross training in others leading to single skill employees and missuses of resources. Some department require a lot of travel with facilities and customers all over the globe which can be rather stressful.

    Advice to Senior ManagementDevelop a long term plan for the company

    A company with an interesting product, a global footprint but with a very poor leadership

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Canton, MI

    ProsSmart people in some areas. Interesting product. Global footprint.

    ConsVery weak leadership, whose primary goal is to focus on short term decisions. No long term strategic vision. MSC used to praise itself for hiring the best people in the industry. Not any more. Too many C players, who are pushing the A players out of the company.
    People are working in silos with conflicting G&Os. Too many non-global managers.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGet back on the growth track. Get rid of the C players. Reward A players. Move to a "0 defect" operations culture. Stop talking about strategy, execute instead.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
