    Mauser in Conroe specifically the fiber div is packed with unprofessional leadership.

    Pros

    The actual productions workers on the floor are very good hard working people to work with.

    Cons

    The Supervisor and most of the leads are uneducated hillbilly types that can't see past the color of one's skin to see any potential benefit the person may bring. The boss came down from Chicago and I though ok maybe this guy will see the problems try to fix it. Well he is no better than the group of hillbilly leaders he has in place. It's a workmen's comp claim paradise...if you're into that type of thing. I am not.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Advice to Corporate is fire and start over. No way you succeed with the barbarians you have in place in management and leadership at Conroe in the fiber division.

    I worked at Mauser

    Pros

    The people working on the production floor are great and very hard workers. The people on the floor know that needs to be done. The plant has 3 unions so the pay is good.

    Cons

    Keeps cutting staff to make good numbers. More than half of the equipment is old and they keep putting money in to them when they should replace them. Some of the equipment is 20 or more years old and Mauser GMBH makes their own line of new equipment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop trying to make the plant run like GM and just make a good product. Upgrade your equipment and stop putting money in to very old equipment. The people that investers that own Mauser should take a very hard look at how their money is wasted.

    I worked at Mauser

    Pros

    Pays usually above average
    Top performance is rewarded appropriately

    Cons

    Only emphasis is on short term financial results. Management can be very weak. HRs fonction does very little. Work atmosphere is terrible.
    The group management is of german culture with a general bias towards some other nationalities.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Build a group culture, common values
    Build a real HR fonction
    Learn about cultural differences to succeed everywhere
    Stop measuring everything through monthly ebitda, focus on strategy and its execution
    Stop treating every employee like a walking cost center. Ne Human.
