    Pros

    Great benefits, and good pay.

    Cons

    Sexual harassment, and they talk about being safe and practicing safety, but none of their equipment is safe.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees and report their issues to upper management. Set forth a sexual harassment class for all employees.

    Pros

    There are some very nice people to work with. That's about it.

    Cons

    Lack of standard operation procedures. The culture of the company is to react to problems instead of fixing the root causes. Nobody wants to stir up the soup and make valuable changes because Management only care about pleasing Japan parent company. Pay is below average, so so benefit and declining. Overall, if you are looking for a job that makes you feel valuable and achievable, this is not the place.

    Advice to Management

    Need to change the company culture. Need to set up standard processes at all departments.

    Pros

    I thoroughly enjoy a handful of people in my dept.

    Cons

    lack of leadership. we put up new mottos on banners in hopes that it will "fix" the company. I've never worked with so many incompetent coworkers prior to this. the intelligent personnel are punished in that they are given all the responsibility without adequate pay. additionally, employees pay for their own coffee....one small perk goes a long way.

    Advice to Management

    where do I start?

  6. Good company with a good product a distribution channels but somewhat stagnant work environment.

    Pros

    Great products, great distribution network, and great parent company support helps to keep this company viable and relatively strong over medium term.

    Cons

    Not much outside of the box thinking, mature product that requires more supply chain innovation and value added. Low priced competition makes maintenance of margins difficult.

    Advice to Management

    Approach to market channels and regions should be diversified and broadened. Offer lower-end, more affordable models, address inexpensive Chinese brands or differentiate more from them.

  7. Good experience building stop on a career path.

    Pros

    Stable company with reasonable job security.

    Cons

    Low salaries, so-so benefits, revolving door CEO position with parent company.

    Advice to Management

    Try to promote for merit not just because a position opened from someone leaving. Get healthcare costs under control.

    Pros

    Salaries are competitive and they have attracted an excellent team at all levels of the company. Their support of the local charities and the Houston Rodeo continue to prove their investment in the Houston community.

    Cons

    Industry is shrinking and it is not clear if MCF will be able to migrate business successfully into the electric market. The global MCF companies vision do not always match MCFA's vision making it more difficult to get things done.

    Advice to Management

    Do dealers and customers still know you as a company who is easy to do business with?

    Pros

    Great people culture with many talented and caring associates.

    Cons

    Suffers from an identity crisis with its brands and its dealer channel partners.

    Advice to Management

    Challeneg yourselves with the roles the brands have to play in the market and dump brands that don't have a clear role.

    If you don't pay competitively, you are not going to get the best employees. This is reflected in the talent level of employees.
