    Pros

    Annual leave can be booked freely. Friendly teams. There are really no more pros other than to fill the twenty word minimum.

    Cons

    Lack of management, work is one dimensional- expect to be doing the same thing for months on end with no real initiative to take on further project work. Lack of goals and objectives set for employees therefore nothing measurable to perform against. Short sighted management who are looking forward to retirement and not developing young talent. Fire fighting ethos is preferred opposed to succession planning. HR and management actively seek to lower terms and conditions even to young graduates entering the business. Excuses such as not enough resource are often used whereas the reality is management are unwilling to hand work to certain people hence individuals become lumbered with one job.

    Advice to Management

    Correct all of the above! Learn from the talent in your teams, instead of "we've always done it this way" attitude

    Pros

    There's a Holiday shutdown between Christmas and New Years, benefits are decent

    Cons

    Working LEAN doesn't mean you work with 2/3s of the staff you need to get the job done - unless the processes in place, which they don't.

    Advice to Management

    Less Talk, more walk.

    Pros

    Great products, good benefits, fair pay

    Cons

    Always in crisis mode. Upper Management does not know what work-life balance means and don't seem to care about employees. Endless overtime, working over holidays, etc. Operations management is a revolving door. QEs, ME's, Buyers, Planners, Warehouse are all overwhelmed.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of dead wood and hire more support people. Get new management at Division Level.

    Pros

    Pay and benefits are good. Some engineers and some managers were very friendly and willing to put in their fair share or more of the workload.

    Cons

    Management could have been improved. Communications with the employees really need to be put in place. It seems as though the company is not interested in new business.

    Advice to Management

    Communication leads to trust. Honesty is always the best policy.
