    I have been working at Motor Coach Industries full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Salary is generally above expectations.

    Cons

    In many areas, they have the wrong people on the bus. In addition, management is more concerned with bottom line and will remove individuals with longevity and institutional knowledge to lighten payroll, and benefits such as vacation.

    They will bestow titles that are undeserved.

    I worked at Motor Coach Industries full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Was the industry leader with large market share.

    Cons

    Went bankrupt and then sold a couple of times. Management changes made, some okay and many not so good. Will probably be sold again soon.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest in a little QC in the product and keep good people.

    Pros

    Very good, hard working people with a can-do attitude at the local levels. Product is of solid quality once the service centers corrected the factory defects they arrive with, prior to delivery to customer. The local teams are a conscientous group that work extremely well together.

    Cons

    Top management from Tom Sorrells on down have little if any, business acumen. Just drove the company into the lower depths of bankruptcy. Hopefully this group of cronies will be left outside looking in when the new group takes over.

    I worked at Motor Coach Industries

    Pros

    The people really do make a difference here. Our team works hard in a challenging environment putting for outstanding effort to complete their projects, service events and New Coach prep, day in and day out.

    Cons

    Executive team either doesn't recognize the value the field provides or is blind to it. This group never sold the value the service team provided

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Go visit the service centers in Dallas, California, New Jersey, Ohio, and Orlando. Listen to what those teams have to say about hyour business. Implement changes to sell the value provided

    I have been working at Motor Coach Industries

    Pros

    It's a job, and coaches are neat.

    Cons

    management competence and professionalism, antiquated approach to running a company
    Even though the company is profitable (except for the Chapter 11 thing) it is bogged down by a poorly run manufacturing facility in Winterpeg, MB. The poorly run comment reflects the fact that the operations would be better positioned in a third world country, and the talent pool tends to be limited due to geography.

    There doesn't appear to be much of a plan except to build coaches, sell them, and then sell parts for the coaches.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    more transparency, shake up upper management with some new blood
