    Pros

    Good group of folks to work with in my group

    Cons

    It's a big company and it feels like it.

    There is an underlying message from those at the top of "Just do your job and let us worry about running the company"

    There are rumors of a hostile takeover so that makes things feel uncertain

    Advice to Management

    Be more transparent about where you are leading this company. Instead of "not commenting" on rumors, how about at least letting your employees know what is going on?

    Inconsistent pacing- breakneck one day, too slow the next

    Pros

    Good people for co-workers.
    Decent Pay for salaried employees
    Good Mangers that care

    Cons

    Long Hours, mandatory OT every quarter end. March 2015, 30 days without a day off, 12+ hour days
    Never get time off at the holidays, more mandatory overtime or you get written up
    Greedy Upper Management, CEO level, not Plant level
    Continual cutbacks and everyone has to do more even though they already have a full schedule
    Take work home to try to stay caught up
    No raises even though the company is more profitable than ever
    No bonus
    Insurance benefits cut year after year

    Advice to Management

    Treat your people right. Pay them what they are worth. Get the plants the resources they need.

    Pros

    Telecommute and decent PTO. HQ is in a location with a lot of shops and restaurants.

    Cons

    Culture and leadership leaves a lot to be desired. There is no work life balance and the senior leadership expects too much for too little pay. Honestly this is a short stop to spring into something more rewarding. Attrition rate is terrible on my team.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees like humans and not androids that can work 24/7.

    Pros

    Decent salary (see Cons), Great team mates to work with

    Cons

    Benefits, Salary is ok but definitely not competitive, Work-Life balance is non-existent, unrealistic project goals and requirements, no room for growth. Lack of leadership, micro managers at all levels.

    Advice to Management

    You hire people for their expertise and talent, many of them are leaving for jobs at great companies. That should tell you to listen to your team, dont look over their shoulders, worry about where they are every second. In other words dont micro manage your team. Do not give your team a project to build a Maserati but a budget for a Moped.
