    Pros

    Leadership, benefits, time-off policies were exceptionally better ten+ years ago.
    Today employees are getting shafted with out pocket expenses.

    Cons

    Work life, balance, office culture are okay, promotions are only given to the employees that are the managers favorites. They do performance reviews without the employee even being there to defend there position. They let you go the whole year without discussing if you are not working at your potential.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work-life balance needs to improve, should allow flex time as flex time is meant to be. Promotions, managers need to perform the PDM through the year, letting employee go all year without any conversation whether they are performing at meeting requirement's or not.

    Pros

    good place to gain experience. Can actually drive vehicles.

    Cons

    Company lacks foresight, creating a lot of the emergencies the inevitably come up. Employees are not a priority. Cost reduction rule the day which eventually cause problems that cost more to fix than the cost reductions. Poor corporate culture. Lack of accountability and integrity.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Spend money up front to save money on the back end. Make employees a priority.

    Pros

    Multi task environment, work on several projects at the same time.
    Benefits have eroded over the last 5 years but similar with other OEM's.
    Satisfactory training options
    Room to grow if you work for the right department / management.

    Cons

    Communication can be very difficult between local and international entities. Needs lots of patience.
    Top-heavy management.
    Work-life balance better suited for singles.

    EMC work it was OK and but different. Too many meetings every day.

    Current Employee - Emc Engineer
    Current Employee - Emc Engineer

    Pros

    Work environment was OK. Equipment was old and software was also old.

    Cons

    Management was complex to understand. Every one looked busy, Flexible working hours was OK

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    New employee were asked to take notes. In my view they should make hand out with operating procedures. Which every one can understand. Training was done with written documents and trainees were asked to take notes.

    Good starting point for a college graduate, got deal on lease vehicles

    Cons

    Long hours, poor work life balance, excessive workload, very limited opportunities for advancement, high turnover, high stress

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire enough people to do the job required, very understaffed. Keep managers in their position for more than 1 year. Many managers have a lot of different experiences but are experts in nothing.
