    Pros

    very good people to work with, upper management is on par with middle people. Good pay offer when it comes to bonuses. Like any other industry there are allot of opportunities to evolve and move up on the ladder.

    Cons

    work load , fast paced programs, not a lot of testing time for current product and so stress can be a problem. There is no interest into investing in PLM software and so the releasing process in slow and prone to errors

    Advice to Management

    invest in people and do not let sales guys ruin the product life cycle , engineers are the ones to have the most of the work load

  2. Great place to work awesome people

    Pros

    pay is competitive, good benefits

    Cons

    Regular layoffs, Terrible work environment. Old technology. Stone age IT.This division hasn't won any new contracts in years. They have been eeking by on money made from supporting legacy products. Their last couple of large contracts had breathtaking budget overruns. From reading other posts from employees, PH was a good place to work -20+ years ago. They just never kept up with the times. The building I worked in was a dungeon. Apparently the divisions in California and Ohio are the only ones they really care about.

    Advice to Management

    Making constant organizational changes gives the appearance you are throwing stuff against the wall. Did I say appearance? Once you make the coffee free that's code for "start shopping your resume"

  6. It is a good company with lots of opportunity if you can move around the country.

    Pros

    If you are mobile you can advance to any Group or Division in the company.

    Cons

    If you are not able to move then you are likely unable to advance unless you are in Ohio or California.

    Advice to Management

    Develop employees.

    Pros

    Great name to have on a resume.

    Cons

    Withering division location. Moving work to Mexico has devastated the company and all that can get out are long gone. I view the MSD Division as a clown car of misfits using every lean tool known to man the wrong way and the effects are quite dramatic. There are only 2-3 key people left and they are only here to add to their seniority and load up the bank. I expect this division to continue it's long, painful and slow spiral into irrelevance until the division is sold, closed or rolled into a healthy Parker division. It's a sad assessment, but the way I see it.

    Advice to Management

    Now that Washcowiscz is gone enough of the metrics boards and phony lean already.

    Pros

    Ok for a big compan. Competitive pay and good benefits. Payed for my MBA. I especially like the healthy lifestyles reembursement and CAM (things like massages, acupuncture and wholistic medicine is covered).

    Cons

    under staffed & concerns over future business outlook. Senior management needs to re-evaluate existing contracts & future contracts. Supply chain needs more workers to manage suppliers.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more people and revise existing contracts. Staff for future success instead of failure.
