    Pros

    Indianapolis office is located in the heart of downtown. Open seating allows for quick meetings with colleagues and a chance to hide when approaching deadlines

    Cons

    Loss of vacation & holidays, loss of free coffee, no paid overtime but required to work more than 40 hours / week, forced out-sourcing for engineering

    Advice to Management

    This a British owned company with an office in Indianapolis. Treat it as such. The days of GM are gone forever.

    Pros

    Very friendly environment, they train you in the things you'll be doing and some more. You'll walk out with a smile and more knowledge.

    Cons

    The salary can be a bit better for the full time positions (from what I saw) and they should give a bit more room for moving around in the facility

    Advice to Management

    Keep what you are doing, motivate your engineers, increase your worker's benefits and create a better hiring procedure. The current one is not that good.

    Pros

    Great people to work with and all have positive mindsets towards their job and overall goals for the company.

    Cons

    Indecisiveness by executive management. No bonuses given to employees for several years who have made great strides in cost reduction.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to believe in your people. Support them with dealing with internal and external quality management problems. Develop internal quality controls and procedures that prevent overloading of work for various groups that have to deal with supplier performance.

    Pros

    Looks good on a resume.

    Cons

    Indianapolis office is run like a high school,if you are not a member of the in crowd your chances for a raise or promotion are almost zero. Terrible work life balance, favored employees are given extra days off and reduced workload. In 2014 the salaried workforce took a pay cut by loosing 3 company holidays and in 2015 the salaried employees took another pay cut by seeing a large increase in health care costs and the introduction of "total time" also known as mandatory (unpaid overtime) of 9%.

    Advice to Management

    Indy Ofc: Grow up. Treat your employees with respect. Derby Ofc: Wake up. Do you really not care how your US employees are treated.
