    Pros

    Decentralized environment which provides lots of independence and ability to grow. Great leadership programs for first year grads, mid-level management and executive management. Fast paced and aggressive.

    Cons

    Not a lot of processes unless you build the process. This is good if you have self direction and can lead without guidance. Not for everyone.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing. Do not drop the leadership programs, this is a valuable tool and attractive to new talent.

    The people and the team environment make SPX a great place to work.

    Pros

    Very Knowledgeable people, Stable Environment, Management expects you to perform and leaves you to your job.

    Cons

    The vision for the future is short, no one looks past the current quarter its all about meeting corporate's quarterly expectations.

    Shop floor management doesn't do whats the best/most efficient for the company, its whats easiest.

    Advice to Management

    Get real shop floor managers, hold people accountable, Learn how to use your tools (machines and people). Build for the future.
