    I have been working at SPX full-time (More than 3 years)

    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.

    I have been working at SPX full-time

    Pros

    Chance to get your hands on a lot due to the company split. Good group on people to work with. People within the company are friendly and executive management seems to be on the ball. Pretty good benefits. Every Friday is a half day during the summer, leave AT 1230 on the dot. Great resume' builder.

    Cons

    None that I can think of at this point, but then again I have only been here for 2 weeks so I guess I am still in the "honeymoon phase" at this point.

    Advice to Management

    Nothing, keep doing what you are currently doing. Definitely feel that I will leearn a lot in my position and will take a lot of exp. with me when it comes time to look for a new opportunity.
