    Pros

    Fortune 500 company but with many business segments; investment in some segments is badly needed and SPX could easily be part of a personal law suit if it continues to operate without direction from the corporate office

    Cons

    As a fortune 500 company it has many business segments; investment in some segments is badly needed and SPX could easily be part of a personal law suit if it continues to operate without direction from the corporate office

    Advice to Management

    Beware of high turn-over in certain business segments


  2. When I worked there is was a lot of fun. Great management team with clear sense of direction.

    The culture is very shut down. Very little social interaction among an older generation. No innovation or continuous improvement pushed at operational level. constant change that does not improve company

    Pros

    Good 401k plan. Nice coworkers.

    Cons

    At Tulsa the pay is low and people are constantly getting fired. Those that are still there are looking for another job where they can feel good about their employer. The president doesn't have a clue how to run a company. There is no opportunity to move up, you might make a lateral move but that is it.

    Advice to Management

    Tulsa is always losing money and if you want to change that, start at the top. Put someone in that knows how to run a company and treat employees with respect.

    Pros

    Reasonable benefits and good people who are willing to work long and hard to get the job done

    Cons

    Reorganize too often and is over matrixed with a lack of executive clarity around corporate enterprise goals.

    Advice to Management

    Less is more. Clearly understand what you want and what it takes to get what you are asking for, commit, then support your resources.
