    Pros

    Very big company. Some possibilities for movement. Somewhat good job security if within the company's core business units.

    Cons

    Very big. Somewhat disjointed. The "matrix management" style of accountability is out of hand. If not part of the core energy business unit, you'll be seated at the kid's table.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on your core. Listen to the experts in the non-core business units, they have value and opportunity as well. If SE could get its business units all aligned, it could be a much more successful company.

    Pros

    No experience needed to handle electronics. Was trained thoroughly.

    Cons

    Pay is low and processes continue to get more strict. They hold on to temp workers way too long.

    Advice to Management

    Providing more freedom along with rational and reasonable bonuses help motivate those on the floor to perform more efficiently and thoroughly. Bonuses once a year, that are not directly related to individual performance, feel disconnected to efforts. Monthly bonuses, scaled accordingly, drove us to better the previous month.
