    Historically a good place to work, but current leadership team under pressure and in a state of disarray.

    I have been working at Waukesha Electric Systems

    Pros

    Nice co-workers in similar tough place to work. Seems like employees are watching management remove what made the company a good place to work. Misery loves company. Company used to be a joy to be a part of; this changed as the economy turned south.

    Cons

    The performance of the company, tough economic environment with increased competition, pending layoffs, no growth opportunities

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communicate with employees to reduce rumor mill, stop sending mix messages, stop placing individuals in important positions that are not qualified to lead. Remember that employees are the most important asset of the company.
