    Pros

    Ability to grow if you have the right degree or background

    Cons

    Lack of communication to employees. Promotes people without degrees to higher positions, and those with degrees get stuck in a rut.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate to employees, especially long term employees. Find a way to raise the pay of those, who have been in positions for a while, and have done a good job in those positions.

    I have been working at A. O. Smith full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Salary above average....not worth it, money isn't everything. I would take a cut to get out of here.

    Cons

    Incoherent management...several conflicting answers to same questions..."it depends on who you ask" communication is non-existent, silo mentality. Most people treated like cattle. (except the "chosen few" Improvement suggestions/deas summarily discounted

    Advice to Management

    Clean house...middle and upper mgmt needs to be fully re-tooled..complacency and apathy abound. What was good enough then is good enough now
