    I have been working at AmerCable full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    There are no pros working here anymore. The company has changed for the worse. Performance based raises are just an excuse to screw you out of your cost of living adjustment. How can it be performance based, yet have no quarterly performance reviews? The answer is, they are going to review you based on how well they like you. Simple as that.

    Cons

    The previous review pretty much sums up the entire business. If you notice, it had grammatical errors, punctuation errors, and looks as though a grade school student wrote it. Yet, they are an executive account manager. Hmm. The hiring process is laughable. Go to church? You have a job. In the military? Have a job. Go to church and have been in the military? Management for you! It is not about how qualified you are at Amercable, its about how agreeable you are. They want people that won't question their idiotic decisions within the plant. They don't want individuals that will ask the right questions, step on some toes, but ultimately improve operations. Horrible job by both former Amercable Managers as well as the new Nexans decision makers.

    Advice to Management

    Pack your bags and leave. You are driving a once great company directly into the ground.

    Pros

    The majob pros of working for Amercable were the dynamics of the staff. We expereinced a great team environment and great leadership.

    Cons

    They sold to another company, so the culture changed, but before there were no cons.

    Advice to Management

    I am not sure of the new management.

    Pros

    Pretty much 8 to 5.

    Cons

    Management sucks. Executive staff sucks. No respect toward employees. The company in having financial troubles at the moment and is having to lay off some people as a result. This is understandable. However, the way that employees are treated during the process is crappy. First, they have a company wide drug test, which means that a layoff is coming. Second, they give everyone the option of volunteering for a layoff with the volunteers receiving 1 week of pay for every year worked. Third, they start involuntary layoffs if they don't get enough voluntary people. Every employee lives in fear of losing their job. Terrible, terrible, terrible place to work!!!

    Advice to Management

    1. Show the lower employees a lot more respect and they just might start to trust you again. After all, they are the ones making money for the company. 2. You might have tried suspending profit sharing instead of laying people off

    Pros

    Profit sharing and good insurance

    Cons

    Not much advancement potential. If you don't work in the right unit, you don't don't get as much compensation.

    Advice to Management

    Stop hiring people that aren't needed

    Pros

    It's a family atmosphere. Not very restricted. The attitude is "Do what you have to do to get the job done". There is always someone who can and will help you when you need it. They can be generous with raises when the time is right. Not what I would call a dead end job. There is always some way that you are able to advance. It is also a growing company. In the last few years they have opened several world wide offices. Some of those are sales offices, but some are also warehouses to ship product. So all in all, a good place to be.

    Cons

    Don't know of any yet...

    Advice to Management

    Keep people informed of what's going on with the company

    Pros

    Great People. The production employees at Amercable are amongst the friendliest you'll ever come across. Helpful and pleasant to be around. The pay is competitive and the benefits are great. Help can always be found when needed and the production team works as a cohesive unit to finish tasks assigned throughout the week.

    Cons

    Management within the facility is poor. It is not uncommon to go weeks without seeing your department manager and when you do conversation is avoided. Employees are treated treated as minorities and are constantly pitted against one another in everyday operations. Summers are extremely hot within the plant.

    Advice to Management

    The overall direction of this company is great. However, the management team in charge of ensuring this direction is followed leaves little to be desired. Since I've left, a few things may have changed. However, while I was an employee within this organization, various managers throughout the entire plant treated their employees as if they weren't important. This company has changed from family and team oriented to every man for themselves within the past year and I strongly believe it has to do with many of the new managers and cell structure presented within the organization.
