    I have been working at AxleTech International full-time

    Pros

    The company has a lot of potential - good history, good product, lots of knowledgeable employees who don't mind spending the time helping others. Laid back atmosphere, with opportunity to learn as much as you want.

    Cons

    The projects are very cost driven. Not too much focus on new product. Instead, much of the focus is on how to make current products cheaper.

    Pros

    Usually promoted supervisory positions from within. A wide variety of custom axle design which kept the build more interesting. Good wages and benefits

    Cons

    Over a half dozen sales of the business in 19 years. Lack of direction and communication from the upper management.

    Pros

    People are friendly. Opportunity for advancement if you work for it. New CEO this year is 100% improvement over last CEO.

    Cons

    Sales teams need to bring in more sales. Not much else to complain about. It's a good place to work.

    Advice to Management

    Drive top sales leaders to manage their sales teams and help the sales people bring in more business.

    I worked at AxleTech International full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Nice people to work around on daily basis. Good benefits decent salary.

    Cons

    Top management guys are selected based on friendship relations. One of the managers from Engineering didn’t have even a high degree but he lasted over one year sinking the company. No chance to be promoted if you don’t make friends, skills come after. Normal workers are just numbers on a list for the top managers.

    Advice to Management

    Do real evaluation based on skills and forget for a second about friendship. Get rid of some old guys with fat salary that are doing nothing and promote the new talents. Hire managers that know and deserve to be managers!

    I worked at AxleTech International full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    There were (operative word) some good people. The bad culture outweighed the good and many either left or the best were asked to leave based upon political agenda, especially the notorious Purchasing Department.

    Cons

    No communication, no direction, back-stabbing culture, would not accept expert advice, but only relied on good 'ol boy culture.

    Advice to Management

    Fire most in the purchasing Department. It will lead to better cooperation, improved sourcing, margins and overall health of employees. They are bad news top to bottom!
