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

    Pros

    Plenty of work to do all the time. Lots of exposure to high level management. Decent work life balance. Motivated work environment. CEO is a highly motivated individual and is not afraid to get involved.

    Cons

    Too much executive involvement hinders the ability to work on long term projects effectively. Under compensated when compared to level of responsibilities. Other employees make it difficult to grow business and spread ideas. HR does not provide any actual support for employees when it comes to benefits and compensation. "Raise" and "Bonus" is a dirty word. Not once had a discussion about personal growth with the company. Middle management discourages new ideas whereas upper management encourages business expansion. Lots of conflicting opinions. Very poor database with limited information. Difficult to navigate with no training provided.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on long term goals rather than trying to grow the business 2x in 2 years just to sell to another company

    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.

    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.
