    I worked at AxleTech International as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great opportunity for growth, working on real projects rather than menial work. Respect within company for students and interns

    Cons

    Must be a self starter, very little time working with manager, lack of oversight on detailed projects.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure interns readily have access to a mentor that can advise specific projects.

    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

    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.

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

    Pros

    The culture among fellow workers and lower levels of supervision is good. They do put a good effort into making a safe work environment through ergonomic study and corrective action. Employee reward programs are a good incentive to get people involved.

    Cons

    Very little communication from senior levels of leadership. New business seems to have all but dried up. Company always seems to be up for sale. Plays to blame game too much.

    Advice to Management

    Communication of what direction this company is trying to move in would help calm peoples nerves and help build confidence in the future of AxleTech. Silence forms nothing but distrust. A monthly newsletter would be a welcome sight.

    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.

    Be very transaparent with the employees, there is a lot of unrest and unease right now with all of the changes
