    Pros

    Most of the departments work well together but Human Resources has an archaic mindset from the Directors to Talent Acquisition. They all need to look at organizations outside Bendix to see how a real HR team should perform

    Having our German parent always looking over our shoulder!

    Advice to Management

    1, Reorganize Quality
    2, Reorganize Human Resources

    Salary not bad. Car and T&E is workable. Good team of people.

    Cons

    Sales is cut in downtowns instead of focused upon and investment. Out w high salaries and back in w low.

    Advice to Management

    Keep your good people because it takes 2 years to really know the products and accounts, territory, competitors. You’re shooting your business in the foot by biting the hands that feed you and all the people in manufacturing. Shame on you. But the typical HR people who treat salespeople as a strict commodity. Change your HR Paradigm!!!!
