    I worked at C&D Zodiac full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Location. A few great people. Had turned productivity around massively in 18 months. One great Director in place. Future improvements in the works.

    Cons

    Favoritism, double standards, lack of proper professional training and procedures. Constant unnecessary changes. Focus on process but not on the employees. Huge disconnect between departments as well as between employees and upper Management. QA is poor to non existent. Not enough or lack of talent in the most needed areas. Low pay and training = poor quality. Many issues coming to light after the fact. No future for employees to move up. No mentoring.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in the employee. Make the employee part of the mission. Be more selective on who is hired and promoted. Compensate those who deserve it instead of who’s the favorite. Put in place training in a dedicated area, professional environment with time allocated to complete the training. Supervisors need to lead by example, not hide and point out others flaws to increase their worth. Increase staff to acceptable levels based on actual work load not projected work load via matrixes. Too much time chasing data which could be more productive in getting the tasks completed.
