    Pros

    It's a job. If you want tons of overtime this is the place for you.

    Cons

    Lost of overtime. No appreciation. They set you up for failure. They rush your training and mandatory 50+ hour work weeks almost immediately.

    Advice to Management

    Give a crap about your employees.

    I worked at CNH Industrial N.V. full-time

    Pros

    The only positive was that the team members (direct colleagues) were very nice. However, they refuse to speak up and push back on things that they want to because they want to keep the “peace” as well as keep their job.

    Cons

    Overall, work/life balance is non-existent and direct management is inept and promotes questionable/unethical behavior. Travel expectations were outright lied about during the interview process. (Dealer Audit) Expect to travel at least 12 Sundays and 110 weekdays per year at the very least (more if you want to meet top annual objectives to achieve your bonus). Also note that the travel schedule changes frequently, and saying you can’t travel specific weeks will get you in trouble quickly; they want you to be available at their beck and call. It is absolutely impossible to schedule your personal life more than 2-3 weeks out. As a “thank you” for all of your time spent traveling away from your home and family, they will require that if you fly home on a Friday and land during the workday, you will need to drive to the office for the remainder of the day. To avoid this, other team members purposely take flights that have crazy connections and get in late so they can say they traveled most of the day (and earn more airline points) and won’t be told they have to come into the office. If you are efficient with your flights and time, you are penalized, but if you are inefficient (and spend more of the company’s money) you are rewarded. Communication is absolutely terrible, and micromanagement of staff is to a level I’ve never seen before. Logging into Skype is required and is used to track when employees are working. If you forget to log in you will be reprimanded. Every flight you book has to be approved before booking (this ensures they have control over your schedule). If you finish an audit early you will first be grilled about how/why you finished early, and then you will have to jump thru a million hoops to get approval to change your flights to come home early. Training of new staff is an absolute joke, and for every person who trains you, you will get different information, only to eventually be scolded and blamed by the manager when you repeat a “wrong” answer or procedure that someone else in the group taught you. Trust is something that appears to never be gained, and if you question anything at all, regardless of whether you are right or not, you will quickly get blacklisted by management. Direct management is unable (or unwilling) to see the errors they are making. I shared some of their methods and practices with auditors outside of CNH with 17+ years of external and internal auditing experience, and they concurred that auditing methods were questionable (and often made no sense). Turnover is extremely high, with average tenure being maybe a year. Those outside of the department even remark about the high turnover because they are always seeing new names and faces. HR is also unable (or unwilling) to do much to help employees, and employee court cases against this company are not uncommon.

    Advice to Management

    It’s time to clean house of inept management. Find good communicators who understand risks and controls and how those factor into company processes. Stop encouraging employees to be lazy and inefficient by rewarding those who take flights that take 4 times as long to get somewhere when there is a direct flight available. Allow people to fly home on Fridays and have whatever remainder of the day there is to catch up on the things they’ve left for the past week while they were doing work for you. Be lenient with comp time for all the weekend travel you require. Good companies usually give a half or full day of time off for any weekend travel, and some go even further than that to ensure their employees have some work/life balance (i.e. allowing a day of working from home for each week you’re gone). Stop micromanaging and start trusting your employees; you will get more and better work out of them if you do. Also, stop using audits as a way to pad budgets and instead use them as a teaching tool to help your dealers become more efficient and successful.

    I worked at CNH Industrial N.V. full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great AG brand. Above average 401k benefits. Lots of great people.

    Cons

    Where to start? Totally ridiculous performance review system which force ranks peers against one another (REALLY constructive for teamwork!). You will get knocked for no reason other than flack from the top-down attitude. Unicorns/high-performance individuals are held back and the people who aren't productive move up (someone has to get them out of the way, right?). When my position was eliminated there was no exit interview (so here you go!). Hysterical employees are welcome. Chatty people Approved. AG cyclicality really hurts head count and morale, but morale IS better than other places. Credit for your work will get stolen if you don't advocate for yourself.

    Advice to Management

    #1 - Overhaul the culture (and policies?) of HR - imagine the struggles they must be going through. In tandem, put your people first
    #2 - Listen to your field employees, less Wall Street more customer/product

    There is nothing good about working here

    Cons

    Management doesn't know how to manage their way out of a paper bag. They think they can get more product out the door without parts and unfinished tractors

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees

    Pros

    -It is very fulfilling to be apart of something that is so big in the upper Midwest and in the world.
    -There is an opportunity for advancement.
    -Good pay for the area

    Cons

    -Shop floor moral is very low which a lot of times creates a bad working environment
    -It seems management would rather work a smaller production team 6-7 days a week at 10-11 hours a shift then hire more people on to absorb the extra work

    Advice to Management

    Remember to consider the practicality of an idea when making lean or World Class Manufacturing (WCM) improvements, just because it may look good on paper doesn't mean it makes everyone's job more easy.

    Pros

    They will teach you to operate equipment, a skill you can take elsewhere.

    Cons

    Way too many to list. They honestly need about 20% more people, but instead, work the crap out of everyone. I left there after working 2 years, really going at it to be a top 10% guy, but it just wasn't going to do any good. I watched my manager (one of the best I've ever had) packing to help get production numbers up, doing what he could because he knew we were giving our all and still not clearing the bar that had been set way too high. Every night, for 8 of the 10 hours, there he was, working like a field hand.... they ended up firing him... for production numbers.

    I left and am now driving equipment for a much better company.

    Advice to Management

    It's so broken, I don't know where to begin. Realism? Maybe start there.
    You need entirely new time studies. And yes, on paper, productivity will dive... but it's the same amount of work being done, so it's only perception. But it would be a TRUE and CLEAR data point. Small example would be the Mezz picking rate. Nobody. Not anyone... can make that rate.

    Pros

    Good salary and good benefits.

    Cons

    It's very hard to advance in the company. Time is not given to learn new skills to expand career opportunities. The feeling of being "stuck" is very real.

    Advice to Management

    Try to give opportunities to those who desire to learn more. It will help you and the company in the long run.

    Pros

    Good 401K Match. There are some good people working here.

    Cons

    Company still thinks of itself as an heavy duty vehicle manufacture. It does not understand that electronics are the future of farming and construction. There are very little processes and upper management takes a very long time to make simple decisions. There are no annual merit increases. People have not gotten raises in 7 years. The annual review process is outdated and considered obsolete by mainstream corporate America.

    Advice to Management

    Spend the necessary money to modernize. Value your employees and create the appropriate structure for them to succeed.
