    I have been working at Columbus McKinnon full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Use to be a strong company, use to manufacture good products, use to value employees, use to make good decisions, use to......

    Cons

    The company is headed to a dead end. Executive leadership and director-level management do not understand what made CM great, the people. Now, it is all about the almighty dollar. Revenue over employees. Personal growth over reason. The entire corporate HR team left the company, so that speaks volumes. Where is our Board of Directors? What is their role in this failure?

    Advice to Management

    Commit the resources necessary to right the Chattanooga operation or sell the business unit. Develop a five year plan with targeted realistic improvement goals; stabilize leadership (5 GM's in last 3 years) and have the patience to see it through. The impact of your decision to merge Chattanooga and Midland Forges without a coherent transition and operational business plan is what is the driving challenge for the facility....
