    I worked at Comau full-time

    Pros

    Really good people working there. Pay isn't bad as well and benifits.

    Cons

    HR seams to be a very big issue. If you have a problem don't waste you time she won't be of any help. A smile to your face a knife in your back. A real shame lots of great talent have left or could leave soon if changes are not made. One thing forsure no shortage of managers around 1 to every 5. Mostly just holding real progress up.

    Advice to Management

    Have a close look at your HR person she might not be helping you very much. Ask others that are gone and in the same dept.

    Pros

    Interesting industry & work. Decent benefits bc they have unionized production employees

    Cons

    The work is all project based. They will work you to death until the project is completed, then they lay you off. I didn't evn receive any notice or my earned unused PTO benefits.

    Advice to Management

    Stop treating full time employees like disposable temp workers.

    I worked at Comau full-time

    Pros

    No Pros - Group has no positive outlook for the next 3 -5 years

    Cons

    While working in the ICT group at Comau - Southfield, Mi, most is controlled by the head office in Italy, completely underfunded and using outdated equipment. No budget for new equipment or software. Promise of project progression never game true and always delayed to failure of budget and technology. The demand 24/7 support with out any notice for their old outdated equipment. New software updates and new technology was still 2 years outdated.

    Advice to Management

    Progress into the latest technology, and stop short staffing the groups.
