    Pros

    Laid back, easy going and really great insurance. Usually all the overtime you want to work and a 401K. Help pay for safety glasses and steel toe shoes!

    Cons

    many years of brazing and welding smoke. Very hot because they're is no air conditioning and that's when it seems you work the most overtime is int the summer months

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees like you want to be treated. Some of the management does ignore the suggestions of the employees

    Pros

    The people are good to work with, and things are fairly laid back on a day to day basis. There is an overall good atmosphere to work in, with the bad things usually are nothing more than petty office politics that seldom rise above the "annoyance" level.
    Individual people really care that what they do actually helps and supports the customer.

    Cons

    McQuay has a top notch product, but there is little drive to improve the office to match what is the real world product output of the equipment. A large number of people have been there 20+ years and while the factories produce, the management seems content to coast when it comes to the support of that product.

    Advice to Management

    Daikin bought McQuay and they have clearly made improvements to the factories and products to among the best in the industry. However there seems to be a fear to look at the management of the headquarters. There is a real need to step up what is done to support their customers after the initial sale. This is a lost opportunity that is given away to their competitors who kept up with communications better than McQuay.
    Change the focus to what is best for the customers, not what is easy for the office. There are improvements in computers and technology that they need to learn to use in the office, not just talk about- as what McQuay has works, but it is highly fragmented.
