    Pros

    - Friendly and helpful co-workers.

    Cons

    - Pay rate.
    - Doesn't have a very clear scope for engineering co-op.

    Advice to Management

    - Should pay more attention to their employee performance and duty. A big project can turn out really wrong if not being reviewed carefully by engineers and experts.

    I worked at Electrolux full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    If you are connected to the right people can be a great experience.

    Cons

    The Marketing organization in North America is very weak. Leadership in this area has been lacking for a long time and recent structure changes will not improve on this. High level strategies for the company in NA make it clear that marketing is not a focus area currently. If you are building a career in Marketing, this may not be the company for you.

    I worked at Electrolux full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Electrolux provides a facility with current and valuable resources/ testing laboratories. The company boasts a diverse and international work force where employees often eat lunch together and interact.

    Cons

    At times the operation feels fairly over extended and attention to detail is missed. Making decisions is a long process with various signatures of approval often required.

    Advice to Management

    A common goal / direction needs to be provided. A better system of organization and project management will improve efficiency around the office and factory.

    Company is flexible with work and life balance. More of a project manager role than purchasing role.

    Create a bonus program built around goals and objectives of the role

    Pros

    They offer good benefits. Medical nsurance, eye and dental insurance and a good 401k match. The job keeps you busy daily.

    Cons

    The location is still considered a start up so things get crazy. There is a lot of turn over in the plant and in managment. Everytime it seems tp be getting better someone comes in and changes processes up causing issies and downtime again.

    Advice to Management

    Accountability! Transparency and respect. Mostly accountability, more of this needs tp happen tp fix the issues.

    Pros

    Weekly pay that's it literally

    Cons

    Point system, no room to advance, long hours with short notice, untrained supervisors including yelling and literally fighting with employees, internal politics, parking, Not wanting to pay people for positions that they are doing but can't get job titles for and 30 mins for lunch for a 10 hour shift or more and not wanting to give two 15 min breaks per law. Not hiring the temp after 30 to 60 days how they are supposed to some temps were there for 6 months or longer before getting hired with no benefits and no paid off days. No sick time only 10 full days or 20 half days per year. Not wanting to let people off for dr's appt. A dr's notice is still a point on your record and at 6 points you are out the door regardless of job performance or length of employment. Medical dept refuses to give full information about short term disability.

    Advice to Management

    Stop putting undeserving people in positions that they don't deserve because they tell you what they want to hear. If you have such heavy turn over there is a reason. Why exactly is there more then one temp service at this location? Monitoring of this location would definitely turn up some hidden things.
