Pros

My experience as an engineer has been fulfilling and my colleagues we fabulous people. This is a place where a career and lifetime employment in the battery is almost a given if you do your job.

Cons

Executives have their own agenda, unfortunately it has brought the company down, and many quality employees have left because of their poor decisions.

Advice to Management

Think of employees before yourself interest. They have great ideas and the company's future would be more successful with their input rather than yours. Be more transparent as well, trust is a good thing.

    Pros

    It is a job and a paycheck. There are some nice people that work for the company, but that is about it.

    Cons

    Short staffed, poor management, no direction, no money, bad atmosphere, no 401k match, benefit costs going up more then average, no pay increases, no communication, poor operations, a lot of bad employees

    Advice to Management

    Take the time to do some true organization development making clear lines of responsibilities and make people accountable. Have people work in their specific area and colaborate with other groups, but focus on doing their own job and giving direction to their own staff.

    Pros

    Location and proximity to my house made this a favorable position. If you like hands on work, this is a great place. My supervisor and peers were educated and hard working. The company had talent in several of the key positions.

    Cons

    The strategic planning of the company was less than favorable. They try to encompass too many markets instead of keying in on the products that produce to the bottom line. The workforce does not realize the importance of a quality product. The manufacturing facilities are not strategically located nor are they fully utilized. There is no best business practices in place that govern the operations.

    Advice to Management

    Consolidate the division, drop the low market share products and focus on developing a superior product for the major products.
