Pros

The day to day employees are like family. They have great value and pride. The location and office at corporate are nice.

Cons

Executive leadership lacks but that has recently changed. HR must go to make it a choice employer, Daikin should sell the AAF portion of the company and keep McQuay. They need to make some drastic head count adjustments again.

Advice to Management

They need to focus of streamlining strategy if they want to make a go for profit. Reduction in sites is a must.. Overhead rates are high. Make the cuts and quit dancing around. Start in HR top down. Don't be fooled by HRs pleasant responses.

    "Poor leadership and too much incompetent HR"

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Decent pay and benefits. Mostly good people to work with. There are a lot of veterans with very good product knowledge. There is a real desire for growth.

    Cons

    HR is completely incompetent. One example is when they opened the ADC, HR was in charge of the grand opening and sent out an email a month ahead of time for employees to choose to attend the catered meal. A week before the event they announced that all employees could not park their car on the premises and had to park half of a mile to a mile away. Lets just say that the food ran out halfway through the service.

    Senior management has no clue on how to implement Daikin's growth plan. Their best marketing job is to Daikin and the new CEO, not to actual producing and promoting products in the markets necessary for growth. Daikin wants them to be a leader, but McQuay continually operates in niche markets. Part of the veteran employees is that management is also full of long term people who haven't moved on from the micromanaging of the 60's and 70's. Performance is determined by how many hours you are at your desk. Some of the poor middle managers work 12 hour days, partially because the systems are antiquated.

    Advice to Management

    Daikin wants you to be a leader in the Commercial HVAC market, not the Applied. You have to think bigger than your comfort zone currently is. Clean out the HR department (again) and fix your systems issues. It will take getting rid of some of the long term managers to move forward. You should start with the managers who over-hired. Why are they still there?
