Pros

Good global manufacturing experience.
Great global footprint
Well respected EMS provider for OEM's....trying to shift focus to supply chain service company and shirk true EMS moniker.
Creating partnerships with very large companies to play in evolving eco-systems.

Cons

Direct Labor treated as a commodity and disposable.
No loyalty.
Super tight cost focus due to low margins. Lay-offs regular, reorgs regular, travel freeze regular.
Forecasting is weak.
Culture given good lip service....not truly lived.

Advice to Management

CEO needs to get more active/engaged with employees. Good customer focus guy....weak employee focus. No EQ, good IQ Has great ability to do so, but chooses not to.. More respect for GM's at manufacturing plants needed. Corporate calls too many shots independent of local site input.

    Ask the team what needs to be fixed - they know.
