Pros

Lots of sharp people. Good benefits.

Cons

The company is very tied to the automotive industry, to the point that it almost went under during the 2008 recession. Had to cut 25% of the workforce - included me.

Advice to Management

Don't take bonuses when you are in the process of laying people off.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    It is a small company atmosphere.

    Cons

    Inefficiencies are everywhere. Management is promoted based on a good old boy system rather than merit. Succession planning, management/leadership development are topics only practiced as lip service.

    Advice to Management

    Fill your ranks based on merit, not friendships. Lay a path for employees to succeed and allow them to do so. Give employees an opportunity (and support) to develop, grow, and move up within the organization. Lack of opportunity and development opportunities do not create a productive environment.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    The people are some of the best. Unfortunately, the new regime is cutting most of the good ones loose or forcing them to jump ship.

    Cons

    At one time benefits were great, but they slowly were taken away. Salary compensation was below normal, but good benefits drew me there.

    It is hard to move up if you're not political or if you're not in that one certain clique.

    Advice to Management

    Look closely at the senior leadership. Improvements can be made.
