Pros

Having working at other OEM's- Navistar is an amazing company. Though the product is in a period of rapid recovery- its amazing how this company is set up. Once we get to the right after treatment set up, and things settle down, the company will accelerate. A new age of engineering core has been developed at Navistar and it is a cut above what I have seen in the industry.

Cons

The previous leadership attempted to force a technology in the field that was not valid and causing the current financial situation. This has left a good size challenge for everyone. There is a risk that despite all of our best efforts, it may fall short. But as we progress, the risk gets smaller progressively.

Advice to Management

We have a great engineering and product team, lets make some great products parallal to the engine work. Integrated Tractor Trailer, Scout SUV, Pro Star Replacement, Update the Legacy Product. The team in Lisle is talanted, and is up to the challenge.

    Pros

    Excellent facilities in new location. Design creativity is valued and encouraged.

    Cons

    Upper management sees employees and experience as expendable, go so far as to encourage employees to quit to maintain bottom line. Departments do not work well together, and the company as a whole feels very segmented and at odds.

    Advice to Management

    Employees may not buy your products, but they do make them happen. Your employees are your lifeblood, and you need to realize how crucial they are.


  2. "A company unclear if headed up or down"
