No opinion of CEO

I worked at Navistar full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Navistar's overall compensation is fair. The company holidays tend to be slightly more generous than others.

Cons

The cyclical nature of the industry Navistar competes in means poor job stability and many layoffs. This makes it hard to work for the company as a "lifer."

    I worked at Navistar full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Kind people
    Hard-working coworkers
    Family and personal concerns well-accepted
    Winter Shutdown over Holidays

    Cons

    Management in disarray -- So much concern about what CEO will think that decisions are postponed, reconsidered, or simply not made at all. Work is often at a standstill.
    CEO and top management favoritism outrageous. Many personal perks for top managers that publicly-traded company should be circumspect about, all while lower-level employees under extreme pressure to cut costs. Top brass hosts meetings on tropical islands while employees are asked not to make color copies in order to save money.

    Advice to Management

    Empower your people and then let them do their thing.
