Pros

Work with a interesting product. Moderate control of designs for size of company.

Cons

Pay does not meet industry standard. There is a significant imbalance with the amount of work assigned within the engineering teams. Often a select few will be handed a signifcantly higher workload.

Advice to Management

Far too top heavy. I have 7 people I report to on different days of the week. There are people with only a couple of people under them. Most companies this size don't have 9 layers of management.

Rethink how you reward and punish the engineering staff. The high turnover in IPD isn't because management is doing a fantastic job.

    I worked at Navistar full-time

    Pros

    Friendly, hard working Midwest culture. Good pay and benefits. It's a 100 plus year old company that has go through many ups and downs. I hope the company can become stronger after its latest setback. There is a foundation of good products to build on.

    Cons

    Going through some tough times now. New leadership needs to set a new course for the future.

    Advice to Management

    Continue listening to customer and employers. Focus on the basics for now (e.g., quality) and create a plan for future investments, product improvements.

    I have been working at Navistar full-time

    Pros

    Positive outlook. New exec. leadership team is smart, grateful for the opportunity, down to earth, and lacks complacency.
    New engine and emissions strategy has been well-received by the market.
    This 140 year old company will surprise you.

    Cons

    Lost some very talented people.
    Many reviews point to long hours to execute the engine turnaround programs. This was true, however it was necessary to course correct and move the company toward profitability.

    Advice to Management
