Pros

None, I do not believe there are any Pros.

Cons

Beware of this company. They will tell you that you are great to your face and behind your back they will backstab you and sell you out to save their own job. How can you treat your employees that way. It is no wonder no one trusts in this company. The GM will do and say anything to save his own behind. Eventually, things will catch up and people will realize what a joke this division is. I would not recommend this company to anyone. If you want to die or a heart attack and have no family time this is the company for you. I can't see this division staying around to long unless there are BIG changes.

Advice to Management

Fire yourselves and start over.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Smart people
    Good products
    Ability to drive change and make improvements
    Interesting project work
    Performance driven culture
    Good pay and benefits

    Cons

    Minimal recognition given
    Company seemed to be going through an identity crisis: Are we a (decentralized) holding company or a (centralized) operating company?
    Lots of process inefficiencies and waste
    Leadership could be short-sighted at times.

    Advice to Management

    Think bigger picture. Invest in long-term solutions that yield strong ROI over time, rather than favoring short-term band-aid fixes that have a more immediate impact on bottom line, but aren't fixing the root cause.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Get out early on Friday

    Cons

    Always on mandatory overtime. Always running out of parts. Unrealistic takt times, Management is a joke. Very political environment. Doesn't value employee feedback. High turnover. Underpaid. They lie about everything.

    Advice to Management

    Do business with vendors in the US. Waiting 2-3 months for parts from Europe is ridiculous. Pay your people. Treat your long time employees as assets.
