    I have been working at SPX full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Reasonable benefits and good people who are willing to work long and hard to get the job done

    Cons

    Reorganize too often and is over matrixed with a lack of executive clarity around corporate enterprise goals.

    Advice to Management

    Less is more. Clearly understand what you want and what it takes to get what you are asking for, commit, then support your resources.

    I worked at SPX full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Competitive compensation, site management recognizes that there are organizational deficiencies, solid backlog position for at least a year (or more). Building a pool of excellent staff & mid-level management. This will be a great place for someone who has a strong desire to experience grass-roots organizational change in a small-ish group within a large corporation.

    Cons

    The organizational deficiencies are crippling, management is unable to build or articulate a concensus roadmap to improvement (I believe that they are moving in the right direction, but too slowly to impact 2012 & perhaps 2013). The top-level corporate culture (as stated & communicated from Charlotte) is definitely good & noteworthy, but it has not yet taken root in Houston.

    Advice to Management

    Do not be afraid of or overly cautious about change; the Houston facility has fantastic potential that can be unlocked with a plan & commitment from management that invites employee participation & input. There is a wealth of knowledge & experience that needs to be transferred from the individual level to the institutional level & it will not happen without more commitment from the top. Be more concerned with building a sustainable set of processes that will allow visibility into next year than with the next month of shipments; the month is important, but at what cost?
