    I worked at SPX full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Firm used to be too diversified. But leadership did a good job of aligning business units. Direct supervisor was great. Helped develop a broad business knowledge. They do a good job of developing new talent with the rotational programs. Benefits are good and Pay is decent

    Cons

    Usual issues of a publicly traded big corporation. Things might not get done as quickly as you would hope. Too many realignments at the corporate level. Quarter to Quarter mentality at the plant level.


  2. "Overall a good experience working in a union environment."

    I worked at SPX full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Decent pay and benefits were good until it was bought by SPX. Direct supervisor was great and encouraged taking on personal projects to build experience and understanding of other departments.

    Cons

    Bought out by public company with share holders to satisfy. SPX is shutting down the plant after 1 year of ownership. Lack of accountability on the shop floor. Some floor supervisors are just there to collect paycheck.

    Advice to Management

    You know where the problem was, take charge and hold people accountable for their actions or lack thereof.
