    I worked at Exide Technologies full-time

    Pros

    They have GREAT health benefits, LOTS of job opportunities, GREAT historical culture and can be a GREAT place to work.

    Cons

    Unfortunately, Exide goes through too many organizational changes and changes in management that causes instability for this company. Still trying to work through Chapter 11 reorganization issues.

    It has no clear direction of where this company is going and how it is to survive in this market. Due to poor communications and lack of direction, the morale is low and there are some uncertainties among employees.

    Exide's new lean changes in organizational structure some people are over worked. Work life balance is suffering.

    Compensation can be better.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate always with your employees. People like to feel like their thoughts, ideas, opinions, and concerns are being heard and matter. Each person brings special attributes and talents to the job. So, take full advantage of it!
