    Positive Outlook

    I have been working at FNH USA full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    -proud workforce
    -clean manufacturing facility, high tech equipment
    -contracts now more aggressive, new initiatives
    -one of the better HR depts I've seen. Benefits are competitive, education reimbursement is great.
    -most managers seem to care about employees' work-life balance

    Cons

    -old culture, resistant to change. Not a good attitude to have when defense contracts start to decline.
    -incompentency in a few of the managers. Increased amount of disgruntled employees if one of the incompetent managers is Belgian, as perception is that Belgian managers are 'untouchable'
    -quality issues in the supply base; better than it was last year, still a big opportunity for improvement

    I worked at FNH USA full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good benefits
    Management does care about its employees
    Quality products that employees can get behind.
    Company goes to great lengths to reduce the effects of downsizing and layoffs.

    Cons

    Business is largely based on government contracts and revenue can shrink fast at the realm of government.

    Departments seem to compete with each other for projects relying on political clout to decide who gets the resources.

    Some departments are clearly favored over others.

    Advice to Management

    Overall, I feel management is great. They could do a better job of making upper management appear less like the good old boys network. Upper Managers appear to compete with each other instead of helping everyone do a better job themselves.

    Pros

    Weekend shift availability. good benefits.

    Cons

    frequent shift changes. not enough manager/employee interaction.

    Advice to Management

    I worked at FNH USA (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    The company benefits where generous. Management prior to 2012 tried to create a open, friendly environment where they took care of their teams. Operated more as a small business in-house even though they were an international company. This has changed since then.

    Cons

    Lack of communication to the staff, uncertainty of job status, unrealistic exceptions. The parent company seemed to treat FNH USA as the step-child of the family of businesses.

    Advice to Management

    Communication, communication, communication. By not keeping the staff informed all it does is lead to speculation which is always worse than the truth. They can handle it.

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

    Pros

    Good 401(k) and benefits. Not aware of others.

    Cons

    If you are a salaried employee and choose to work at FNA, get ready to deal with 12-hour work day (plus weekends). The amount of work you will have, could not justify any pros working for FNA. On the top of that, you have to deal with different "clicks" or you are out.... Evaluation is not based on your input and quality of work, but how you please some "important" people (you need to know who they are, because sometimes they hold not the most important positions). Get ready to deal with a ton of politics, back stubbing, and behind you back rumors. If you are ready - WELCOME TO FNA! And best of luck to you.

    Advice to Management

    Face the reality. You have to confront the clicks in your company or FNA's business will go down.
