    Pros

    Computer software is kept current and works well. Pay was about average for this career field. File management system seems to work well.

    Cons

    Building is in poor condition with roof leaks. Supervision is unpredictable. I kept examples of prints and models that were previously approved and followed these examples when making something similar yet these would suddenly be all wrong when I turned them in. I asked if there was a drafting standard so I had a guideline to follow and was told "yeah I need to do that one day" (this was someone who'd worked there for over 20 years). I never knew what was expected of me.

    Advice to Management

    Get it together!

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Good Product, lots of warranty issues, some nice people, company around for a long time.

    Cons

    Management only thinks about themselves. It is about the bottom line that goes back to Corporate in Europe. No direction and mission.
    Employees spend more time covering their A%$es than trying to build the company.
    Products have serious quality issues.
    Salaries are weighted to the executives, not the employees.
    Huge turnover.

    Advice to Management

    Sell the company to someone that can bring it back to greatness. Existing management is not trusted and does not understand the culture nor the business locally.

    Pros

    Well, the only pros was the company van, cell phone and 23 days of vacation.

    Brand name is very good, which is the only reason why the company is still surviving. Market is good for this Industry. The Organization can achieve greater things moving into good / Efficient / Pro active hands.

    Office culture is not good at-all, men who were employed by 90's are still part of the organization so No new Improvements have been made.

    Advice to Management

    * Should take care of the Employees w.r.t compensation * Should look for Decision making individuals at higher posts

    Pros

    The company is people sensitive. The compensation are at par with the market standard. Provide ample opportunity to its employee to adjust in the working environment. The leave structure is more than sufficient to consume and it take care the training and development initiative too. Try to gauge the level by hiring services of external experts.

    Cons

    Decisions making process is slow resulting hindering the speed of growth in competitive environment. Week management, delayed decisions, unfair practices, no written policy, and diplomatic work environment.. Un healthy interpersonal relationship blocking the company's growth and reward system is biased.

    Advice to Management

    Need to be more focused towards the growth and to be ready for taking tough and speedy decision.
