    Pros

    Great customers, lots of travel and great co workers. Awesome challenges and rewarding feeling when completing repairs for customers.

    Cons

    Poor management, company has fired dozens of employees over the last 6 months due to contract loss, looks better then mass layoffs on papet but at a terrible cost to the reputation of the corporation.
    Mass confusion on policy and procedures from one manager to the next.

    Advice to Management

    Stop destroying long term employees lives by firing them for no good reason and lie about why. Perform layoffs and packages instead of trying to look profitable by claiming the company is still doing well. The company is failing after the take over from Talaris/De La Rue. Just my 2 cents.

    Pros

    Interesting equipment. Great company overall.

    Cons

    Watertown WI production focused on getting product out the door, no matter what. Dishonest management. Backstabbiing atmosphere.

    Advice to Management

    Glory Japan should have more influence on quality and people. Watertown is a slap in the face to Japanese.

    I have been working at Glory Global Solutions full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Before it was Glory, things ran much more smoothly. Employees were treated with respect and listened too. There is lots of production and so much growth happening that the company has expanded it's facility.

    Cons

    Communication with employees is very limited. The Management I believe is not qualified to manage. Promises to employees never kept. The Management would rather sit in their office with the door shut.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate with employees. Don't play favorites and don't sit in your office and badmouth employees with other employees. The negativity is a huge issue. Cutting employees off when they have an opinion or valuable information to share is rude.

    Pros

    Wonderful team oriented atmosphere. Dynamic position, meaning that there were so many various responsibilities that each day would keep you on your toes and invite you to learn something new.

    Cons

    Very difficult to find any cons regarding this position other than the unexpected closing of our building due to a merger with any company and how it was handled. We were such a bonded and loyal family for so many fantastic years that it was a terrible surprise to all of us that we were left behind. Of course, businesses make moves like this on a daily basis, but there was something so unique about our building and work team that we, naively as it turns out, thought we could never be broken up.

    Advice to Management

    No advice. I understand that it was a move that involved a gigantic sum of money and they did what they needed to do to keep the shareholders happy.

    Company van, Company credit card, Company fuel card, Company Cell phone, Company laptop, Work from home, Vacation (10 Days a year), 8 paid holidays

    Cons

    Can travel a lot, Sometimes the training is learn as you go (you are taught the baseline on the machines but some to the knowledge just comes from experience), will have to be on call every 3 to 9 weeks depends on your area, not too much room to grow if you stay in your current area
