- There are people who really care about delivering a good product to the client. - Until now, the plant seems to leverage on local workers instead on being relocated to countries where costs are lower. - Product quality makes the company brand renown. - Is a company who cares about environmental issues.
- Even if meritocracy is one of the Invensys values, hard work is thanked with a mere pat on your shoulder. Salary reviews are so minimal that overdoing or loving to produce an excellent product really doesn't worth. You definitely won't bear off the salary you were employed with. - Promotion and benefits are given without transparency. If you receive a salary review (even if minimal) you are invited to not spread the word. - Managers make many promises and maintain very few. - Cost reduction seems to affect some working categories more than others and unconvincing explainations are given. - Company finds difficult to learn lessons from the past. - Company has not the courage to drop legacy products that are asking and will ask more and more resources. - Outsources are treated better than employees.

There was a surprisingly nice canteen with curry being a regular (near-daily) option. Like all companies there are many nice people just doing a job who you would be happy to go for a drink with. The very top tier of managers get airconditioning in their offices. The car park is generous.
No strategic direction. No cohesion and so no teamwork to be turned and tuned into sharp tactical thinking. As managers move upward they disengage with their staff and others at lower managementanagers move upward they disengage with their staff and others at lower managementanagers move upward they disengage with their staff and others at lower management levels. Get up and get out. This lack of engagement desperatly needs to be reversed. There is an innate fear of competition which paralyses positive action as does a widely self-held belief that they simply deserve to win. A more realistic understanding of the company's position is required. They have completely failed to build an open, honest and self-critical team of talent and so failed to master the market. To sum-up a once-great company choked by collective arrogance and willing ignorance now driven by fear.1
