    I worked at Mauser full-time

    Pros

    Rock solid manufacturing company. Truly believes in regulatory compliance, safety, quality and customer service. They are privately owned, so people really are an asset to them. They are an international company that supplies product to all types of industries, so they are nearly recession proof.

    Cons

    Way to quick to shuffle executive management to solve operational issues and no one from corporate management talks to plant level management. As Plant Manager, I had 4 bosses in 2 years and saw them send the best sales rep they had for my product line out of Houston area, the biggest market. Then, no one noticed that well over half of my business was from his new territory.

    Advice to Management

    Quit second guessing your executive level selections and aline them regionally. Then, do not move them for at least 3 years. Plant level management needs to know the product. Executive/ regional needs to know the local market for finished goods, raw materials and staffing, state laws in HR and regulatory compliance, area contractors and possible shared services/ equipment other plants in the area to support plant level management with these functions.

    I have been working at Mauser full-time

    Pros

    The actual productions workers on the floor are very good hard working people to work with.

    Cons

    The Supervisor and most of the leads are uneducated hillbilly types that can't see past the color of one's skin to see any potential benefit the person may bring. The boss came down from Chicago and I though ok maybe this guy will see the problems try to fix it. Well he is no better than the group of hillbilly leaders he has in place. It's a workmen's comp claim paradise...if you're into that type of thing. I am not.

    Advice to Management

    Advice to Corporate is fire and start over. No way you succeed with the barbarians you have in place in management and leadership at Conroe in the fiber division.

    Pros

    The people working on the production floor are great and very hard workers. The people on the floor know that needs to be done. The plant has 3 unions so the pay is good.

    Cons

    Keeps cutting staff to make good numbers. More than half of the equipment is old and they keep putting money in to them when they should replace them. Some of the equipment is 20 or more years old and Mauser GMBH makes their own line of new equipment.

    Advice to Management

    Stop trying to make the plant run like GM and just make a good product. Upgrade your equipment and stop putting money in to very old equipment. The people that investers that own Mauser should take a very hard look at how their money is wasted.

    Pros

    Pays usually above average
    Top performance is rewarded appropriately

    Cons

    Only emphasis is on short term financial results. Management can be very weak. HRs fonction does very little. Work atmosphere is terrible.
    The group management is of german culture with a general bias towards some other nationalities.

    Advice to Management

    Build a group culture, common values
    Build a real HR fonction
    Learn about cultural differences to succeed everywhere
    Stop measuring everything through monthly ebitda, focus on strategy and its execution
    Stop treating every employee like a walking cost center. Ne Human.
