  3. "Too many “managers/directors”, Stuck in the past, don’t want to progress, don’t rock the boat mentality"

    I worked at Navistar full-time

    Pros

    Close to expressway. Easy access to expressway.

    Cons

    STAY AWAY! Directors and above lack the skills of doing their jobs and the ones several levels underneath. Most directors / level 8 and those above only got to their roles because they were “FODs” = Friends of Dan who was the prior ousted CEO Dan Ustian. This nepotism exists across all functions from Engineering to finance to legal. This place is by far a meritocracy. Once Directors know you are smart and capable they will use you and cast you out of meetings so they can take the credit for your hard work. They will then keep you at your level 6 or 7 grade level until they don’t need you anymore. You will not get promoted despite their false promises.

    I have been working at Navistar full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    I really don't have a lot of pros to describe this place.

    Cons

    Bureaucratic, slow to react, no long term vision. I'm a senior engineer and this place is the worst run company I've ever seen. We jump thru hoops everyday while ignoring the long term repercussions. Our business philosophy is kick the can down the road and worry about it later.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Navistar full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    There are no pros to this company. CEO and CFO are con men...robbing investors without firearms...everything they say is just a lie

    Cons

    The downside of working at Navistar is that you are working for the most unscrupulous management team ever assembled...every word out of their mouths is total BS/Fake News!

  9. "Great people and experience"

    4.0
    Current Employee - Senior Engineer in Melrose Park, IL

    I have been working at Navistar full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Plenty of great people who are happy to pass along knowledge and experience. Flexible work schedule. Very stable job. Great experience with everyone from the Chief engineer level and lower.

    Cons

    Engineering executives more influenced by accountants than engineers. Program level decisions consistently align with cost reduction rather than applying lessons that have been learned many times over. It seems like there's never enough time to do something the right way at Navistar the first time, but there's always enough time later to patch it together when it's too late to address the root cause of an issue. Pay is average and increases are minimal.

    Pros

    Friendly work environment; flexible; good yearly bonus; good vacation

    Cons

    They do little to nothing to keep you. Not competitive with salary. Benefits are expensive and not the best. No diversity, and management does not care about it.
