    Pros

    Fun work experience when the times where good

    Cons

    Poor Poor Poor Management. Joke

    Advice to Management

    Listen to people who take great pride in the product and listen to what they say. We are test engineers with degrees and years of experience working to only benefit the company as a whole/team. Instead, management would demote/layoff people who were considered "Not a Team Player" but in retrospect were considered by peers as a top performer and brought much value to the organization. Management couldn't deal with the truth which in turn reflect on the overall status of the company as they try and get back their customers.
    Too bad Volkswagen purchased a portion of Navistar to help bail them out of financial trouble for the past 5 years. Should have let them fail and file chapter11/13 and let the stock holders/investor know the real truth. about management there
