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

    Pros

    Great location and facility. Good variable compensation plans. Generous paid time off. Great place to build a name, a brand and a career. Ample opportunity for those who have the intellect, work ethic and political savvy.

    Cons

    Industry laggard without a clear path to closing the competitive gap. Pockets of apathy and content within the organization which encumbers strategic agility and shackles performance. Misguided focus on reducing SG&A in order to compensate for operational under-performance and a lack of strategic long-term investment in systems.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on the three or four things that in ten years people will say, that is why Navistar is a great manufacturing company.

    I worked at Navistar full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    When the business is doing well the company is good to work for and treats employees better.

    Cons

    When the market is down the company is hit hard and the employees suffer the brunt of added work as a reduction in force hits hard to save money.

    Advice to Management

    Stop the end of year sales push at the expense of the first quarter of the new fiscal year.

    Outsourced HR department an email away. They bring “potential “ VW buyout as an incentive during the interview (beware)

    Apply Sarbanes-Oxley concepts to all Vice Presidents, such as engineering and quality (corporate honchos responsable for FTQ)

    I worked at Navistar full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    They have a good cafeteria. And are located near good restaurants. I don't know. I didn't like the management, the pay didn't make the work you did often... Good work was rewarded with more work...

    Cons

    They will work your with unreasonable expectations. What I experienced was upper management only concerned witj themselves at the expense of the small guy

    Advice to Management

    Lower expectations, learn what you can and leave. Stay no longer than 5 years to get 100% vested
