    I have been working at Navistar full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Surrounded by very intelligent people - for the most part. Work life balance is good, if you are able to stay on track. Easy to get noticed by upper management. Due to previous 'conditions', management is always on the lookout for people who they can count on; you will get plenty of opportunities early on.

    Cons

    Attitudes of some workers just WILL NOT improve. Everyone in the company is familiar with the situation and the impact it's had on the business. Few employees maintain this piss-poor attitude and try to rub their negativity off on others—get over it, this gets us no where.

    Advice to Management

    Keep on doing what your doing. A higher level review of the long time employees could do a world of good. Get rid of those damn dark clouds they continue to fuel.

    Pros

    Navistar is a great place to work. Company is very concerned over employee morale and welfare. Good business practices, and they compensate employees very fairly.

    Cons

    Company does go through some up and down times in the market and has lay-offs.

    Advice to Management

    Hang on to your valuable employees, even if they are highly compensated.

    I have been working at Navistar full-time

    Pros

    Attention to work life balance, company culture and employee growth. Competitive salary and annual incentives. Great benefits, facilities and amenities.

    Cons

    Lots of emphasis lately is put on growth only if an employee has a degree. Employees cannot move past certain level without advanced education. Feeling is that this is a way to weed out older employees.

    Advice to Management

    Be more upfront and honest. Continue to focus on being open with employees and on company culture. Develop management training programs for employees earlier in thier career.

    I worked at Navistar as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    Excellent pay and benefits all around.
    Excellent training.

    Cons

    It's like working two jobs. Only one day to yourself. Works well for single people. Work in the hot and dry harsh areas of the Middle East.
    Longevity with the company is based on DOD contract status.
