    I worked at SAF-HOLLAND full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Learned a lot from co-workers who had worked there several (10+) years.

    Cons

    The closing of the Northern plants was a bad idea that left a lot of people without jobs. Even if you were not an hourly employee, there was a GREAT chance that the rug would be snatched from under you. The severance packages they offered to employees who had been there 20+ years was disrespectful to say the least.

    Advice to Management

    Learn some ETHICS!

    I have been working at SAF-HOLLAND full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Decent pay, decent people, decent company, nothing too great but not bad.

    Cons

    A lot of hours. Working Monday-Thursday 10 hrs a day and 9 hrs on Friday. 8 hours on sat-sun. 7 days a week. Just easier if you don't have a family.

    Advice to Management

    Could give a day off a month or so. Not necessarily give less hours. But days off do help with employee's mental and physical stability.

    I worked at SAF-HOLLAND full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    co-workers, co-workers, and more co-workers

    Cons

    Local management & HR are a joke, Senior management needs to get a better handle on things. No career opportunities. Local management told me when I left & the yearly raises where just given out, "to bad you didn't take the transfer - this is what you could have made this year". Heartless is all I can say

    Pros

    Good employees who are committed to their work and to company goals. Decent pay and good benefits. Global organization organized regionally.

    Cons

    Not diversified, heavy truck and trailer business is a cyclical industry and downturns are significant. Public company so quarterly and annual financial performance affects company behavior.

    Advice to Management

    Take longer view. Reorganization to regional structure should be beneficial. Treat employees the same at all global locations, do not be so German-Centric.
