    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.
