    I have been working at Standard Motor Products full-time (More than 3 years)

    People are very respectful and understanding.

    A little bit old-fashioned

    Pay more attention to training your employees and keeping them engaged and challenged.

    I have been working at Standard Motor Products full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Engineering work could be exciting and challenging. Continually have new projects to work on. New families of parts always being introduced.

    Cons

    Engineers responsible for everything on projects without ability to get other departments to do their job. Any time ask for help from others looked at as complaining about system. Very old school- 80's frat house mentality in engineering department. Parts and assemblies moving to China and Mexico that are easily outsourced.

    Advice to Management

    Manage, talk about one team, but only applies to leadership team! Work on change- the company needs to look at new and better methods to run departments. Old timers no system but new employees don't know how to get things through the system.
