    Pros

    Nothing really, they have potential but lack leadership. The company is not what it used to be. The industry is hurting. Stay away

    Cons

    They go down along with their stock price. Belittling YOUNG arrogant management needs help. You know someone or you are nobody.

    Advice to Management

    HR needs help. No culture at all.. HR seems to want to eliminate the older folks.

    I have been working at Standard Motor Products full-time

    Pros

    SMP is very loyal to its employees and has a lot of "engineers" that have been working at the company for decades. The pay is good, the work low stress and there is never a need to stay late.

    Cons

    There is no interest in innovation or improvement. New ideas or techniques are often discouraged and those that are motivated (or excited by engineering) often move on quickly.

    Advice to Management

    None. They have found a niche that they are serving well without over taxing their workers. The company feels old fashioned but for some that is a great thing. However, for those that got into engineering to innovate, this is not the place.
