    I have been working at Stewart & Stevenson full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Peers can be team players with a heart for success. Originally a People company.

    Cons

    Far too much management. Layoffs and the increase in pricing have hurt this 100+ year old company. No increase in employees wages in over 5 years and an increase in benefit costs along with the removal of the 401k match have impaired those who have been loyal.

    Advice to Management

    See the people who are working to make your company float. Take a risk on them as you did the company they run for you.

    I worked at Stewart & Stevenson full-time

    Pros

    People i worked with were great pay and benefits were pretty good.

    Cons

    Benefits got worse, 401k matching went away, watched the death spiral and we couldn't do anything about it.

    Advice to Management

    Stop hiring upper management and hire people who know what they are doing instead. 20 bobble heads just agreeing with the ambassador doesn't make a company that will last another 100 years.

    Good People, Nice Atmosphere

    Cons

    Upper Management could be more involved.

    Advice to Management

    To compensate workers for self worth and not take advantage of workers that take on more with out at least giving recognition or some kind of praise. Which helps keep moral and performance up.

    Pros

    Good company with solid reputation.

    Cons

    Senior Management is greedy and making it difficult for customers to do business.

    Advice to Management

    Sell the business to someone who knows the MTU, Allison, & DDC business. Get over the banker mentality and take a few risks. Your customer base will remember once the oil patch comes back.
