    I worked at Tower International full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Steady pay. (that's all that is positive)

    Cons

    Poor management team. Hostile environment particularly for minorities and women. Terminations without cause.

    Advice to Management

    Upper management and human resources should vet all actions of the current management team. Poor decision-making is standard. Female industrial engineer (V.) was discussed in highly graphic and profane terms by the Greenville management team. Male colleagues openly discuss their visits to brothels. Dire lack of respect for women and minorities. Horrible environment and morale.
