    Pros

    Good co-workers were interested in the company being successful. Usually had the tool you needed to be successful.

    Cons

    Unstable environment, focused on the now not so much the future. Management was inconsistant, some manager were leaders, others were poor managers.

    Advice to Management

    Need more focus on staff members. Your business is only as good as the people you have working in it. Focus on retaining key staff members and profits will follow.

    Pros

    The training provided are top notch (also depending on who's your supervisor). There are many talented individuals working there. Benefit is pretty good.

    Cons

    Low salary to begin with. There are problem with talent retention. A lot of people are leaving. Lack of management. CEO (JP) is money hungry and squeeze every penny out of employees.

    Advice to Management

    Stop squeezing profit out of employees' salary. Have proper recognition in place for well-performing employee. Hope the management under new CEO will be better.

    Pros

    Compensation Fair, health care average, plenty of current business, ZF acquisition. The biggest Pro is the people, they are without exception great.

    Cons

    below zero employee moral, disconnected and disinterested upper management. Out dated and disconnected IT systems make executing global sourcing/production a Major challenge. Clearly, not an employee friendly work place. The ZF integration when complete, may address these matters.

    Advice to Management

    to compete with the tier 1 leaders, one must recognize the firm's challenges and map out a effective, measurable plan to change/overcome them. Conservatively a 2 - 5 year effort.
