    Pros

    Large corporation with lots of chance for career moves. Long standing reputation in the industry. Many loyal customers and a great dealer network.

    Cons

    In process of turning things around but in kind of a bad place right now. Recently lost a lot of good people from engineering organization.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Value your people. That is where the companies competive advantage comes from. Not from having a golden palace in Chicago.

    Former Employee - Marketing Manager in Lisle, IL (US)
    Former Employee - Marketing Manager in Lisle, IL (US)

    I worked at Navistar full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Pay is decent, as are benefits, new hires are generally upbeat and excited to do well. Corporate headquarters are outstanding -- cafeteria is awesome!

    Cons

    Upper management believes themselves to be incapable of error, middle management tends to seek to maintain the status quo, rather than challenge it with new ideas (people don't get promoted or rewarded for rocking the boat, even if their ideas turn out to be good in the long run). Despite a desire to be innovative, the company hangs onto old ideas too long. Bonuses are rarely fully funded, so even if one exceeds expectations, they receive less than the bonus they are promised.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Acknowledge that, while new ideas aren't necessarily better, you need to promote testing and trials, so you don't just dismiss innovation out of hand. If you want to be innovative, you need to walk the talk -- and reward people for doing so...not for keeping things the same as they always were, and then wondering why the competition is so far ahead.
