    Pros

    None unless you like Napoleon as a leader!

    Cons

    People are leaving in mass which is telling. The senior management is poor and thinks they know everything. Organization is heavily political.

    Advice to Management

    The board needs to change the CEO and some staff.

    Pros

    Top notch co-workers and products.

    Cons

    During transitions no thought was given to past performance, sadly it all came down to who you knew. The side taking leadership roles acted as conquerors which pushed good employees out.

    Advice to Management

    Practice what you preach.

    Pros

    Good bonus plans if they don't screw you, which is very unlikely. All of the desired benefits are offered as long as you can tolerate the exclusive culture.
    .

    Cons

    Confused leadership imported from downsizing other segments, directions tend to be military two step. Autocratic. no room for discussion, charge ahead and kill everyone, let god sort them out. The corporate layer of managers tend to be market whores, no real focus on growing an integrated business, just buy, strip, salvage parts, and sell pieces that don't fit. Employees are of no concern, more will come with the next merger.

    Advice to Management

    Very poor corporate citizen outside of USA. If you practice your own dogma instead of changing management structure you might develop some long term devoted employees.

    Pros

    This company is continually improving and expanding as it works to stay competitive in a growing market. I have had a very positive experience here.

    Cons

    This job can require longer work hours, and that can definitely be a negative for some. Lower paid jobs especially have less flexibility.

    Advice to Management

    Practice what you preach.
