    Who is the captain of the sinking ship?

    AREA SALES MANAGER (Current Employee) Houston, TX (US)

    ProsFantastic products with some truly devoted employees.

    ConsSPX has dismantled a company that had a bright future. No clear direction from upper management with zero accountability.

    Advice to Senior ManagementFire the captain (s) get people in there that will lead and fix the ship. ClydeUnion was a fantastic place to work... Sad to see SPX get let down the path by VP's who do not seem to care about the future of the company.
