      • "a few bad apples"

        StarStarStarStarStar
          Current Employee - Anonymous Employee 

          I have been working at Phoenix Contact USA full-time for more than 10 years

          Pros

          Nice people to work with

          Cons

          Certain managers are willing to throw any and all of their employees "under the bus" for their own personal gain.

          Advice to Management

          Don't believe the "Great Place to Work" survey results. People know that you can trace individual responses, and are therefore lying on the survey in the interest of self preservation. There is a growing morale problem because of a few incompetent managers.

            Pros

            Great benefits. Excellent people and culture. Although the "Cons" list is much longer and detailed than the "Pros", this is still a great company.

            Cons

            Slow to adapt to quickly changing markets. Extremely conservative approach to adding resources holds back the company from reaching its actual potential, and overburdens some groups within the company. Couple this with the unwillingness to recognize and eliminate under-performing individuals and groups, it can become an extremely frustrating environment. Also, contrary to they own believe, the pay is below the market.

            Advice to Management

            Release the Kracken!!! Get the resources in place needed to let this company flourish, and refocus on the core competencies that will take this company to the next level.
