Manufacturing Engineer (Former Employee), Wichita – September 17, 2014
Pros: good 401k if you last at least 3 years
Cons: no integrity, toxic mis-management
I would recommend not applying for work here. I will list reasons and provide examples. These problems occurred mostly on a daily basis.
I recommend checking the CNH page as well. Easiest way to get there is outside (I used Google) search for “indeed CNH.” CNH Industrial recently changed their name and although they link their jobs to these reviews – more... (which sometimes seem a bit high on praise and short on words) workers are still posting reviews in CNH (which is how they know the company).
Extremely low integrity: Very high level manager acknowledged that high level managers below him were lying about important matters. This did not bother him. I had concerns about workload and management when I hired on and asked a high level manager about them. He lied to me then or I would not have hired on.
Toxic work environment: Management solely through negative reinforcement, seemingly without reason other than to dump stress. I was chewed on for half an hour for something that occurred months before I joined and was in a radically different area. Setting feet against new projects, feigning incompetence in the hopes of not getting involved, and stating “thats not my job,” has been beat into what should be a team. People actually hid so as to not be the first person that management saw.
Churning, constantly told to reverse course: Was chewed out for not going to a meeting that I was invited to while attending the meeting that conflicted (I was told to never bring a laptop into a meeting by the same manager, so there was no way to receive the new invite). The day before, I was told that the conflicting meeting that I attended was my highest priority (neither meeting was a pillar or safety meeting, which according to policy were highest).
One way communication: My last day, a manager was still making false statements to upper management about the function of a computer process that I had tried twice to straighten him out on. Once written, a computer program will only work a certain way, no matter how firmly you lie about it. Tool design was frequently forced on the floor without consideration for whether or not it was needed or even desirable, much less how it would be integrated into the overall processes and workload of the line. I was told to show the cost benefit of tools that were completely idle. Attempting to call attention to communication problems will lead shortly to a meeting with your management, being told how poor you are at your job and that the problem lies with you.
Plain ol’ mismanagement: We were in a budget crunch. I gave management my time requirements to complete a large mission critical task that I had prior expertise in. The standard contractor had made it clear that they did not want the work, as it was outside their scope. Even assuming that my time estimate was low by 50%, that I only worked 8 hr days (typically 11+ hour days not adding in beaks), and that corporate overburden adds an additional 200% to the cost of my pay, the contractors quote was about 4 times my quote (which was not cheap to begin with). I was chewed out for not insisting that the contractor do the work.
Very high turnover rate in my position. I was told that I would be the 5th in 4 years. I cannot verify. I urge you not to be number 6.
I will say, other departments did seem to have a better time of it – less
Contract Engineer (Former Employee), Racine, WI – August 27, 2014
Cons: management, games, good old boy network.
Worked on various projects and with WCM program over two plus years. Management will hide and use whoever they can to get what they can period. Projects are not well run and you never enough time given to do anything 100%. WCM program is very poorly run and not well understood by middle management much less upper. Good old boy network will keep anyone – more... new from reaching any real job path to anything but being a "pawn" in the whole shell-game.
Do yourself a favor and keep looking or move on! – less
hourly grunt (Current Employee), fargo – July 24, 2014
Pros: decent wages and benefits
Cons: quantity over quality, terrible management, just a number
typical day is supposed to be working, but generally waiting on equipment to be fixed because they dont invest in new, rather pour thousands into 20 year old junk. co-workers are a bunch of crabby old men. hardest part is realizing i dont have time to actually take pride in my work, its all about quantity here. I'm suprised this place can even operate. – more... The management couldnt get any worse. – less
Productive, Decent pay and Challenging workplace with great co-workers.
Warehouse Associate (Former Employee), Mountville, PA – July 23, 2014
Pros: overtime, hourly rate, benefits, clean and safe work environment, friendly work atmosphere
Cons: click scanning system for rf guns is clunky and buggy
I worked for CNH Industrial for about 6 years and during my time there I learned many transferable job skills including driving various powered vehicles and working safely with co-workers to meet daily productivity demands. Everyone was friendly for the most part but management did have a tendency to display favoritism towards certain employees.
There – more... is a lot of overtime and employees have good benefits. One of my biggest complaints about CNH is their new processing system "CLICK" which is very buggy and forces employees to dig through menus instead of having a simple layout to perform their tasks efficiently. One of the best aspects and motto i learned at CNH is "Continuous Improvement", I think it's something that can be applied to life as well, to constantly seek improvement and better yourself. – less
Director (Former Employee), Racine, WI – May 29, 2014
Pros: being able to work with the dealers to solve problems.
Cons: the annual review process, stress of not hitting numbers and not having control to do much about it.
I had a lot of customer contact which I enjoyed. Working with dealers allowed me to really learn the business. Upper management is focused only on hitting numbers which in some cases are set for you as opposed to being able to set your own budget. The hardest part of the job was budgeting aspect where finance pretty much told us where we had to come – more... in at to hit company goals. If you wanted a higher number you were forced to provide cost savings to offset. – less
A company of slave-drivers equipped with supervisors that "lead by intimidation" and employees that are physically and verbally abusive.
Manufacturing Associate (Former Employee), Fargo, North Dakota – May 12, 2014
Pros: good salary, some decent employees, good benefits.
Cons: bad supervisors, hostile training, rude employees, company expected "the impossible"
CNH changed their name so that readers could not see all the previous horrible reviews about their company. Now they are CNH Industrial and have glowing reviews. Anyone who has read the Indeed Forum Reviews for awhile will know that I am not lying. Don't be fooled. Let me tell you a little bit about this so-called "great company." My first day on the – more... job I was told by one of the supervisors that the company had just gotten over a period where employees were being harassed. I should have read the writing on the wall that day. Every day I was told by my trainer and other employees that the company was not going to keep me. (day and night shift). If I was going too slow installing parts on a tractor, my trainer would literally shove me out of the way, and do the work himself. This behavior was acceptable with one of the supervisors. Most of the new employees were pretty cool, but the veterans were rude, and treated you like you were an idiot. I was expected to complete 13 units on my shift. You are constantly busy and expected to know a lot in a short period of time. You don't have time to waste one minute at this company because of production expectations. My supervisor was always looming over me and lead by "intimidation." He was two-faced and you never knew what to believe from him. He did not give me my reviews when he was supposed to, and always had an excuse. The only superior who seemed to have any brains was the Night Manager. My job was physically demanding, but what was worse than that, was having to deal with the insults, and physical contact from my trainer. The most enjoyable part of the job was breaks and leaving every day. I heard how bad of a place this was to work before I even stepped foot in the door. If I had to do it all over again, I would not even have went to the interview. My zeal for money overrode my good judgment. Don't walk, but RUN from this place! – less
