Field Service Engineer (Former Employee) – Shelby Township, MI – 23 August 2016
Stop with the "turn and burn" approach you have with road warriors. Every (2) years there is a mass exodus of Service Engineers and that's directly related to how the work horses are beaten down over and over again while the "do nothings" of the group are coddled. The good workers have a hard time getting weekends off and vacation time approved. Quit the micro management of the good workers and start looking a little more at the lesser techs. Hold the sub-par employees accountable for their shoddy work. Provide a company credit card for travel expenses - there's no reason a company of this size should expect us to float the costs of travel.
Pay is good, plenty of travel (if you're into that), company provided training
Poor management, no room for advancement if you're good at your job, decent insurance is way too expensive considering the size of the company, no company credit card for travel
Sales Operations (Current Employee) – Shelby Township, MI – 15 May 2013
Working with the international side of business was great. Local branch has some moral issues (gossiping). Hardest part of the job was trying to please international headquarters and local subsidiary which at times had opposite objectives. Immediate team was very collaborative both internationally and locally.
free lunch and beverages, trips to Germany, great benefits
