Hard Working Enviroment
EV Solutions Intern (Former Employee), Warren, MIApril 11, 2014
Pros: managers listen to their workers.
Cons: hard to get a position with benefits.
I came to SPX after working in payroll for over a year. I was in charge of multiple databases that tracked things such as electricians that we had trained to do installs in certain areas. I was also in charge of recruiting electricians in areas where we needed coverage. I was challenged with a lot as an intern, but was given the guidance to take it – more... in stride. I was sad to leave there, but was not able to be hired after graduation. – less

A great place to work
Project Coordinator for Human Resources (Current Employee), Overland Park, KSFebruary 25, 2014
Pros: good pay and great learning opportunities
Cons: always on the clock
SPX is a great place to work. The employees are awesome and they appreciate HR and upper management. The company works very hard to show employees that they are valued and appreciated. As with most companies the days continue to get longer and the weekends tend to belong to the company with cell phones and laptops.

Everyone is expendable, lack of appreciation from upper management
Shared Service Center Middle Management (Former Employee), Charlotte, NCFebruary 13, 2014
Pros: beautiful building with bistro on site
Cons: unrealistic and inexperience upper managers
Upper Management in the Shared Service Center has no Shared Service Center experience. This lead to many issues and failures on their part, which they roll down to middle management. Nothing is ever good enough and the Director operates as though she is in a tornado....try to stay out of her way

Work Work Work - Competitive company somewhat mix between startup and fortune 500
Senior Project Manager (Current Employee), Overland Park, KSJanuary 31, 2014
Overall a good place to work if you like to work. There are many, many, many experienced people at different levels in the company - 30 to 40 years of experience. They are extremely passionate about the products, but are somewhat disillusioned by the corporate nature of the organization. They started working when it was a single owner and entrepreneurial – more... culture.

The leadership has been changing constantly at the business unit level leading to many different programs. The current leadership is well liked in the US and extremely aggressive. If you are a go-getter, you have oportunity to showcase your talents.

Like every other company, there is no onboarding time, no training time, just jump and swim. I enjoy working for this company, especially my management team all the way to segment VP. – less

Aftermarket Parts Coordinator (Current Employee), Battle Creek, MIJanuary 8, 2014
Cons: plant closing
I have thoroughly enjoyed working at this facility because of the people. Each work day brought new challenges but through team effort we accomplished a lot. Unfortunately, the team did not include management.

The most difficult part of the job is losing it.

The most enjoyable part of the job was maintaining it, making it my own and progressing.

Very poor ethics and sales methology
Regional Sales Manager (Current Employee), Corona, CANovember 5, 2013
Pros: divisions outside of the thermal product group are positive
Cons: stay away from the thermal product group; advancement is possible with other groups
The company is a fortune 500 company but the thermal products division is operated outside of corporate over-sight and the inexperience and unethical practices stand out.
