I have worked for several large OEM automotive and machinery manufacturers. I have worked in "shark infested" companies, and have a thick skin as a result. In manufacturing, a certain amount of "pressure" is to be expected. Managers can be expected to vent or be intense just because it's the nature of a fast paced, competitive, and metric driven environment. But, none come close to CNH in this respect. Perhaps, it's because none of the management team, with high turnover, that I worked with had ever worked for a company that was well run and successful in its day to day operations. At CNH it is the norm (not plant location specific) for managers at all levels to treat their subordinates and hourly employees with contempt, constant abuse, lies, unrealistic expectations, and constant threats of termination. The performance review process is laughable. It is a forced distribution method that does not have any true impact on an employee's career, and completely subjective based upon political correctness rather than performance. It does not impact raises, because those DO NOT happen. In 7+ years, none of the salaried workforce received a raise of any kind unless it was associated with a promotion. Of course, most positions are filled from outside rather than promoting from within. In addition to the constant abuse and threats, the hours and workloads are not commensurate with compensation or position. An average 8 hour day has 12 hours worth of expected output, usually above and beyond the duties associated with their position. Don't expect any overtime pay, but do expectmore... to have your job threatened if the smallest item isn't completed. (These statements are based on an analysis of several salaried positions from supervisor to operations manager.) World Class Manufacturing is the company's choice for lean methodology. It is used primarily as a big stick to beat up hourly and salaried employees without any support or proper training. Additionally, it is the corporate dog and pony show comprised of falsified data and extraordinary expense immediately prior to audits to make plants "look" like the principles are practiced daily. Safety is more about documentation and CYA for the company than for the protection and well being of the employees. For instance, machines were/are randomly, very quickly, and erratically moving and spinning whether or not an operator was using the drive controls. All of the expected meetings and failure mode analysis reviews were well documented every time an incident occurred. But, none of the corrective and protective actions identified were implemented. The safety manager initially stated he would insist that production of the machines in question would be stopped until a resolution was found. After a closed meeting with the plant manager and others via conference call, his "viewpoint" changed and production continued. This put employees, contractors, and customers at risk of serious injury or death on a daily basis. This problem has been ongoing for over 6 months and no resolution has been found yet. Random shutdowns and overproduction mandates occurred frequently without any obvious reason or logical explanation. CNH also allows itself to be held captive by its supply chain, and fails to implement any chargeback or quality consistency requirements. The plant absorbs the costs and uses that as yet another reason to beat down the manufacturing departments who have to absorb the scrap and labor costs associated with quality problems. If you have a choice, avoid CNH at all costs. If you do accept employment with them you will regret it almost immediately and you can plan on enduring unheard of stress levels while you age 5 years for every year you work there. If you have any integrity at all this will be a very painful company to work for.less
Decent compensation and benefits package. 401k match and annual contribution
Everything else. Unless you are a masochist without a family or any values or integrity.
