Bad morale at Tulsa office!

Current Employee - Office in Tulsa, OK (US)

I have been working at SPX full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Good 401k plan. Nice coworkers.

Cons

At Tulsa the pay is low and people are constantly getting fired. Those that are still there are looking for another job where they can feel good about their employer. The president doesn't have a clue how to run a company. There is no opportunity to move up, you might make a lateral move but that is it.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Tulsa is always losing money and if you want to change that, start at the top. Put someone in that knows how to run a company and treat employees with respect.

    I worked at SPX full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Competitive compensation, site management recognizes that there are organizational deficiencies, solid backlog position for at least a year (or more). Building a pool of excellent staff & mid-level management. This will be a great place for someone who has a strong desire to experience grass-roots organizational change in a small-ish group within a large corporation.

    Cons

    The organizational deficiencies are crippling, management is unable to build or articulate a concensus roadmap to improvement (I believe that they are moving in the right direction, but too slowly to impact 2012 & perhaps 2013). The top-level corporate culture (as stated & communicated from Charlotte) is definitely good & noteworthy, but it has not yet taken root in Houston.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do not be afraid of or overly cautious about change; the Houston facility has fantastic potential that can be unlocked with a plan & commitment from management that invites employee participation & input. There is a wealth of knowledge & experience that needs to be transferred from the individual level to the institutional level & it will not happen without more commitment from the top. Be more concerned with building a sustainable set of processes that will allow visibility into next year than with the next month of shipments; the month is important, but at what cost?
