SPX - low stress and low pay in a friendly environment

Technical Editor (Current Employee)
Exton, PA (US)

I have been working at SPX

ProsLow-stress environment, small office, friendly co-workers. Decent office environment.

ConsAt SPX there is very low pay - muchlower than the industry standard. It's a former mom and pop shop, with HR offices in the midwest, where pay scales are lower than the east coast. There is little room for growth in small offices. And local management tends to give supervisor (jokingly referred to as "team leader") authority to the unskilled and uneducated folks despite clear and repeated indications of low intelligence and incompetence. Being friendly is more valued than being skilled and a hard worker.

Advice to Senior ManagementPromote the hard workers rather than the popular, extra-friendly and uneducated heavy-lifting types. Knowledge and ability goes a lot farther than simple number of years of service.

Accountability is paramount

Director (Former Employee)
Allen Park, MI (US)

I worked at SPX


Pros: Flexibility to do your own thing but held accountable for the results. This is a very internationally diverse organization. If you are talented… Cons: SPX was a very numbers oriented culture - I am not sure whether that is still the case with the current senior management in place.… Advice to Senior Management: Frequent and accurate communication from the top will engage employees… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More

Tough place to build a career

Finance (Current Employee)
Philadelphia, PA (US)

I have been working at SPX


Pros: The money was good. Other than that, not much good. The management team, from the senior level down was very short sighted… Cons: See above. The short sighted view held by the management team. They would never focus on the future, just on the current quarter,… Advice to Senior Management: Think beyond today. The sun will come up tomorrow. No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
