    Who is the captain of the sinking ship?

    AREA SALES MANAGER (Current Employee) Houston, TX (US)

    ProsFantastic products with some truly devoted employees.

    ConsSPX has dismantled a company that had a bright future. No clear direction from upper management with zero accountability.

    Advice to Senior ManagementFire the captain (s) get people in there that will lead and fix the ship. ClydeUnion was a fantastic place to work... Sad to see SPX get let down the path by VP's who do not seem to care about the future of the company.

    A very good workplace a lot of work and a lot to learn

    Automation Engineer (Former Employee) Dubai (United Arab Emirates)

    ProsGood and reliable salary, good allowances, high quality working culture. People can learn how to work in a global multicultural company. Reliable business big market share.

    ConsThe usual issues that are present in all public american companies. No promotion only on the sales line, engineering people will be never promoted only if someone leaves the company. They do not invest in persons (training, carrier etc.), they politics is to keep people in dark regarding the plans, only very little information is given to the employees, people don't understand why things happen most of the cases.

    Advice to Senior ManagementSPX should use the power of being global and retain talents by moving them around in the world if there is no opportunity at one location. I am sure a lot of people leave SPX because they get no support from the company to step forward. The only area where people can step forward is sales.
