    Pros

    Manitou France support for products and training was the best I have seen since the Valtra day's for Finnish Tractors. New CEO and VP of Sales focus on team building will improve working conditions.

    Cons

    Resistance to change from Gehl/Mustang culture

    Pros

    Good insurance benefits- great coverage and low deductible

    Cons

    Management, flexibility, no working from home (even during Covid - parents have to take unpaid time off or reduce salary if kids are in virtual school because of COVID), communication, micromanaging Management makes it very clear they do not care about their employees - they only care about profit and it is very evident in how they treat their employees. Crazy clock watching (doens't matter how early you get there, if you leave 1 min before 5, someone will complain to HR), co-workers try to get each other in trouble (i.e. my manager was on vacation, co-worker was off for 2 days - ON VACATION which was approved by my manager...someone complained to HR saying he was skipping out of work becuase my manager was not there....he was ON VACATION) Very patriarchial, no room for career advancement, awful vacation time, pay is not competitive at all. Mass layoffs are very common - don't see this company lasting more than 1-2 years MAX
