Get your feet wet and get out(Plant manufacturing engineer)
Manufacturing Engineer (welding) (Current Employee) – New Holland, PA – June 25, 2017
Not a bad place to start an engineering career. Engineering in the plant is very fast paced and will keep you busy all day. It's often hard to find down time to take care of "essential job functions" while the plant is running. This almost always leads to working extra hours without pay(salary).
Salary employs don't get the respect they deserve and basic amenity such as lunch rooms and break areas are for hourly employees. So many of us eat lunch in our cars so we're not bothered during our short 30 min lunch break...
Current management team seems to be more focused on meeting WCM objectives rather than developing solid process to actually improve manufacturing. Current engineering team in the plant has little experience, most less then 3 years(myself included) which makes it very difficult to learn the proper way of doing things and makes it nearly impossible to change current procedures.
Turn over rate at this place is ridiculous. Across the board hourly and salary employees seem to change job functions at the drop of a hat. Engineers are dropped into new rolls and expected to preform them without hesitation with no company sponsored training.
Overall the work is very demanding and manufacturing engineers in the plant are given ton of responsibility. The problem is you have to spend 5-7+ years working a nearly endless gantlet of engineering changes, process changes, employee turnovers, man power adjustments, and managerial changes before you will get a promotion or a raise.
Great people to work with especially Green Bay Packer fans

Review daily maintenace for the database servers. New additional monitoring needed for database data and log space. Very cooperative and fair management. Always complimentry. Working from home allowed me interact with all types of people at all times of the day and learn from there support tasks and troubleshooting. Great using gotomeeting allowed full interaction world wide with entire group of 30 + on a daily/weekly basis. Coordination between the different geographical locations for scheduling tasks. Meeting people from all different cultures and backgrounds and know that we all can work as one unit when needed.

CNC Machinist (Former Employee) – Springfield, MO – June 20, 2017
it is a decent place to work. the other benefits are good with a little below average pay. I was not in agreement with management with how they ran the company. the people I worked with on the floor was good peope.
Warehouse Associate (Former Employee) – Lebanon, IN – June 14, 2017
I've now worked at cnh two separate times. The first time from may 2014- January 2015 and I loved it. The most hours I worked a day was 10 which isn't bad. I knew at the beginning of the week if I had to work a Saturday. If the weather was hot we had longer breaks and we're given ice cream and popsicles. Our managers were awesome and we were a close crew which is why I saw no problem in going back. I started back January 2017 and last night was my last night. We were working 12 hour days with a mandatory 8 hour shift on Saturday. It's ridiculously hot and we were only offered water. The management is awful, there is no communication with the employees. It's near impossible to move up. There's no appreciation for the employees. No matter how well you're doing you're always told to work harder and faster. The turn over rate is insane and we were severely short staffed. All in all in was a horrible experience. This job would be good for someone with no life and no family.
Welder (Former Employee) – Burlington, IA – June 14, 2017
Good place as far as benefits. Needs improvements through management and getting things fixed as far as fixtures and other equipment. Management also needed to do more at recognizing people who would get their work done and done right.
Packaging (Former Employee) – Lebanon, IN – April 21, 2017
I loved the job at cnh, it was a great place. Enjoyed working there just had some problems with a few employees wish i didnt. Learned new things every day. I was a packager then moved to allo then moved to auto bag then was a qc for a few. Loved learning new jobs everyday.
Design Engineer (Current Employee) – Burr Ridge, IL – April 18, 2017
Long hours and no raises. PLM process is a joke and upper management refuses to change it. No teamwork because everyone is trying to avoid having "their turn." was here for 5 years doing same thing and was told it was my turn to be on the bottom. Make sure if you interview you talk with not only the recruiters and HR but ask the manager about the process.
Buyer (Current Employee) – Burr Ridge, IL – April 17, 2017
They may start you off at desired pay, but don't expect a pay raise ever as it is not their policy to do so. 401K is best in industry the only plus at CNH. Bonuses are pretty weak for this industry. Forced ranking system to evaluate employees, so out of 20 exceptional employees in your group, 3 will be considered good, 14 average, and 3 poor, yes you will be considered a poor employee even if it's not true. Which negatively affect your small bonus, even if it's not true and you will get some unfounded excuse as to why....they will blow the smoke right up your rear end. Been here for approx. 7 years and will be leaving very soon. Sounds like multiple other employee are planning the same. So, if you would like to start your career at CNH opening are always available due to high turnover and management is okay with that. Shows you how little they value their employees.
Technical Writer II (Former Employee) – New Holland, PA – April 5, 2017
CNH used to be a fun place to work. Now they are focused on bottom line numbers with little regard for employee satisfaction. CNH is almost obsessed with promoting their wellness program. This might look good but extra rewards are given to those overweight who are working to lose weight. This short changes those of us already in shape and at the proper weight.
Production Worker (Former Employee) – Burlington, IA – April 2, 2017
If you don't mind working for a company where there is no Union support, CO workers have absolutely no respect for you, your always walking a thin line and never know if your working a full day or overtime or weekends till last minute, and try not to get hurt that takes forever to get taken care of.
Manufacturing Engineer (Former Employee) – Goodfield, IL – March 29, 2017
A successful employee must embrace the culture of WCM (World Class Manufacturing) practices. Job reviews will be centered around submitted documentation showing the work spent on WCM. MI (Manufacturing Index) is used to gage the health of the manufacturing floor. If you love paperwork on steroids this is the place to work.
Project Manager II (Former Employee) – Burlington, IA – March 22, 2017
CNH does not value employees, advancement and opportunities are non-existent. My position was deleted within 4 months of being hired. In 4 years went through 4 re-organizations. Culture is resistant to change, not welcoming to new hires. Not a good company to work for.
Quality Inspector / Lead (Former Employee) – Lebanon, IN – March 16, 2017
I worked at CNH for 12 years. I started in the distribution center as a picker and ended up in the receiving materials center as an Inspector. A typical day was going in and inspecting material to ensure it was conformant to CNH standards and to help answer questions from packagers and Supervisors. I learned how to read blue prints and how to use inspection tools which was very interesting to say the least. I couldn't have asked for a better Supervisor, OPS manager and head of QC NA. It was a great environment to work in and everyone worked together as a Team! The hardest part of the job was when one would be assigned the "On Call" for the day. Sometimes it seemed that there wasn't enough time in the day to get everything done. The most enjoyable part of my job was that I absolutely loved what I did! Great team and management. The best work environment I've ever experienced!
Great incentives to boost moral and work ethics. The company is very genourous during the holidays.
Web Specialist Contractor (Current Employee) – Racine, WI – March 7, 2017
I always looked forward to work day knowing that communication would be capable across all levels of management including internationally. The most enjoyable part of the job was getting the opportunity to take part in other sections of internal communications and being able to contribute to those projects.
