Bad Parent Company Tone at the Top
Finance Dept., Auburn Hills, MI - March 17, 2013
This company was probably once a great employer. However, the parent company, Dover Corporation, is a private eguity holding company that treats their subsidiary companies like garbage. The Finance Dept. there works too long of hours with no adequate staffing and with no training opportunities for enhancing skills. Most of the staff level employees are good people, but Management constrains their growth by continual cost cutting, cost cutting, cost cutting to the point were the company cannot ever get its processes optimized with their low level of staffing. Certain levels of management office holders (do-nothings) were unnecessary when they could use more staffers to actually do the work instead.
