good environment, excellent coworkers
Shipping and Receiving Clerk (Former Employee) –  Delavan, WIFebruary 22, 2015
8 to 12 hour days
learned to be more self sufficient on finding work
management was horrible in terms of following through with promises such as advancement and more work load.

the most enjoyable part of the jobs was the compensation and time off.

Buyer/Planner (Current Employee) –  Rochester, NYMarch 7, 2013
The day to day workers are fantastic. They are tireless and really care about turning out a good product. The corporate management only cares about dollars and looking good "on the (Wall) Street" They do not care about the work force at all. They have cut employee benefits so much, most employees count on their spouses' benefits.
Pros
great non-management employess
Cons
management lacks focus

Productive and friendly environment with Employee Appreciation Days!
Scanning Clerk (Former Employee) –  Rochester, NYNovember 16, 2015
I was responsible for producing legible digital copies of documents for retention purposes. I learned how to scan and organize hard copy documents and transfer them into various local, network and cloud storage devices. Management was always on-site to help with any concerns or questions and my co-workers demonstrated awesome team spirit! The hardest part of the job was departing from my new friends/family. The most enjoyable was gaining a new skill, employee recognition (food) and the experience of being part of a great company!
Pros
Working for an outstanding company and Employee Recognition!!!
Cons
Temp to hire

Like all jobs you must stay very alert while working in any department within SPX. There has been mistakes made by several employees either not focusing on the job or not following correct job procedures.

Work Work Work - Competitive company somewhat mix between startup and fortune 500
Senior Project Manager (Current Employee) –  Overland Park, KSJanuary 31, 2014
Overall a good place to work if you like to work. There are many, many, many experienced people at different levels in the company - 30 to 40 years of experience. They are extremely passionate about the products, but are somewhat disillusioned by the corporate nature of the organization. They started working when it was a single owner and entrepreneurial culture.

The leadership has been changing constantly at the business unit level leading to many different programs. The current leadership is well liked in the US and extremely aggressive. If you are a go-getter, you have oportunity to showcase your talents.

Like every other company, there is no onboarding time, no training time, just jump and swim. I enjoy working for this company, especially my management team all the way to segment VP.

Unique private studio offering group exercise classes.
Pilates Instructor (Former Employee) –  Chandler, AZMarch 22, 2015
I would open the studio and prepare for the classes with sound and exercise equipment assessments, and check in attending clients prior to the start of class. I typically guide a group of 8 to 11 customers through an intensive 50 minute pilates class paying close attention to the form and safety of attending members. Instructors have very minimal class interaction with coworkers or management outside of scheduled team meetings but the culture of the business was cohesive and friendly.
Pros
instructors are encouraged to be creative in their workouts
