    vp - management

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsManagement has a solid direction and is following it
    Leadership won't suffer fools, takes action
    Most of the dead weight is cleaned out
    Great business model, ready to turn the corner and do great things unencumbered by legacy red tape at the mid levels
    Great C level folks in place now ready to do great things

    ConsSome mid to low level people and teams are still not getting it
    Painful decisions are still probably necessary with regard to more change
    Great ideas around new products may take some time
    Still need to cut SG&A in the right places

    Advice to Senior ManagementIts obvious how hard you are working and that your vision is going to work, so stay the course.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Advice to Senior ManagementFocus on core competencies

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
