    Employment at HB Fuller Construction Products

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at H.B. Fuller full-time

    Pros

    Company pays well. They stick by their philanthropist ideals by donating time and money to different organizations.

    Cons

    Makes changes without thinking them through - how it will effect others in the company. They talk about safety and how important it is to them but if you get hurt, they make up some excuse not to pay or report it to Workmans Comp. They dont want any injuries going on record. They talk about being "green" and dont even have a recycling program established.

    Management doesn't care about people.

    I have been working at H.B. Fuller full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Benefits are really the only benefit.

    Cons

    Management knows things are bad but keeps saying things will get better. They don't care at all about people tbeing being stressed out. Askng for help with issues beyond our control is like talking to a wall.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop having meetings and actually DO something. Support people who work for you. Replace management at this location of the company with people who know how to run a company.

    I have been working at H.B. Fuller full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Pay above average after you get a few years in, decent benefits, very strong company in the adhesive industry.

    Cons

    Depressing atmosphere, poor comrodery among workers, poor comunication, poor training ,poor local management, poor working conditions (heat, dust, noise, est) poor job staffing shifts, (work to lean). Old technology, old worn out equipment, you name it!!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take better care of your people, like Tony Anderson did. Reinvest in the plants, get them up to date, stop jacking people around, give them their promotion when due.

    I have been working at H.B. Fuller

    Pros

    Financial results great for 2009. Senior Leadership finally stabilized. Decent growth trends. Good Talent Acquisition in last 18 months.

    Cons

    TOO LEAN in human capital and investment in the Supply Chain infrastructure; lack of people, diverse talent and innovation in plants, and raw material sourcing. No investment for the future to support sales. No plan for raw materials; spot buying is unreliable and costly long-term.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The so-called turn-around will be short lived beginning to surface in 2010. No investment in knowledgeable people, capital equipment, and a strategy beyond Sales will lead to sub-optimal performance very shortly.

    I have been working at H.B. Fuller

    Pros

    Solid company. Average salaries. Being a small company and lean you get exposed to senior management levels fairly easy and quickly.

    Cons

    Little advancement opportunities. Career development is non-existing

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get serious on making career development a reality rather than just empty words
