    Pros

    Good opportunities at any job function and plenty of other opportunities to move to other jobs or functions within the company.

    Cons

    Its a big company, so sometimes it slow and tedious to work through the red tape to meet goals and objectives,

    Advice to Management

    My advice to management is to keep on doing what you are doing as far as cost containment and introduction of new products.

    Pros

    Plenty of opportunities for advancement and opportunities to learn and grow no matter what position or level of experience is.

    Cons

    Since it is a very large company, it's possible to get lost in the shuffle so to speak. The personal touch is sometimes missing but being anonymous is not always a bad thing.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the employees, especially the lowest level ones. They are the ones doing the work and will have the best ideas on how to do it and do it even better.

    Pros

    The benefits are good. It is nice having a cafe so you do not need to bring lunch and the food is good.

    Cons

    They could have a better training program instead of making people figure stuff out on there own.

    Pros

    Decent benefits, very good bonus in strong years. The company has improved their communications to the employees, showing strong growth in the Fond du Lac area.

    Cons

    Engineering department is severely restrained in upward mobility, not too much help in career development. HR department is terrible, lost key personnel during the recession and replacements are barely adequate.

    Pros

    Interesting and widely varied work on a complete consumer product. Many technical challenges and capable tools to take them on. This is a very interesting job.

    Cons

    Business cycles cause occasional layoffs. Management has made changes to mitigate this to some degree by using contract workers in busy times.

    Advice to Management

    Management has done a fantastic job of managing the 2008 down turn in business. They concentrated on cash flow and inventory management with excellent success.
