    Pros

    Well established and respected company in its fields. Very good benefits and career advancement potential, coupled with down to earth people and open door policy at all levels make it one of the better places I've worked at.

    Cons

    Not a big brand recognition outside of its industries. Grace has been in Chapter 11 for 7 years, not due to financial distress, but to protect itself from asbestos liability. Much of the newer Sr Leadership was bred at General Electric, bringing in too much short term P&L focus for a company that works in long industry cycles.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get a long term strategy in place. Focus more on leadership and a vision and less on month to month P&L management.
