    I worked at Bureau Veritas North America full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Most existing employees are supportive and attempt to work within the environment. Lots of good ideas and a willingness to support cross-functional teams. New hire local management doing the best they can in the circumstances.

    Cons

    Little or no market strategy, other than "Do what you have been doing, but do more." This is a problem as the current market is drying up and there appears to be no viable business driver to improve that position. Marketing is nearly non-existent. What little there is proves to be ineffective.

    Sales have fallen dramatically.

    Pressure from NA corporate is a quarterly badgering session. Wasn't there long enough to know the history so perhaps corporate knew they were facing a growing revenue problem for some time but were unable to arrest the bleeding. Regardless, from my perspective timeline corporate management and local management knew they had a problem but had no coherent strategy to deal with it. Hiring and firing salespeople may look like you are taking action but serves no organic value without a viable market strategy and if management cannot, or will not, invest in market support.

    Local sales management is poor and ineffective; essentially a no-show. They don't have the tools to lead or the time to do so as they need to meet their nut as well. Clearly, a lack of sales performance should produce only one result. HOWEVER, it would be much more effective to invest early in your market, and then hire selectively, than to throw a bunch of spaghetti on a wall hoping some of it will stick.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    This is for NA corporate management: Move back to France. In the absence of this, consider: Setting realistic performance and growth goals based on current market penetration; If you need to show immediate growth numbers try responding to some RFP's; If your plan is to sell to Utilities try to figure out WHAT you want to sell first, develop a market penetration strategy, spend a little on marketing, THEN hire; It's called a SWOT analysis - look it up.
