    I have been working at Jacuzzi Brands full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Fairly secure job, since they laid off too many people back in 2008 and refuse to hire any more to cover the workload from recovered sales. HR department is too afraid to fire anyone even if they are bad at their job because they don't want to get sued. Most of the dealer network is friendly and nice to talk to. Some fairly talented people with a lot of product knowledge.

    Cons

    Utter lack of compensation to employees even after years of service. Pay is below the minimum accepted for job titles pretty much across the board (except for upper management, of course). HR department is too afraid to fire anyone even if they are bad at their job because they don't want to get sued. Use of temp labor in Mexico production facility is a joke and product quality has suffered greatly in recent years. Focus of the company changes on an hourly basis, depending on who is currently barking the loudest. Management ignores big issues like product quality and employee dissatisfaction to focus on inane details like conflicts scheduling the conference room and making sure people clean their desks. Too many chiefs, not enough Indians. Constantly hiring executives, but no workers. Executives in charge have no knowledge of the industry and seem to have only rudimentary skills at running a business.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of some of the high level marketing executives (there are more of them than total people in my department) and VPs of something or other and get some boots on the ground employees to decrease individual workload and increase customer service quality through personal interaction. STOP BUILDING IN MEXICO. Period. The cost of sending employees back and forth, replacing and retraining workers, warranty returns, and reduction in word of mouth sales referrals more than offsets any labor cost savings. The best choice in components isn't always the cheapest - Sometimes saving .$30 per unit is not worth sacrificing the reliability of the parts. You are losing all your long term employees with product knowledge for one simple reason: pay. Pay them more, or they will leave and go somewhere that will and take their industry knowledge with them to help your competitors. As one of the "old guard," I know what this place was like back when Jonathan Clark ran the show. I wish we could go back to the way this company was in those days.
