    Pros

    Laird is filled with bright and good people at many levels. This makes for a challenging and fast-paced environment, as should be expected with a company focused on the electronics market. In several product segments, Laird is a clear leader.

    Current senior management is working hard to create “One Laird” to address the challenges inherent in a business that is the result of many acquisitions over the years and the CEO is not only filled with positive energy, but “gets it”. The direction is good, albeit filled with challenges and change. For those who enjoy a fast-paced business environment, this can be a good company to work for. For those who prefer less change or a less geographically distributed organization, Laird might be a bit of a challenge.

    Cons

    The current Laird has been built through a process of acquiring smaller companies around the world over the past 10+ years and the result is a combination of businesses with a relatively large degree of product and customer diversity. This, along with frequent (annual, at least bi-annual) reorganizations of fairly significant magnitude – including/especially at higher organization levels – creates an atmosphere that is best challenging, somewhat political in nature, and always difficult given the variety of global locations, variety of products offered, and the pace of continual change.

    The emphasis on company stock price is a downside of a global, public, company but this is probably an aspect that every public company faces and is, regardless, an important criterion for public companies these days.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Laird needs to continue to seek to combine the energy, focus, and knowledge of the once smaller companies with the size and global scope of the greater company to continue forward. The “One Laird” initiative is positive and I hope the company can carry it through in the direction sought by senior management, while leveraging the passion and understanding held by those who remain from the acquired companies.
