    Pros

    Good people with whom to work. Chance to travel. Working for a European company is interesting. Products are used in interesting ways. Nice physical location.

    Cons

    Working for a European headquartered company (all decisions come from there and sometimes our opinion is not solicited). I worked with just a very few REALLY BAD APPLES - and nothing was done to change their behavior. The cool place to work is too open - very, very, very hard to focus / concentrate. Sometimes too much travel.

    Advice to Management

    Invest more fully in your new businesses. Your expectations are completely unreasonable given that you are penetrating new markets and new distribution channels. Spend money to make money.
