    I have been working at Goss International full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    - Positive and professional coworkers
    - International organization
    - Diversity- quite a few employees from Europe, Central/South America, and Asia Pacific
    - Summer hours-offered, but not to all departments and under the purview of the department manager
    - R&D, new product development
    - Many senior employees with great corporate memory and/or industry experience to share
    - LEAN management training in process (change is good but....)

    Cons

    - LEAN management training in process (...but nevertheless challenging to administer. Remember the book, Who Moved My Cheese?)
    - Sometimes the decision making is slow, but more often than not in a large organization that is also true.
    - Industry shrinkage has presented challenges to the organization

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - evaluate customer and industry needs, and adjust product lines and services accordingly
    - design mentoring program to further develop less experienced employees
    - create change buy-in for the current employees that result from LEAN training/Kaizen events
