I worked at Milacron (More than a year)
Good products, especially the Japanese Roboshot presses. Much experience and long term employees also to assist. Service team does a great job supporting sales team.
Commission structure is bizarre. Need to eliminate draw structure of it and pay based on sales from day 1. Bloated middle management staff not really adding anything to the bottom line.
Advice to Management
Get back to focusing on personal side of sales. Stop over analyzing numbers. Focus on core competency. You don't have to try and own the market for each discipline. Be great at a few things rather than average at all things.

The walk-through of the plant is a definite eye opening experience. You naturally gain a realization that management are real people that support (rather than "supervise"). The products, manufacturing process (German Based OEM), and possibilities (anything plastic) sells the company. Also, management clearly knows what they are looking for... hope this helps
