    I worked at Tennant

    Pros

    Solid vision, executes on strategy. Great products and very passionate sales force. Incredible market share and brand recognition.

    Cons

    To be fair, it's been awhile since I was there. But there are always poor managers in every company at one time or other. I encountered my share of those.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Some key people at higher positions have blocked current and former employees from taking higher positions due to them not sharing the same lifestyle.
