    Pros

    Very Good Products and Strong Brands. Old employees are very good. Very Friendly and Helpful

    New Employees and Senior Management pathetic. Have literally taken the company to DOGS. Lots of Politics and lack of communication leading to downfall of the group.

    Advice to Management

    Wake up.. listen to your old employees and the people who have left the company in the last 5 years to really understand what is wrong with your company.

    I worked at ARC International full-time

    Pros

    Overall nice environment and culture Strong willingness to develop the business Friendly working atmosphere

    Cons

    Lack of commercial focus; dispersion of efforts by trying to be present in so many countries with too many product ranges with too little resources to support sales. Silo style of working with somehow limited natural information flow People cover-up themselves by using too much the e-mail (to keep a record) Goods availability for Sales people is difficult to understand The company is under a restructuration process; the next 2 years will be though

    Advice to Management

    More empowerment to Middle-Management Talk and listen to Middle-Management - Learn from them! More Marketing spending - Stop to blindly "push" sales
