    Pros

    120 year old company with world class products ..gives a sense of pride

    Cons

    Fats accumulated at the top level with false ego..seniors who were the pillers are leaving the organisation..still continues all unethical practice's under the table,even with the knowledge of top management..

    Advice to Management

    Growth should be shown by increasing the volume sales through ethical ways, not by deducting the poor field managers expense (T.B.M's)..

    Pros

    Global Company with new markets and areas of business being introduced regularly. Lots of change and opportunities to learn new things.

    Cons

    Little to no work/life balance. Senior Management doesn't always recognize the right individuals for contributions.

    Advice to Management

    Learn to gather performance feedback from those who worked closely with the employee. Work to teach and foster growth rather than constrict employees to one area of focus.

    Pros

    Great products. Sales staff are great and easy to work with. Many training opportunities from within. Moving towards a more open-minded company although this will take some time.

    Cons

    Corporate politics and potential for upward mobility. Focus on hiring from outside and do not promote from within as much as they should. Very male-dominated environment.

    Advice to Management

    Promote from within and understand the needs of your employees. Promote high performers with potential. Understand customer's perception of the company and work to improve it.

    Pros

    Good salary, benefits, well-known name.
    Solid performance, stable if moderate growth.
    Cost of living north of Chicago is modest, a good place to raise a family.

    Cons

    Very large organization can make it hard to be recognized for contributions.
    Conglomerate business model is detracting from some traditional values of the company.

    Advice to Management

    You won't be able to buy all of the innovation for the future product pipeline. Invest in organic growth.
