    Pros

    None!!!! I would never recommend this company to a friend or trusted colleague. Not somewhere that you would want your reputation affected by the poor business environment.

    Cons

    Very insular company. Do not manage the employees, Senior Mgmt. is all about themselves, no career development going on, while sales decrease every year.

    Advice to Management

    Get out of the basement enclave you have made for yourselves and truly understand what is happening in the business, trust that all the employees you have are not the idiots you perceive them to be.

    Pros

    The Pros of this company is the people that are there to make the difference. Like everywhere there are good and bad days, good mostly out weigh the bad. There are many team mates that want you to succeed in this company and are willing to help you in this process.

    Cons

    The pay is not great, it will take about 10 years to hit your mid range on current merit increases. Shifting blame and finger pointing really needs to be addressed. Benefit package is ok but really needs a good look at, also (healthy roads, smokers are penalized hard.)

    Advice to Management

    You are running the show. Take responsibility, Look after your lower end workers, you may see a bigger improvement.

    Pros

    Decent free Lunch , Nice Headquarter Location

    Cons

    There will be a Instant membership granted to you to Pathetic circus of IT Department especially in SAP Implementation team who are bunch of Jokers. They have become a laughing stock for the company . The SAP Project has been elevated to Joker show of big circus which can make people laugh only on cheap stunts. You have to make decision whether you want to be part of bunch of Jokers or do something meaningful elsewhere. Additionally , PMO team and SAP Team does not have any understanding of Three behavior model of Benjamin Moore .PMO Team and Outsourced SAP Team openly confronts & bashes the users and customers to hide their own in-competencies .They have a full backing of IT Management who is virtually disconnected with rest of Benjamin Moore business. You will be risking your career if you decide to join the IT group as it is hot landmine which will explode soon and you will be shattered . The IT Management does not have any sense of hiring right peoples as they always have personal interest ( financial paybacks) rather than company interest to get things done. Stay Away from IT and SAP Team

    Advice to Management

    There is still a time to evaluate IT department and SAP team to check whether they follow three E model of Benjamin Moore. You will need to revamp the whole SAP project and IT Team to deliver right solution to Company.

    Pros

    Financially sound company with decent benefits.

    Cons

    No longer offer a pension and half-dozen pensions on existing employees. Have great market share in some markets but in several major US markets are basically non existent.

    Advice to Management

    Several upper management people should learn the paint business and not pretend to know it.

    Pros

    Reasonable hours; Free lunch if you are a full-time employee.

    Cons

    Promotions/career growth reserved for senior management employees. Company has reasonable hours as there isn't any incentive or motivation to stay past 4 or 5 p.m. Great for people looking to sharpen their skills and then bounce within 1-2 years to a better career opportunity elsewhere. Company's strategy to bring in new talent versus promoting from within will ultimately fail as the revolving doors are lubed and the "new talent" leave for other opportunities elsewhere while the "old talent" were let go and pushed out to vacate spots for the new talent. Workload is distributed among remaining employees that do the work of 3-4 people in exchange for a Brand Ambassador award for excellence.

    Advice to Management

    None that would change anything.
