    I worked at Benjamin Moore full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits, competitive compensation and incentive .

    Cons

    Ever changing corporate culture over the last two decades. HR calling the shots, letting good people go for the wrong reasons and letting the weak and corrupt remain.

    I have been working at Benjamin Moore full-time

    Pros

    Excellent position. Report directly to the CIO. Tremendous career advancement. CAO has approved this short-term position. Job responsibilities: good at taking blame from PMO office, CIO, and CAO. Able to accept failure even though its not your fault. Good at working late hours with no respect. OK with no paid time off.

    Cons

    CIO created position for another excuse to save his job.

    Advice to Management

    Great job. The whole company knows the truth now, including the CEO. How come the CIO can't perform the ERP directors job? Just a big mess with the wrong people in charge. Maybe Zero-based budgeting will hide the true cost overruns on this project lol.

    Pros

    Wonderful people work in production. I have made some amazing friends over the years here. Respectable pay Pretty decent benefits Nice Facility Benjamin Moore is a well respected legendary company that people are proud to work for. It feels good to say that I've made a career working here.

    Cons

    If we had a competent and personable leader at the top of this plant we would have most everything we need. Seriously, all of the other issues are minor by comparison. Collectively we can fix everything else as a group. This is the one thing we can't change ourselves which is holding us back. If I had to identify a second most urgent issue it would be safety. The numbers don't truly represent how many close calls we have. But again, this goes back to leadership at the top. This is constructive criticism. Every employee in America wants a safe environment to work in with a personable and competent leader.

    Advice to Management

    The hardest part of building any organization is finding good people. We have an army of amazing people at this plant in Pell City. Get us a new coach and watch this plant soar! The talent is in place

    Pros

    Great insight and critique. Can offer great constructive criticism to evolve one's work and create an overall better product. Not much to complain.

    Cons

    Short and narrow career growth opportunities. Too much politics can also be a common theme in this company. It's rare to see any promotions.

    Advice to Management

    Figure out a way to retain people long term. By showing long term opportunities are available you will encourage people to stick around beyond two years.

    Pros

    The free lunches, yes that is about that.

    Cons

    No one wants to be accountable for anything so the fingers are always pointed. Tons of new incompetent outsourcing which just leads to more work. New management teams are all in the same sack pushing everyone around. And forcing blame unto others when they are at fault.

    Advice to Management

    Wake up, seriously.

    Pros

    Free lunch, good products and loyal customer base.

    Cons

    We're no longer known as a national company, we're the equivalent of a regional grinder. Since we lack solid leadership, it takes forever to make a decision and even longer to act on it. Even with the massive increase in paid media, our Marketing has been ineffective at best, marking the beginning of the end. Our CMO seems nice enough, but comes across as very reclusive, indecisive and overmatched. We're all praying that our new VP can help lead us out of the Abyss.

    Advice to Management

    New CMO has had absolutely no impact whatsoever. Let's just say nobody ever sees him or his executive cronies who are locked away in their ivory dungeon. How about providing guidance or a semblance of leadership once in a while? Marketing at a company like this shouldn't be this difficult. For example, have you looked at our website? It's like a kid in middle school designed it. Please help before our market share erodes even further.
