    Pros

    Trying to be better but seem to be slipping up. Local managers are pretty good but corporate could be lots better HQ in France, a group that seems to have its act together.

    Cons

    Very difficult to get money. Big promises but little action. Lack of focus.

    Pros

    Spent $15 million on new Wauwatosa facility. Hired many new people for these offices. They just need to get some experience.

    Cons

    Management has become set in their ways. They have been around too long and reluctant to change. Often come up with an initiative but never follow through with it. Way to many meetings to discuss internal issues but rarely correct the problem. Many silos and leaky pipes.

    Advice to Management

    Don't just say you want to listen to the customer but actually do it. Create a culture where employees are encouraged to make suggestions.

    Pros

    great benefits and great people, work life balance, not your father's or grandfathers Bostik, long term vision may be questionable and consolidation may continue in the near future

    Cons

    Heavily centralized and overly beauracratic, after the 2009 recession it took too many years for the company to re-establish its identity

    Advice to Management

    listen to divisional leadership. Corporate management isnt the only part of the organization with excellent revenue generation ideas
