    Pros

    Great opportunity for growth if you are willing to move around the world. Great products to enjoy through the Brand Ambassador Program.

    Cons

    It's a large company, and as much as the company tries to move fast, it is slow to change in areas where change is needed. There is also a mixed bag when it comes to senior leadership - some fantastic leaders, and some who are only around because they've been around forever and have been passed around rather than cut from the team.

    Advice to Management

    Never under estimate the impact that a clearly defined mission with specific goals can make on performance. It is imperative that individuals understand what they can do to impact profitability.

    Pros

    Flexibility, benefits, and it's a fun product to sell so you get to have a lot of fun!

    Cons

    Working for such a large company and leader in their category sometimes makes it hard to adapt quickly to the changing consumer and market.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of as much red tape as you can and enable employees to make decisions to impact the marketplace and consumer more quickly.

    Pros

    The brands are great and it's an exciting, fast paced environment.

    Cons

    Frequent reorganizations and management changes, which has resulted in a lot of turnover. Outsourcing of some important functions has created difficulties.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure the people in charge of a specific function know the day to day work of everyone on the team. Solicit input before making big changes

    Pros

    Great brands, cool atmosphere, good pay, most people truly care about the company and work their hardest

    Cons

    Reorganization after reorganization. Management changes galore. Important to tow the party line and not ruffle anyones feathers as it may give off the wrong perception. People are afraid to give their opinions and are often held accountable for other peoples decisions.

    Advice to Management

    Tell the truth, accept the facts, build some stability in a vision, plan and execution approach.

    Pros

    Prestigious brands, work life balance, respect of diversity

    Cons

    Values are not lived as consistently as they used to. To progress in the company sponsors and friends are more important than talent.

    Advice to Management

    Take better care of talent
