    Pros

    Focus on details, everyone knows their business and drives for results. No micro management and ability to run department as necessary to support business.

    Cons

    High turn over, some departments rule through fear and have a "burn them and turn them" type attitude

    Advice to Management

    Less internal conflict and more focus on the consumer. Great place for an employee to grow/develop but learn to retain the talent.

    Pros

    They allow you to field test units that you can keep afterwards. The pay is decent and they acknowledge degrees.

    Cons

    The atmosphere is extremely corporate, and they have a tendency to micro manage. I worked in Springfield's plant, and it was extremely male-dominated in management with a tendency to lean towards prejudice.

    Advice to Management

    Allow employees to work without looking over their shoulders. And encourage advancements. No one likes working for companies with glass ceilings.


  6. As a salesman for this company I found lack of leadership and politics that interfered with the job at had.

    Pros

    Great products that are easy to sell. Pay for outside salespeople is all over the board. Field sales management use promotional funds for inappropriate things like multiple sporting events for family members friends etc Expense accounts are miss used (buying coffee etc at staples) for family needs and have very little checks and balances. Lots of ways to save jobs and money just by getting control of these funds. I loved Electrolux just some very dishonest people that need adjustments.

    Cons

    See above comments. Make sure you get in the right department and check out tour supervisor befroe making a move. Lots of incompetent people in places of importance. Lost $$ first 1/4

    Pros

    Good people hired........but they either do not stay....great fishing pool for recruiters........or are fired without feedback

    Cons

    good people leave quickly or are fired quickly......poor leadership at the top two levels and sorry to say in all areas.

    Advice to Management

    Manage people better...stop with the excuses.......soo many leaders have left or fired.....it would be beneficial to review the ones that did not leave......see what their people say about their leadership abilities......if this was read....they would not be there either. Quality......needs focus vs accepting it.......

    Pros

    The company is growing fast, haDiversity of peoples a truly global presence and understands the strategic direction of its market. Diversity of people and culture are well managed and used as a competitive factor.

    Cons

    Company has a complex organization chart, which can be really challenging for professionals who need a more straight line of command. The competition in the sector is furious and bloody. The company has had some difficulties to keep its profit targets.
