    Excellent corporate culture, experience will differ by business unit and division

    Marketing Director (Current Employee)

    ProsMarket leader in the businesses in which they participate.
    Focus on creating value for customers and investors -- through revenue growth and cost containment.
    Consistent corporate culture due to continuity of leadership over the last 50 years (3 CEOs).
    Data-driven approach minimizes politics, at least as much as can be expected.

    ConsCulture does differ by business unit and division. Your experience in one location can be drastically different from another.
    Performance evaluation process is weak.

    Advice to Senior ManagementMove faster on acquisition integration. Stamp out politics at the divisional level to reflect the culture at the corporate level.

    Great place to start, but that's about it

    Marketing Department (Current Employee) Ocala, FL

    Pros- Owned by Emerson Electric, which helps with training and has a regimented process, also ensures you get your paycheck every month.
    -Great place to start, because of the different types of people and responsibilities of each employee.
    - Extremely nice people to work with and for, everyone is friendly and outgoing.
    - With-in the past year, they have hired more than 10 people for various positions, that are under the age of 35, hopefully this helps to foster in the next-generation for ClosetMaid.

    Cons- Never any interaction or team building within and outside of different departments.
    - Hard to grow into a new position as an employee.
    - Some people have a job for little to no reason in some management positions.
    - The executive staff has extremely outdated skills and management techniques, little to no computer knowledge, does not understand the next generation of worker, and are over compensated for only minor success.
    - Outdated and cramped cubicles, no windows or natural light, stinky moldy carpet, dirty and dull wall colors.
    - No interactive work spaces or places to have fun or refreshing meetings.
    - Not an inspiring place to be an employee.

    Advice to Senior Management- Better understanding of the emerging trends in how a workplace functions.
    - Ability to work from home via conference calls and video calls certain days.
    - Focus on getting people in different groups to interact with each other, after working here for years, I still only know half the people in the building.
    - Update the building and space to foster interactivity with employees
    - Younger employees have less a likelihood to stay with the company because of the work environment and location of the headquarters, being in Florida only goes so far for so long.
    - Focus more on employee satisfaction, and creating a work environment that makes people want to be an employee, not dread it.
