    Pros

    If you like being a second class citizen. Believe that no good ideas come from the US, and you're just hanging on to your career by a thread, this is the place for you.

    Cons

    Spent too much time chasing shadows to put to rest the latest fears of senior management. Saw some great ideas go nowhere because they literally believe the saying...if it ain't dutch it ain't much...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get some self respect and move on to somewhere else where you'll be respected for your contribution.

    Pros

    They have a great benefits package. They have lots of tools in place to help you succeed. They are the largest Coating and Chemical Company in the world.

    Cons

    The leaders of the company do massive emailing to everyone in the company and never get out in the field. It would be more beneficial to get from behind the desk and out into the field. It was formerly known as ICI and they are trying to rebrand with no advertising. This is hard to do without advertising.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to invest in advertising. Also, need to expand who you are going after. Told not to go after little painters. Only want to go after really big contractors. But also want to protect margins. Can not get margins from big guys.
