I worked at American Standard as a contractor (more than 5 years)

Pros

This is an iconic multi-national company. Working at American Standard is a prestige. It gives you the edge to be above the rest.

Cons

The corporate headquarters dictates what their factories in other countries must do even if it is not appropriate to the local market of that factory. Their factory should adopt strategies that are suitable for them to be competitive in the local field because it is the local market that generates the higher income not the international ones especially if the international transactions are only inter-company.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

The corporate management should adopt a dynamic strategy based on the needs of the local field to where their other factories are located. It should not make it general to make each factory cope well and stand a better chance of competing with their local rivals.
