    Pros

    The company has a friendly culture and is overall a very family friendly. The atmosphere provides opportunity to learn in different areas, become experts in one area. Almost everything that is done is marketing uses consumer insights through internal research or industry knowledge.

    Cons

    The compnay is very hierarchical and many functions are passive agressive. So you have to learn to navigate in order to get your job done. Also, it is very difficult to grow in the company and promotions are usually past due.

    Advice to Management

    Need to develop a flatter structure and provide opportunity for people to grow.


  2. Aren't honest about assignments

    Pros

    Been around a long time.
    Some work is federal contracts

    Cons

    Toxic Corporate Environment ("Buddy System" permeates, cliquish)
    Dishonest about US assignments especially those they're sending to Mexico and China.
    Do not train!...
    Middle, Entrenched management are threatened by initiative from subordinates and often finds ways to dismiss the best people.

    Advice to Management

    Honesty IS STILL the BEST Policy. If you only need a temporary employee, be decent enough to..
    1)Hire them direct instead of using 3rd party employers
    2)Tell them UP front.."We need someone for just two weeks BUT it could be longer or we might need you in another part of the plant". That way, the prospective employee would know for sure going in. (Do unto others as you would have done unto you)
    3)Analyze and evalutate your middle management for signs of "feather bedding"
