    Pros

    Things move very quickly, Some of the new products are fairly exciting, Good pay and benefits. The people who are not in management are very friendly and very helpful when you need to know how to do things.

    Cons

    Company is not keeping up with the times, management is stuck in a rut. Management tries to utilize Lean and Six Sigma practices, but it's all very superficial, no one seems to want to actually find the causes of problems, just give the perception of trying to find them.

    None of the internal databases talk to each other, and there is no clear definition of how to do things. Some projects have gotten to implementation only to find out that approval is needed from 3 -4 other business units.

    The company has just been sold and morale is extremely low. Good employees are fleeing.

    Advice to Management

    Instead of the perception of efficiency and problem solving - you should actually problem solve.
    Invest in an all inclusive database and create clear documentation of your processes which include ALL parties involved
    Know what your people do, and how to best utilize them.

    Pros

    Global organization with world class talent, progressive learning environment with strong benefit package, opportunity to advance, diverse talent and willingness to develop strengths

    Cons

    Large company with a level of bureaucracy common in Fortune 500 companies. Turnover rate is relatively high especially in mid to upper management levels with typical political alliances.

    Advice to Management

    Stop shedding talented managers with diverse ideas. Focus on those who deliver results versus those who talk about the next big plan for recovering.
