I have thrived in the very independant environment, but the lack of structure and leadership has cause major obstacles.

Pros

Barilla has great work life ballance, and produces a great high quality product that you can be proud to represent. The office is small and relationships are very important.

Cons

Overall corporate strategy is not clearly communicated. Internal communication is a huge barrier to progress.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Have clear corporate strategy that all departments can work collectively together to acheive. Make sure this strategy is clearly communicated to the entire organization.

Dealings with corporate HQ in Italy difficult due to language barrier resulting in miscommunications. Mgmt unable to be flexible in decision making since decisions are controlled by Italy corporate HQ
