Pros* Opportunities to make things happen
* Talented workforce
* Big company that feels like a family operation
* Good benefits including tuiton reimbursement

ConsIt doesn’t take long to learn that this division has one goal and one goal only—meeting sales forecast. Chaos abounds with this singularly focused goal; scrap rates are high; on-time delivery suffers; and the end of the month is always a production marathon.

Advice to Senior ManagementMeeting sales forecast is of course important but to be first-class the company needs to truly adopt and adhere to a triple-bottom-line mission maximizing value for three distinct stakeholders—people (customers and employees), profit, and planet (environmental consciousness).
