Pros

US market leading brands in Pet Snacks, affording the opportunity to learn how to establish meaningful emotional connections with pet parents.

Cons

Overexposured to the US market (over 95% of net sales), conflicting incentives across functions, manufacturing silos running as independent cells on defense posture and survival mode.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Learn how to assess and mitigate risk, empowering and entrusting managers who are closer to day-to-day business. Foster a healthier culture supported by values, principles and true lasting purpose, which in turn will instill pride and deeper commitment. Job retention should be the by-product of a healthy culture instead of resulting exclusively from the glamours San Francisco location.

    Pros

    Competitive pay. Great people overall. Job stability.

    Cons

    Long hours. Many deadlines. Very old school and behind the times with respect to working from home, casual dress, part-time opportunities.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They need to do some benchmarking and upgrade the way they handle nontraditional employment situations, such as telecommuting, casual dress, and other flexible options that would keep employees happy.

    Pros

    Good People and great weather in the Bay Area

    Cons

    Company direction is mixed at best. Direction seems to be run at full steam, stop, wait, run at full steam.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide clear direction to the team with goals that make sense for increasing the very low stock value.
