    I have been working at Briggs & Stratton

    Pros

    Pay and benefits are extraordinary in this market.

    Cons

    Treat employees as resources, but not human. Little upward mobility for women. No upward mobility for 55+. Paternalistic, invasive wellness programs implemented to reduce corporate cost of health care coverage (not for any altruistic reasons).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Rapid expansion is causing chaos in product launches. Way too much too fast!
    Get focus back on track - back on the customer instead of on the stock price. Remember they made us who we were. We're becoming a commodity instead of the smart choice! Not the smart choice for personnel, either - people come on board and stay for the outstanding pay & benefits - not out of any sense of loyalty or pride.
