Inconsistent and deleterious management style, including senior management.

I worked at Brunswick full-time (more than 8 years)

Pros

Fairly competitive pay and some employees are very dedicated (and long term).

Cons

During my entire 9 year tenure at Brunswick, I was consistently amazed and aghast at the incompetence of the entire Human Resources "team." The failure to take appropriate disciplinary action for clear violation of policy was/is egregiously random. The "Ethics Program" is ineffective and a joke among employees. Also, management, including (and especially) senior management, are very egocentric and fail to foster a positive environment for employees (there is no departmental cohesion). My last six months there, I literally only spoke with both my manager and my senior manager once (my manager spent more time on shopping websites and emailing friends than actual work). It is common knowledge that several senior managers are just biding time until retirement to cash in millions in stock.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Be more involved and create a positive departmental dynamic. Make employees accountable for violation of policy, including failure of acceptable performance.
