    Outstanding for the first 5 years until top senior management changed, especially after Mr. Callaway passed away.

    Pros

    Product, People, Workplace Environment, Benefits, Salary, Learning Opportunity

    Cons

    Very Political at the Sr. VP and up level. Lots of backstabbing and turf wars which was so disappointing considering the level of talent and ability at that level. Stock options to VPs / CEO too lucrative and caused decisions to be made based on what it would take to get short-term results / stock performance rather than what was best for consistent, long-term shareholder growth. While I was there (about 8 years) the entire Senior Management Team (about 25 individuals holding VP or higher positions) turnover was over 400%. This was clearly another problem that caused this type of decision making to occur.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Where is the accountability at the wholly-owned sub. top management level? SKUs have quintupled over the last 8 years, yet revenues / profitability have dropped below levels where SKUs, company-wide were 1/5 of what they are now. Why are these individuals still running the major international market sales companies?
