Pros

Develop excellent products - proud to represent quality. An excellent name to have on a resume, as it's large and has a strong reputation, brand recognition. The environmental focus is admirable.

Cons

Poor management, lack of versatility and ability to change with current trends. Not employee focused. Salaries are below what competition offers. Treatment toward employees is less then satisfactory and moral is poor as a result.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Take leadership courses. Focus on the employee loyalty effect, as it transfers to customer loyalty. Learn how to be leaders in delivering the message of quality through innovative means (not just relying on an established reputation as leaders in technology) and demonstrate an ability to change with the times - a good example is Rogers communication. Pay according to standards. People want to be associated with a company that is forward focused.
