ProsThere is always a chance for an employee to take on a project for professional growth or career advancement. Management is very open to allowing their folks to grow in different areas. We are relatively flat as an organization which allows all levels access to senior management. We are a lean company which allows for some to wear different hats. Also, work/life balance is great here. People are held accountable and treated like adults.

ConsFor some, location might be a detractor being in the northern suburbs of Chicago. Manager-Director level employees sit in cubes.

Advice to Senior ManagementI think that the leadership of Fortune Brands is doing a good job, especially in this economy. We are doing better than are competitors and that speaks for itself.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
