    Pros

    There was room for advancement and strong drive to LEAN/Six Sigma. Excellent industry with market share in key areas. Very stable workforce, with excellent work ethics.

    Cons

    Corporate (Textron) mismanagement. Should let each business run independently. Greenlee lost the small/agile ability to adapt and change, when Textron got involved in the business. Look what happend to the fastener divisions after Textron took over - very similar path for Greenlee. Textron will chase the low dollar labor and has hurt them in many of thier companies. Barclay Olson created a World Class environment and Greenlee was the company to beat - now they are struggling to compete in many key areas - including retail.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire good people and take care of them. Too many good people left to go to competitors.
