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

    Pros

    Benefits package is tremendous for medical, dental, other insurance, 401 and PTO. Being in the consumer goods industry allowed for a nice discount on cookware and small domestic appliances. There are also some very talented staff on the team.

    Cons

    Leadership is lacking and in dictator form, not a good environment to be creative and produce results. Unfortunately, only the lucky few were developed with training at HQ. Turnover is extremely high, both voluntary and by Company decision (job elimination). The environment is not positive and morale continues to deteriorate. Although there is some flexibility you pay for that as the job demands excessive hours and workload due to job cuts. Corporate just keeps ignoring the situation the US, which continues to decline. Company values are on paper, not in practice.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Lead, don't dictate, you have many very intelligent talented people that can creatively achieve the goals if you allow them. Reduce the non-valued added and duplicate reporting, as your people are wasting time instead or producing results. You keep talking about this but no action. Open your eyes to what's happening in the US, not good, the turnover is happening for good reason.
