Most things remain to be done....

Management (Current Employee)

Pros-affordable and diverse health, dental and vision benefits
-generous paid leave, that grows with tenure
-ability to have input on company direction through many different levels of management, open communication.
-management positions offer the ability to lead your business like an owner

Cons-business direction & initiatives can change either suddenly, seemingly on a whim, or very slowly
-there's a cultural gap between European and North American management that can create a disconnect. Coordination of business priorities aren't consistent between divisions of the company.
-American employees either go overboard with the company culture or fail to understand it entirely. New employees can find the company difficult to understand.

Advice to Senior Management-be consistent
-be open
-look past your own business to see the bigger picture

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
