Pros

If you are looking for opportunities across all areas which include: broken processes, minimalistic data reporting, archaic MRP system, keeping overheads low, you probably get the picture by now, then this is the place to work.

Cons

Mediocrity will always be Jacuzzi's first & last name. Prior to the housing fiasco, they were just about making money but now barely keeping up. 3 changes in senior management in the last 5 years. No bonuses in the last 2 years due to reasons mentioned above. No plan for personal growth. Some folks have fancy titles but it does not imply much. The amount invested in technology & people is practically non-existent as cash is frugal.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Need to have one focused overall vision to grow this company. Need to invest in technology & people. Need to increase prices and hold their ground. Improve Quality & reduce unnecessary overhead.

    I have been working at Jacuzzi Brands full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Ability to drive change within the organization. It is a small enough company to be recognized for good results. Plenty of growth potential both with the business and personally.

    Cons

    Antiquated processes and equipment with little investment. "IT" technology is lacking.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue top grading, setting high expectations and growth of the brand.

    I have been working at Jacuzzi Brands full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Even though the brand has diminished, it is still very recognizable although a bit generic these days.
    Nice offices with company showroom - if only the company culture actually reflected their offices.

    Cons

    Where do I start?
    Leadership team that came from Black & Decker has all but run the company into the ground just like the business unit they came from.
    Management team doesn't understand the basics of selling plumbing - kind of a big deal when you are in the plumbing business.
    Too retail focused.
    Trade (Wholesale) channel and sales roles are a revolving door - management doesn't appear to understand or care. Wholesale partners have lost faith in the brand and don't trust the company or it's management.
    No promotion opportunities unless you have a B&D background.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please move on before the brand is completely dead. Some of us do actually care about the brand that we helped build.
