    Pros

    Benefits and pay are above industry norms in most areas.

    Cons

    This business will slowly wither on the vine over the next few years. The management isn't investing in innovation: New products aren't given investment and support. The long-term strategy seems to be to purchase innovative businesses, but they can't get the pipeline engaged to actually do anything. The few businesses they've purchased in the last 10 years have been complete wipe-outs due to poor execution.

    The company also seems to have no discernible succession plan anymore. They used to do it pretty well, but since the split with FMC senior management has deprioritized this. Lately, they've had to lay off a lot of North American employees (even at successful business units), simply can't lay off anyone in less successful Europe operations: They need to show shareholders cost reductions without taking big restructuring charges. At they same time, they keep adding overhead staff in Chicago and it's not really clear to anyone else what they actually do.

    It's a shame to see a company with a 100+ year history of success imploding like this.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There are some good businesses to work for here, but they're simply mismanaged. This company needs to go to a PE firm so they can strip out the dead weight.
