Pros

Great People - Many people have been with the company for over 10-15 years and some for most of their career. This helps to build great relationships among co-workers and a fun place to work.
Stability - Overall, business does not suffer as much during a recession.

Cons

While many people have been with the company for their entire careers, this also makes the company very insular and slow to change.
Company tends to be overly cost focused on "little things" (ie office supplies and printer paper) while not realizing that the culture, systems and way of doing business wastes millions of dollars every year.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Realize that you are selling disposable products in a world where consumers are less and less willing to spend a premium for diapers, tissue and toilet paper. Retail brands are a significant threat and retailers view their brand equity the same way you do. Retail brands will continue to increase their value proposition and take away your market share. Hopefully you will wake up before it's too late.

    Pros

    Internal open posting process provides employees to seek out for cross-functional opportunities and professional growth. Collaborations amongst team members is excellent.

    Cons

    Systems and global P&L structure are too fragmented that hinder efficiency in tactical and strategic decisions and communications. Leadership members and team members expectations are often unaligned.
