    I worked at Lawson Products

    Pros

    They are starting to dig themselves out of the hole that the Government debacle from years ago put them in.

    Cons

    They have too many issues at once going on; SAP install, supply chain issues, independent agents to employee changes, corporate do it my way gig...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep in mind the people make the business happen. Treat the tenured folks with care and bring them through the changes, don't get ride of them due to the changes.
