    Pros

    Salaries & Benefits
    Strong, unsung employees (in mid-management & below)

    Cons

    - Focused on expectations of disconnected exec management, not customers
    - Execs openly disparage employees
    - Constant redirect of strategy
    - Strategy & focus is not current with market needs
    - Reactive to competition

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Listen to customers!
    - Don't abandon strategy every 6 months!
    - Understand your businesses (or ensure that the leaders do)
    - Pay attention to the individual EOS scores & 360s of your sr leaders (their directs see more about that manger than you might be seeing)
    - Internal decks & business plans mean nothing until they are successfully released to the market -- don't get overimpressed by employees who are just positioning themselves to 'please you'.

    Pros

    Good location in nice suburb

    Cons

    People are not very professional. No advancement opportunities. No training. Constant layoffs due to poor efficiencies. Recruiting & hiring very weak and adding weak employees. Different parts of the business and company operate as silos are do not communicate. Awful teamwork.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to hire better people - the Dayton folks are slow and stogy and cannot keep up. Product losing share.
