    Pros

    Excellent deliveries Product availability Good website Knowlegeable people

    Cons

    Too many initiatives Too many meetings Too many reports They say they want feedback but they really don't Upper management dismissive in meetings HR runs the company Sales and managers have 5-20% of their salary at risk High stress level No fusion with the 2 largest suppliers- KMT and Seco.

    Advice to Management

    Cut down on paperwork and meetings Initiatives are out of control Don't punish the messenger learn from other companies, sometimes they do it better !!

    Pros

    you'll always have job security, even in a downturn. bonuses are good, but not guaranteed. a lot of creative freedom and great co-workers...

    Cons

    too many directors. too many cliques.

    Advice to Management

    not everyone outside the building is better than everyone inside the building. treat and pay people like you want them to stay.
