Pros

Great brands in a bunch of different categories from tools to cookware to baby gear to writing and more!
JEANS everyday (just announced it this week - right from the CEO!!)
Relatively new CEO is a game-changer. We are starting to understand the new focus and new pace and he is also really focused on outcomes vs. process and powerpoints
Great people that really do want to win
Some pockets of great culture/environment/dynamic (and as usual some opportunities in certain areas too)
Starting to get in a better rhythm around communicating what is going on and when

Cons

Need to figure out and follow through on the things that we can stop doing with the new strategy
Still too much focus on process stuff in certain areas.
Still not great at moving talent across groups

Advice to Management

The strategy seems right so let's go there fast and keep the employees posted as we make changes, strides, have challenges etc.

    Pros

    There are no pro's. Unless your living in your car and this is the last job you can get.

    Cons

    Had to go in with a temp agency first. While there you will be treated like your easily replaced with NO value. Training is close to not there but you are expected to preform like you have been there all your life. Just so anyone reading this thinks I don't know what I'm talking about I worked there for 16 YEARS before leaving. I have never been in a company that is run this poorly and still in business.

    Advice to Management

    I'm not going to bother with advice you won't listen anyway.

    Pros

    You are allowed to go home at some point in the night.

    Cons

    Low pay, terrible upper management, product pipelines are very weak. Very dark place to work.

    Advice to Management

    Upper management wouldn't listen to any advice but if they did I would recommend they resign and get out of the way of progress. Too many managers afraid for their job so they promote milk toast yes people with not an original idea in their wildest dreams.
