Pros

Global company, good brands, good people

Cons

Little to no training available, little budget money for any extras like travel, office supplies, advertising, etc.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

CEO Randy Hogan needs to look closer at the management of each facility to make sure they are actually following his philosophies. He believes in marketing, branding, advertising but each facility is not focused on those areas. Finance runs the show and does not promote the brands.

    A Joke Of A Company

    Pros

    None, I do not believe there are any Pros.

    Cons

    Beware of this company. They will tell you that you are great to your face and behind your back they will backstab you and sell you out to save their own job. How can you treat your employees that way. It is no wonder no one trusts in this company. The GM will do and say anything to save his own behind. Eventually, things will catch up and people will realize what a joke this division is. I would not recommend this company to anyone. If you want to die or a heart attack and have no family time this is the company for you. I can't see this division staying around to long unless there are BIG changes.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fire yourselves and start over.

    Interesting work, but could be challenging because culture was changing

    Pros

    Smart people
    Good products
    Ability to drive change and make improvements
    Interesting project work
    Performance driven culture
    Good pay and benefits

    Cons

    Minimal recognition given
    Company seemed to be going through an identity crisis: Are we a (decentralized) holding company or a (centralized) operating company?
    Lots of process inefficiencies and waste
    Leadership could be short-sighted at times.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Think bigger picture. Invest in long-term solutions that yield strong ROI over time, rather than favoring short-term band-aid fixes that have a more immediate impact on bottom line, but aren't fixing the root cause.
