Challenging work, but poor succession planning

I have been working at PolyOne

ProsChallenging work
Great people to work with
Good IT platform
Good knowledge sharing
Great safety record

ConsPoor/no succession planning
People development needs work
People are generally overloaded with work, especially at the manufacturing plants
People who work at the plants are generally looked down upon by head office
Lean six sigma program misguided?

Advice to Senior ManagementDevelop your people and train your managers to be coaches. Re-focus the Lean Six Sigma program on process improvement, instead of using it as a tool to save money.
