    Pros

    Quaker has a strong position in its markets, and if you are favored by management opportunities are good.
    As a global company there are opportunities to travel internationally and even take overseas assignments, although that is decreasing.

    Cons

    There is an "old boys" attitude with the "young boys" at the top Unfortunately, the human resources department does not have the courage to address this problem in any signicant way. Other than overseas managers there is no diversity in top management by gender, age and ethnicity. If you are not among the inside group of Quaker management you will work very hard, be paid fairly, but not see opportunities commensurate with your abilities.

    Advice to Management

    Get someone from outside the organization to do a true evaluation of the company culture, attitude and treatment of employees equitably. Have an outside member of the board lead the effort.


  2. I have had plenty of room to grow and have not been micro-managed.

    Pros

    Shrinking market place and the company seems to be in the right place at the right time lately.Not perfect, but it is a company that is geared for people that can do on their own and don't need hand holding.

    Cons

    They are overly cautious and move slow.

    Advice to Management

    Keep in touch with the sales force.Seem to be out of touch for long periods of time.
