    Pros

    Stable, global company that has some potential for advancement if you are in the right business unit and the right position.

    Cons

    Stagnant, slow moving bureaucracy incapable of changing at the level or speed it needs to in order to maintain market dominance. Convoluted management structure (more dotted line than solid line), too many layers.

    Advice to Management

    Pick a direction and stick with it for more than a year. Simplify & remove complexity from your systems. Focus less on developing a mission statement and graphics for presentations and more time working on customer value added activities.

    Pros

    Multicultural, good corporate ethics, global provider of best in class products, striving to become the global leader in energy management solutions. Recent acquisitions fill in the plant to plug and energy management storyline for electric energy management.

    Cons

    Size of company makes changes slow, need for consensus in decision making

    Advice to Management

    Be willing to take more risks, be bold
