    Pros

    Leadership was a progessive and forward thinking group. There was an entreprenueral flavor from senior managment that filtered throughout the organization. They are always in merger/acquisition mode.

    Cons

    The flip side of being in acquistion mode is that while from the corporate stand point the organization gets stronger, in many cases, good individuals lose their positions. Many talented and outstanding individuals had their positions eliminated even though the organization itself got larger and stronger after a major merger. It is not as comfortable going in to work, and you don't perform at your best when you aren't sure if your position will be the next to be eliminated.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I think if there are going to be position eliminations due to a merger or acquisition, it would probably be better to have the announcements of those eliminations all at one time instead of having several different announcements 2 to 3 weeks apart from each other. It's asking a lot of employees to continue going about business as usual and focus on doing their best when they don't know if they're going to still be an employee by the end of the day or not.

    Pros

    Paycheck on time, most of the time. Product lines that is if not the best of it's own kind then one of the best.

    Cons

    Can you say slave labor? They expect you to wear all the hats, your competive peers have only to sell and merchandise product line, at Lance you have to be operations manager, district manager, warehouse manager, truck washer, and on and on. You never can or have done enough.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    A real disconnect from upper and mid level managment to the actual man on the street as to what you can and can not do and get by with your/their customers. extreamly unrealistic expectations. Managment was totally closed eared.
