    A place with huge potential that is low on resource and high on bureaucracy.

    Pros

    Great brands, great connections to customers. Corporate office seem to be doing the right things. Products have huge potential for improvements.

    Cons

    Consumable Divisions are short sighted, lack experienced leadership and are not resourced for growth. Day to day factory issues take up marketing time. No focus on long term strategies or road maps. Global marking managers have to place orders or workarounds to avoid daily slips. There is no division between sustaining and development. Middle management is reluctant to change, most have never worked outside of their roles and have no other experiences from other companies. Broken processes on top of a miss understanding of branding, product development and research. You don't want to stay long because the lack of change will kill your career.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Bring us out of the 1970s and separate the marketing and business end from the day to day production of the factories. Consolidate all research groups, marketing and development into one business that is not housed near any factories.
