Scared monkeys sitting at a round table

Executive (Current Employee) Los Angeles, CA

Prosinternational company; diversified assets and areas of operation; multinational employee population; some strong brands; transversal offerings; extensive patent portfolio; talented worker bees

Consmultinational employee population (cross cultural misunderstanding); lack of top-level executive vision or leadership; lack of identity; weak long-term research investment; fragmented disciplines; siloed departments; no integration protocols (numerous recent acquisitions with zero integration); provincial thinking; misdirected retention policies (driven by French union regulations, rather than merit); declining value in patent portfolio; too many chefs; little corporate understanding of divisional value

Advice to Senior Managementtake the time to explore, develop, and implement clear and consistent strategy; give executive staff the reins; make decisions and stick with them for more than a month; stop being drive nby the bottom line ALL the time and open yourselves up to the concept of visionary management and focus.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
