I worked at Valspar

Pros

Lots of opportunities for advancement. They run very lean so there is some job security since most management staff are doing multiple jobs. Fairly stable company. Lots of work so you are never bored.

Cons

Company runs very lean and the work load is overwhelming. If you are looking for a place where you can perform quality work, this is not the place. If you love to work on multiple things and get them just good enough to get by, then this is a great place to work. Not for the very detailed oriented.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

If you are going to put people in levels that they aren't completely qualified for, you need to spend the time and money to develop them into that role.

    Pros

    Big company and it pays pretty well for the area. The HR people are always available and will tell managers when they do something wrong.
    They give us good information about how the company and and plant are doing.

    Cons

    Corporate people come down and "help" us by giving us a bunch of work. But they don't give us the resources we need to get them done.
    There isn't enough continuity of the improvement programs. First it was Lean Thinking, 6S, then TPS, then Six Sigma. But one group would be working on one think and another working on something that would make the first group ineffective.
    The technical group in KC act like prima donnas, setting requirements that are impossible to meet on the equipment, then complain when the requirements aren't met.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't put people in the position of failing because they were given mutually exclusive objectives.
