Pros

Freindly people, Workout facility on-site

Cons

Mangement only cares what their employees are going to do for them to make them look good, no respect given to those people who have been with Valspar for years. No training or advancement opportunities, always look to hire for the outside, not within the Company. Constant fear that you are going to be cut next because you don't work with the vision they have

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Promote from within and spend money training your employees, support and train the talent you have instead of cutting them when they aren't good enough anymore

    Pros

    People generally are good.
    Can collaborate with some at the plant level to share ideas for improvement.

    Cons

    Management does not support continuous improvement efforts. They do not involve the appropriate staff in decision making, thus efforts are wasted because implementation is seldom supported by plant employees.
    Most employees are not trained well enough to perform the job with high levels of qualtiy and safety. There is no accountability to completing jobs according to procedure.
    Scope writing for projects not properly done allowing contractors to make important decision that should be coming from the project managers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Involve appropriate technical staff when making large capacity or quality improvement changes. Get their input so that the efforts are properly supported and sustained post implementation.
    Follow through with agreed resolutions to voiced employee concerns.

    I worked at Valspar full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Overall a solid employer that assisted myself in building valuable sales skills. A lot of these skills were learned on my own.
    Benefits and retirement savings were competitive.
    Developed myself into a well respected member in my field.

    Cons

    Too many levels of management that delayed receiving a decision to a problem a huge challenge.
    Many managers chose to micro-manage their outside sales force.
    Very little, if any, career advancement opportunities.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more open to your sales force. Offer them more information on the direction that upper management wants to take.
