    I have been working at Valspar full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    You can get ahead if you work hard; performance driven incentives can lead to good bonus payments if you hit your targets. Good place to get a start on your career and get some experience and then move to a company with a better work environment.

    Cons

    Senior leadership is completely out of touch with employees. Morale is terrible at this company, almost every employee is in constant fear of losing their job because of the whim of some senior executive, starting with the company president. They have promoted or brought in some terrible leaders from the outside, people that value self promotion and are self centered, people that do not understand how to get the best out of people through positive motivation. Rather they manage by position power and fear, which does not result in loyalty or innovation.

    Advice to Management

    Change the culture by treating employees with respect and allowing them to do their jobs without fear of being seconded guessed at every turn. No one is going to get everything right 100% of the time.

    I have been working at Valspar full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Left alone to work; no one to oversee my work. OK benefits, although shrinking every year.

    Cons

    No Training, classroom work to improve. All was stopped under last VP Purchasing. More people will leave as local Minneapolis companies are after dissatisfied Valspar personnel. Local Market is improving.

    Advice to Management

    What happened to Trainng and working with Lean Six Sigma versus just Tactical work? Backward Purchasing style.
