Very people-oriented, takes too long to make decisions

Project Manager (Current Employee) Benton Harbor, MI

ProsThe company pays a lot of attention to employee engagement, which is fantastic. There are plenty of opportunities to move into new roles and each employee is driven to be an active part of their career development.

ConsThe company is highly "matrixed" - along functional, regional, and product category boundaries - that creates unnecessarily long timing for decisions to be made. They use a "forced ranking" system of performance management - fitting a pool of similar roles into a forced distribution of performance. That drives behavior that places the individual before the company - I have never heard so many comments regarding "PMP" at a company in my life.

Advice to Senior ManagementContinue the focus on employee engagement and get rid of the forced ranking.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
