    Pros

    Lot's of great products. Unique offering with few competitors. However the economy and bad decisions have impaired product portfolio growth. Timing is everything, right now X-Rite is striving to be the leader it once was.

    Cons

    Internal battle over who owns what product and what product should be kept alive and what product should be terminated. I think that the bottom line was the only criteria when choosing this and the customers were the first to suffer. There is still time to recover, human nature will not allow it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to the customer, not just the CFO. Look at the impact of not serving the customer as opposed to saving money. Initiate a program where employee suggestion that are implemented are well rewarded. The answers are from within.

    I have been working at X-Rite

    Pros

    The people and the technology are what keep me at this job. It also helps that X-Rite holds the major market share for many of it's segments and has few competitors.

    Cons

    There are currently little to no opportunities for advancement. The product road-map is seemingly still being hammered out from the merger that took place two years ago.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get back to serving and delivering quality products to the customer. Stop focusing on the lower-end measurement devices, we're not making up the difference in volume.
