Great People, Poor Management

Vice President (Current Employee)
Vernon Hills, IL

I have been working at Zebra Technologies

ProsPeople are very open and willing to help and support other.
Competent, experienced and very knowledgable workforce.
Always wanting to do the right thing for the custumer.
Great Brand Equity and well know in the Industry.

ConsThe most REACTIVE company I've ever known. Everything is a Fire Drill.
Are too complacent resting on their brand equity laurels and high profit margins.
VERY poor product mananegement, development and introduction. They are too willing to release product that are mired with technical problems and then rework them in the field.
Poor management of human capital. No succession planning, training or development.
Limited understanding of working capital management. (Lots of obsolete inventory!)
Which also stems from their innefficient and poor management of Planning, Forecasting & S&OP.
Inneficient and very high indirect/exempt labor costs.
Very little to no acountability

Advice to Senior ManagementFocus on the core! Don't loose sight of what made Zebra a great company; It's People, Technology and the reputation of a great reliable product.
Eliminate the silos created by the top-heavy Vice President structure you have.
Don't settle for mediocrity, excuses and hold your executive accountable for their execution and delivering on Service, Quality, Cost and People commitments.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
