A terrific company with all the ingredients for success, compromised by detached and incompetent senior leadership.

Pros

A terrific company with all the ingredients for success including: excellent brand recognition, broad product portfolio, effective global sales channels, strong financial position, and a fairly talented, dedicated workforce.

Cons

Senior leadership is grossly out of touch with both customers and employees. Strategy and direction seem to shift at the drop of a hat with no apparent understanding of the marketplace. Execution is even weaker with very little focus on planning, resources allocation, or active involvement by senior leadership. Very little value placed on employees as evidenced by limited communications, recognition, development, etc.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Take a hard look at your senior leadership team! You have far too many and most are grossly ineffective. Focus on building a new, smaller senior leadership team that knows how to obtain market insight, set a winning strategy and insure solid execution through active engagement with employees.

    Pros

    Its really difficult to identify the pros when they simply dont exist.

    Cons

    If you think your hard work will get appreciated and you will get a promotion as a result - forget about it. Just like any other manufacturing company, engineering talent is not appreciated at Zebra. Unless you are in sales or marketing, forget about here staying more than a couple of years with a hope to grow in your field and become a better specialist.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management perfectly knows whats going on, but I don't think they want to change anything.

    Pros

    Zebra was a company going places with good products and great ethics. With a good captain at the helm and a good strategy, things could have been very different.

    Cons

    Zebra now appears to be in panic mode, flapping around like a headless chicken. An outsourcing program that has been disastrous from day one and a senior management team that have no clue what goes on around them. You can only do well at Zebra if you are spineless and two faced, prepared to kiss a lot of ass and dump on those beneath you. Incompetency isn't compulsory, but it helps.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You already know the problems and the problem people. Less talk, more do and get rid of the old boys club.
