    Pros

    Great CEO
    Even in junior positions you can makec a difference and implement changes
    Significant investment currently after the Forbo acquisition

    Cons

    Lacks processes of larger companies so you need to accept that you have to make some decisions yourself

    Advice to Management

    Recruit enough people (and the right people) to execute on the bold plans that we have

    Pros

    Can be a fun place to work. People are very willing to share ideas, so it's not a "shark tank". I think executives have a clear vision of what they want the company to be like, especially in regards to collaboration and innovation, but the message gets lost in middle management. As with any position, it is what you make it. However, management could help making it more fun

    Cons

    Company is running lean, very lean. You get to wear a lot of hats, whether you want to or not. You always feel like your behind the 8-ball.

    Advice to Management

    Hire the staff so people can focus on 2-3 projects, instead of 6-7. More appreciation for the staff. we are more than headcount.

    Innovative product. Given a lot of flexibility on how to get the job done.

    Cons

    Not very quick to make needed changes to keep up with competitors

    Advice to Management

    Keep innovating rather than getting too settled in the business 'as is'
