    A great find in Houston, TX that you'd be lucky to work at.

    I have been working at ITW Global Brands

    Pros

    Excellent brands, entrepreneurial freedom from corporate HQ, fantastic relationship with key retail accounts, strong leadership, revitalized several areas that needed adjustment, awesome benefits, sharing of company's results is detailed

    Cons

    Room for advancement is limited, a very few number of subpar players put a bit of a strain on the growth potential, growth is tough in the auto aftermarket area

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to address issue of quiet culture (have a little more fun), reward those who are amazing and cut bait on those 3-4 folks who are simply not delivering, don't take everything so seriously, move to a safer location

    I worked at ITW Global Brands full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    - A few directors are competent.
    - A few departments are close knit (but most are not)
    - Well known brands
    - Convenient location.

    Cons

    - Zero room for growth.
    - No corporate culture
    - Poor middle management
    - Very, very high turnover.
    - For most, this is a temporary stop between other jobs

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Train your middle managers how to manage people - they are no longer individual contributors
    - Develop culture

    I worked at ITW Global Brands full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    The company has very strong brands with strong consumer loyalty. The sales agencies are very strong and make up for some of the corporate short falls.

    Cons

    Very poor business processes with little appreciation for distribution channels resulting in conflicts with trading partners. Poor financial tracking tools and systems that get in the way of selling and developing customer relationships. Poor sales performers are rewarded over those who drive solid sales and profit results.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Clean house at the top and develop solid strategic business plans that align with the retail customers.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
