A long road ahead!

I have been working at Jacuzzi Brands

ProsIf you are looking for opportunities across all areas which include: broken processes, minimalistic data reporting, archaic MRP system, keeping overheads low, you probably get the picture by now, then this is the place to work.

ConsMediocrity will always be Jacuzzi's first & last name. Prior to the housing fiasco, they were just about making money but now barely keeping up. 3 changes in senior management in the last 5 years. No bonuses in the last 2 years due to reasons mentioned above. No plan for personal growth. Some folks have fancy titles but it does not imply much. The amount invested in technology & people is practically non-existent as cash is frugal.

Advice to Senior ManagementNeed to have one focused overall vision to grow this company. Need to invest in technology & people. Need to increase prices and hold their ground. Improve Quality & reduce unnecessary overhead.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Tough decisions must be made & implemented at Jacuzzi

Director, Marketing (Current Employee)
Chino Hills, CA

I have been working at Jacuzzi Brands

ProsDiscount on baths & hot tubs; New leadership hailing from Black & Decker have strong business acumen and should breathe new life into the bubbles of Jacuzzi.

ConsUnprofitable product mix leads to difficult to manage p&l. Product lineis too complex and senior leaders are reluctant to trim the fat. The large product portfolio makes it next to impossible to effectively market the right product to the right customers. Too much money is being spent on non-essential business tasks (such as trade show participation, customer events, trade ads). More focus must be placed on reconnecting the brand with consumers in order to drive sales.

Advice to Senior ManagementSimplify the product line by discontinuing slow moving items and those that are unprofitable.

Great Brand, But Too Many Issues To List

Assistant Product Manager (Current Employee)
Chino, CA

I have been working at Jacuzzi Brands

ProsJacuzzi is a gobally known name and a "Fun" company to work for. Most positions have a good work / life balance. Company tries to overcome obstacles, but seems to have a lot of legacy issues dating back to the late 80's.

ConsHorribly quality - Period. The top brass is constantly bringing in new senior management from outside vs. hiring from within. There is very little industry knowledge at the top as Jacuzzi has lost most of the people over the last several years. Most employees have 3-years or less experience at the company and only a couple have any industry experience. The company has had 8 Presidents in the last 8 years - too much transition from year to year. Due to the lack of industry knowledge, no one knows any of the customers any more hence there is no customer focus.

Advice to Senior ManagementFocus on your customers, improve quality, p/u some industry pro's to help you.
