    Once a GREAT company, now becoming a caricature of itself.

    Manager (Current Employee) Charlotte, NC

    ProsInternational travel, committed and hard working colleagues. A great legacy from its founding family.

    ConsThe management board (since the founder's son died) is focused solely on profit. They are lacking in humanity or holistic vision. They are currently planning to standardize and migrate many global jobs to low wage countries, but are not honest with their colleagues about it. Upper - mid level managers are either unaware they are pawns or are complicit. The constant expectation of employees always giving more and getting less has become rote and hard to appreciate.

    Advice to Senior ManagementProfit is not everything. Build a world-class company that gives back to the colleagues that have built it. Try some honesty and stop speaking in vague sophistry. Look to examples of companies which are market leaders through innovation and humanity rather than continual cost cutting. It's ok to have costs which result in pleasing customers and gaining market share.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
