    Pros

    Great product brands, brand loyalty, and market share.

    Cons

    Undervalued, unappreciated, and very poorly compensated employees ! Managers who lack leadership competency keep breeding their own kind. Merit increases are minimal (1-3%) and occur about every 3-4 years! Too much lip service about process improvements and no real delivery.
