    Pros

    - Some departments offer flex-schedule/work from home
    - An important mission - to protect what matters most to their customers
    - A lot of discussion on doing the right things (employee programs/training)

    Cons

    - High turn-over in Sr. Level positions, causes frequent changes in direction
    - Not a company with a learning culture or the willingness to increase the investment in learning and development
    - One cost containment effort after another, every time budget for training was reviewed, it was lowered

    Advice to Management

    Invest in learning and development. Leverage existing talent. Complete skills assessments or at least have a discussion with employees before letting them go during RIFs, then turning around and hiring to fill the needs created by the RIFs.

    Pros

    In the process of transitioning from a holding company to an operating company so there is a lot of opportunity to grow,

    Cons

    Reward and recognition is often lacking. Not enough opportunity for promotion.Depending on your function the compensation is not competitive. Competitors pay a lot more than they do

    Take care of your top talent or else you will loose them.

    Pros

    The Advancement Opportunities, 401k and Benefits. Some real good Co-Workers. You will learn a lot while being at Ansul. The Culture at Ansul was great. The hard working people at Ansul is what I miss most.

    Cons

    Some of the Management team made it very hard to come into work each day. The hours you will be expected to work as a Salary employee will be 50+, no matter how efficiently you work. There is no bonuses for a production supervisor and lower on the org chart. You will not feel listened to by some of management, but by some you will.

    Pros

    Company at my specific branch were all very friendly and helpful with basic day to day tasks. Nice new office and they give you a car for your travels.

    Cons

    If you don't know something, good luck figuring it out cause there will be no help from the management. They provided minimal support and education on the the products you are asked to sell.

    Advice to Management

    Start the new people off with ride alongs, making sure that those who are selling your products know what they are talking about.
