    Pros

    Big Company owned by Bane Capital and in the midst of a lot of change. There was some leverage with it being so big and they could cater go larger supply chain solutions.

    Cons

    Tons of Change and owned by Bane Capital. With so much change and being larger, it was a little clumsy for getting medium to smaller deals done.

    Pros

    Good Logistic team, Very solid packaging organization

    Cons

    Merger has taken the existing culture and replaced it with the nothing new.

    Advice to Management

    If you are going to talk team work than actually understand how to coach.

    Pros

    Company has been proactive in finding new ways to grow sales in a marketplace that is declining.

    Cons

    Difficult to get answers at times. Too many layers of management and cross over between segments which leads to conflicts between personnel. Programs are not always well thought out for all the pitfalls that can occur which leads to failures.

    Advice to Management

    At this point the advise would concern the merger. There is too much uncertainty about where everyone fits and it only causes frustration. Get the people involved in accounts together - make a decision and move forward. Don't let people hang on wondering what is going to happen.

  11. Not bad

    Pros

    It's a comfortable atmosphere. For the most part everyone is a time player. Management will work with you in most cases.

    Cons

    I am still gaining experience. I don't have any Cons at the point.
