    I worked at Smiths Group full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Opportunity for global experience. Some divisions offer small business experience within a large business. Best of both worlds. Great colleagues for the most part. Very ethical company.

    Cons

    Sometimes UK corp HQ is out of touch with what's needed at foreign sites. Systems integration are lacking.

    Advice to Management

    "HQ knows best" is not a good philosophy with a portfolio-style holding company.
