    Pros

    Product recognition
    Quality products
    Collaborative team members
    Continuous training
    Accessibility of management

    Cons

    Salary is good, but is not based on commission structure for all sales positions, which in turn means there is a cap as to how much you can make.
    Still some "good 'ol boys" hanging around.

    Advice to Management

    You're doing great. Thanks for listening to your employees.

    Pros

    Forward looking and innovative with a broad product offering. Not afraid to buy companies or invest in new products to fill gaps and have a complete line.

    Cons

    No room for advancement, so many bonus metrics next to impossible to hit. Way too much admin work gets in the way of sales think having meetings to plan having meetings. Low ball pay

    Advice to Management

    Let employees do their jobs and not focus on admin. Have clear career path easily identified, pay people market rates.

    I worked at ASSA ABLOY full-time

    Pros

    1. Working for a Multi National
    2. Not much stress
    3. Lots to learn
    4. Lots of opportunities

    Cons

    1. Administration at nascent stages
    2. Compensation
    3. Less clarity in the company's vision (which is understandable, though, because they have just started in India)

    Advice to Management

    To properly understand what sort of segment the company is targeting. Invest more in technically solving Inventory and Sourcing problems.

    "Very good for the first 5 years, but the last 2 weren’t."

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    Pros

    Departments interacting together to process the order in a quick & efficient manner. Everyone in all departments did their very best to make sure the order was sent to manufacturing for production scheduling.

    Cons

    Rather not say, it was complicated. Changes in an upper management position did not work out for some. A lot of behind the scenes things going on.

    Advice to Management

    Rather not say, just that things weren’t the same before this individual was promoted.
