    I worked at ASSA ABLOY full-time (More than 5 years)

    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.

    Pros

    Steady workflow and some decent co-workers.

    Cons

    44000 + employee company and the 2 "TOP DOGS" are leaving the company...yikes.. Office politics to the 15th degree. No training program whatsoever, Sink or Swim. Obscene amounts of work and responsibilities because they want to run lean. Couple years there and seen 23 terminations of managers and field workers. They averaged 1 a month. Some 25 year vets.

    Pros

    Products are great to sell and talk about! Company is an awesome company!! Enjoyed working for them and would do it again.

    Cons

    Limited management so they took on someone who does not know how to lead ppl in the team, unfortunately, when you explain something to a manager i.e. The grass is green and they reply by i.e. Look at the clouds they puffy, that's exactly how opposite the Mangement is, not willing to listen and pretend to help but actually could care less about their team. CRM sucks big time!! Don't trust it at all, one month it has figures in there the next month they gone, when I confronted the manager, he said, he doesn't know, I must find out what happened to it, he doesn't know.

    Advice to Management

    Pay close attention who you put into mid level positions, don't rush and just get anyone who has no experience in a leadership roll to just fill the position.
