Former Employee - Marketing in Saint Paul, MN
Former Employee - Marketing in Saint Paul, MN
Doesn't Recommend
No opinion of CEO

Pros

Good name on resume still
Interesting technologies
Cool labs and smart people
Good international growth

Cons

Extremely slow to recognize and adapt to change - at risk of being becoming irrelevant in US
Very outdated technology systems, processes and skill sets
Limited advancement, long, long waits for promotions, emphasis on lateral moves, many dead ends
No real marketing expertise
Even the interior is a weird flashback to what what the 1950s looked like, and many current employees were probably working there then (40+ years of service not uncommon, while employees under the age of 40 quite uncommon)

Advice to Management

Could be a cool place to work again with a complete overhaul to bring it to the 2000's.
