    I have been working at Benjamin Moore full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The company has maintained a commitment to quality products and I believe tries to behave honestly in the public eye

    Cons

    Poor focus on providing products geared to real and current customer desires and market trends. The one size fits all centralization of management is suited for making and selling paint in large US coastal cities and ignores the needs of mid continent and smaller center dealers.

    Centralization of decision making has hurt the Canadian market place. The fact it is a "small" market seems to mean it should be ignored despite excellent sales of new products, performance and profitability.

    Advice to Management

    Tweak products for at least dry and humid climtes. It makes a big difference and not doing this puts dealers at a competitive disadvantage in dry climates.

    Allow regional decision making. The East and West coasts are very different markets. Canada and the US are very different markets and face different competitors and competitive pressures.

    There are many managers at various levels punching the clock at career end. If this is a time for renewal, pull out the check book and let them go to pasture, and bring in or promote some motivated, fresh people who haven't lived in the BM corporate culture over decades. Make a new culture based on communication, fairness, openess, performance, purposeful innovation.

    Start making good decisions that are shown in increased sales and market share. Change soon what isn't working. Some companies are growing despite the economy.

    Hire a good behavioral economist to gain insight as to why people buy what they do, and increasingly not BM. It is time to drill down on what paint consumers are really looking for today and put the products in place to meet their wishes, in a way they wish to consume. It can be done, it is being done, and there's more to it than ad expenditures.
