Negative Outlook
No opinion of CEO

I have been working at Benjamin Moore full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Decent benefits package, nice office building, pride in premium product

Cons

Stressful and unhappy environment, highly political with less emphasis on building the business than building their own careers by upper management who have no experience in the paint and coatings industry, too many good people have been let go or are leaving.

Advice to Management

Focas on building the business, the product is now too expensive and competitors' products are only slightly behind in quality. Leadership, direction and dedication are lacking and you are not treating the employees well.

    Positive Outlook
    Approves of CEO

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

    Pros

    Decent effort to improve the culture
    Educational opportunities (seminars, courses, etc)
    Company promotes productivity
    A lot of great ideas, and people to execute those ideas
    A lot of people stay for 20+ years
    Good benefits

    Cons

    Not enough people willing to change old habits to conform with the "new culture"
    Career progress can be slow
    "new culture" puts younger/newer employee in the difficult position to manage up, instead of demanding some managers to be better managers.
    Large gap between "old timers" and "young talent"

    Advice to Management

    To all managers, including upper management: Actively engage in looking out for the careers of those who work below you. The company needs new fresh insight and energy. Their success is your success.
