    Pros

    Pay and benefits are extraordinary in this market.

    Cons

    Treat employees as resources, but not human. Little upward mobility for women. No upward mobility for 55+. Paternalistic, invasive wellness programs implemented to reduce corporate cost of health care coverage (not for any altruistic reasons).

    Advice to Management

    Rapid expansion is causing chaos in product launches. Way too much too fast!
    Get focus back on track - back on the customer instead of on the stock price. Remember they made us who we were. We're becoming a commodity instead of the smart choice! Not the smart choice for personnel, either - people come on board and stay for the outstanding pay & benefits - not out of any sense of loyalty or pride.

    Pros

    Household name, strong brands and a pretty solid product. Briggs is blessed with some excellent employees. Unfortunately, many (most) of them are not provided enough opportunity to shine.

    Cons

    Management, management, management! Morale is at the bottom of the barrel and has been there for a long time. People mope around the office like zombies waiting for the clock to strike 4PM. Not a fun place at all.

    Advice to Management

    Stop acting like kings and start acting like you give a dang!
