The head office in Columbus, IN is a very small place and not ideal to attract good talents.

Top down approach to managment. It is unlikely ideas at the bottom of the value chain will get heard in setting strategy decisions. Levels of hierarchy needs to be reduces.

    - Advancement possiblities limited for those in "support" organizations
    - Too dependent on Six Sigma as a leadership development tool
    - Base pay for professionals lower than at similar companies

    - Staffing tight in some areas

    Advice to Management

    Would like to see leadership do a better job of recognzing talent and potential across the entire range of the company. Too often, talented people get pigeon-holed based on their current duties and we're not creative enough to find ways to translate skills of people with non-traditional backgrounds or core business roles (i.e. - non-technical roles) into leadership positions.
