Pros

Makes a great effort in promoting diversity in the workplace. Prides itself on having the leading brands in the industry. Can be a good place to work depending on the location.

Cons

The historical leadership position within the industry has bred arrogance in many employees especially within the UK. Has its fair share of company or consultant generated buzz words that are looked for in the language that employees speak. Functional global matrix organisational design has meant that there is not complete clarity within markets and that budgets are covetted as personal money stores. Lack of decision making by senior managers who tend to remain in situ for too long creating a lack of promotion opportunities. Much of the strategic thinking driven by embedded consultants.

Advice to Management

Take the long term strategic decisions for the company and don't throw the vision plans away in order to meet short term profit targets. The culture is not just words, it needs to walked with conviction.

    Pros

    Great company culture and fantastic people working there. Very results driven, and focused on capability development. Great brands.

    Cons

    The company seems to be losing its way a little, and brand health seems to be dropping somewhat. They are continually looking for cost efficiencies (which is great), but I think they are now getting too lean on manpower to do the jobs expected of staff.

    Advice to Management

    Don't get too lean on staff. Your strength is your brands, but if you don't have enough people on the ground to spend sufficient time nurturing those brands in the field, they will eventually fail.
