    Pros

    There is always a chance for an employee to take on a project for professional growth or career advancement. Management is very open to allowing their folks to grow in different areas. We are relatively flat as an organization which allows all levels access to senior management. We are a lean company which allows for some to wear different hats. Also, work/life balance is great here. People are held accountable and treated like adults.

    Cons

    For some, location might be a detractor being in the northern suburbs of Chicago. Manager-Director level employees sit in cubes.

    Advice to Management

    I think that the leadership of Fortune Brands is doing a good job, especially in this economy. We are doing better than are competitors and that speaks for itself.

    "Lack of professional growth, but an ok place to work if your aspirations are the status quo."

    Pros

    The company allows autonomy within the details of ones own position. Micromanaging only occurs if senior management does no have confidence in your work. Senior management has an open door policy. Work schedule is flexible and personnel is friendly.

    Cons

    The atmosphere is like a silo. Communication and withholding information from coworkers is prominent. Lack of professional growth is prominent and stifling.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the open door policy in place. Engaging your people with the business units would be beneficial in understanding how operations work and can only enhance things.
