    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    There was room for advancement and strong drive to LEAN/Six Sigma. Excellent industry with market share in key areas. Very stable workforce, with excellent work ethics.

    Cons

    Corporate (Textron) mismanagement. Should let each business run independently. Greenlee lost the small/agile ability to adapt and change, when Textron got involved in the business. Look what happend to the fastener divisions after Textron took over - very similar path for Greenlee. Textron will chase the low dollar labor and has hurt them in many of thier companies. Barclay Olson created a World Class environment and Greenlee was the company to beat - now they are struggling to compete in many key areas - including retail.

    Advice to Management

    Hire good people and take care of them. Too many good people left to go to competitors.

    Pros

    The benefits package of a matching 401K, paid personal & vacation time, and insurance package. Advancement opportunities within other Textron BU'S is another option.

    Cons

    Paper work is a challenge

    Advice to Management

    Gather more feedback from their distributors and end users through the use of surveys and/or product samples. Although each product goes through certain industry standards for testing, they need to be tested in the field by the end users that will be using the tools daily. This will enable Greenlee to determine if a particular product line will perform to the tough standards in the field.
