Pros

Financial results great for 2009. Senior Leadership finally stabilized. Decent growth trends. Good Talent Acquisition in last 18 months.

Cons

TOO LEAN in human capital and investment in the Supply Chain infrastructure; lack of people, diverse talent and innovation in plants, and raw material sourcing. No investment for the future to support sales. No plan for raw materials; spot buying is unreliable and costly long-term.

Advice to Management

The so-called turn-around will be short lived beginning to surface in 2010. No investment in knowledgeable people, capital equipment, and a strategy beyond Sales will lead to sub-optimal performance very shortly.

    I worked at H.B. Fuller full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits, great people. Community oriented, many volunteer opportunities available. A work-life balance is possible at Corporate. Nice headquarters, very environmentally conscious.

    Cons

    Too many middle management layers. Have to be a part of the "clique" to advance. CEO pretends to care about employees. No loyalty. If you've been there more than 10 years, look out!

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the office politics.
