Pros

Discount on baths & hot tubs; New leadership hailing from Black & Decker have strong business acumen and should breathe new life into the bubbles of Jacuzzi.

Cons

Unprofitable product mix leads to difficult to manage p&l. Product lineis too complex and senior leaders are reluctant to trim the fat. The large product portfolio makes it next to impossible to effectively market the right product to the right customers. Too much money is being spent on non-essential business tasks (such as trade show participation, customer events, trade ads). More focus must be placed on reconnecting the brand with consumers in order to drive sales.

Advice to Management

Simplify the product line by discontinuing slow moving items and those that are unprofitable.

    Pros

    If you are looking for opportunities across all areas which include: broken processes, minimalistic data reporting, archaic MRP system, keeping overheads low, you probably get the picture by now, then this is the place to work.

    Cons

    Mediocrity will always be Jacuzzi's first & last name. Prior to the housing fiasco, they were just about making money but now barely keeping up. 3 changes in senior management in the last 5 years. No bonuses in the last 2 years due to reasons mentioned above. No plan for personal growth. Some folks have fancy titles but it does not imply much. The amount invested in technology & people is practically non-existent as cash is frugal.

    Advice to Management

    Need to have one focused overall vision to grow this company. Need to invest in technology & people. Need to increase prices and hold their ground. Improve Quality & reduce unnecessary overhead.
