    "Great Brand, But Too Many Issues To List"

    • Senior Management
    Current Employee - Assistant Product Manager in Chino, CA
    Current Employee - Assistant Product Manager in Chino, CA
    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    Jacuzzi is a gobally known name and a "Fun" company to work for. Most positions have a good work / life balance. Company tries to overcome obstacles, but seems to have a lot of legacy issues dating back to the late 80's.

    Cons

    Horribly quality - Period. The top brass is constantly bringing in new senior management from outside vs. hiring from within. There is very little industry knowledge at the top as Jacuzzi has lost most of the people over the last several years. Most employees have 3-years or less experience at the company and only a couple have any industry experience. The company has had 8 Presidents in the last 8 years - too much transition from year to year. Due to the lack of industry knowledge, no one knows any of the customers any more hence there is no customer focus.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on your customers, improve quality, p/u some industry pro's to help you.

    "Tough decisions must be made & implemented at Jacuzzi"

    No opinion of CEO

    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.
