No opinion of CEO

Pros

great values, great people, opportunity to grow professionally (dont expect too many promotions - very flat org). Great products and good market share

Cons

work life balance, lack of clear and continued vision - one day its profits, one day its innovation, next day is global expansion.

Advice to Management

get closer to your employees, not only consumers. Be transparent, open and honest about issues and change. re-create that "family" feeling we had a few years back. CUT BACK ON bureaucracy!!!!, it slows us down big titme!

    Pros

    A small business with reasonable compensation and a pleasant work environment. The family who owned the business really did make an effort to raise morale. A lot of camaraderie among the work force, and some great parties.

    Cons

    Senior Management was not nearly as talented as they seemed to think they were, which was obvious to almost everyone (except Senior Management apparently). The family sold the business to P&G who subsequently closed it down and laid off almost 100 folks in the worst economy in quite some time. They liked to tell staff they were "family", but you do not sell your family.

    Advice to Management

    Actions truly do speak louder than words and just telling people otherwise and expecting them to blindly believe it is not logical.
