    Pros

    As a large diverse organization there are opportunities to change careers and even industries. If you are open to moving.

    Cons

    The opportunities are limited within each site. They have not assimilated the numerous acquisitions. There are a lot of conflicting corporate cultures. Very little synergy, or co-operative project efforts between plants. Every location acts as a separate company. New products are customer driven. IE They are not innovative just reactive. This is less risky but they completely avoid the chance to do something new and make use of their diverse product and manufacturing capabilities. Don't expect any new products...ever.

    Advice to Management

    Don't always chase elephants.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Large international corporate experience. Great for the MBA.

    Cons

    Large international corporate experience. Too interested in moving production to China to consider the ramifications on the local workforce which gets strung along, never quite sure how long their jobs will last.

    Advice to Management

    Better top down communication. Reduce levels of management. Pay more attention to the hands on employees.
