    Good retirement package

    Good Senior management group
    Making good adavancements in oversees markets to become a global presence

    Cons

    -Poor health insurance (Aetna), You have to fight to get claims paid
    -No opportunities for advancement outside of Cleveland
    -Groupthink mentality by the Technical Senior Management, think like us or leave attitude prevents new ideas and innovations
    -Raise system is backwards. The better you become at your job, the less raise you get
    -Superstar employees get burned out quickly because they are not rewarded or recognized. Networkers get more recognition and appreciation although they produce fewer results
    -Company does not appreciate education. Advanced degrees are treated with less respect than Bachelors level.
    -No guidance or direction from Human Resources in advancing your career.
    -Corporate being in Cleveland prevents the company from being so much more. Many suppliers state how they hate going to Cleveland to do business because the city is a "dump".

    Advice to Management

    The company culture could be a lot better. The company isnt far from being one of the best in the world to work for if employees were more appreciated. Spend a little more for better health insurance and on your number one asset, your employees and you will be amazed at what they will accomplish. We can go so much higher than we are now with a solid investment in the qworkforce, not more acquisitions.

    Recommends
    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    Solid company to work for. At corporate, if you work hard you can advance, somewhat. A lot of people start out in customer services jobs, which helps them to learn the different aspects of the business. I see many people come from those jobs to higher level jobs.

    People are treated respectfully. Benefits and retirement plans are good. One of the better vacation allowances still around these days, probably.

    Upper management makes an effort to keep employees engaged and informed.

    Cons

    Entry jobs out in the field (stores, distribution, plants) may have less opportunity for advancement, longer hours, and lower pay.

    Advice to Management

    Townhall meetings are informative and important. I hope they stay around.
