Pros

Highly structured environment with a solid roadmap to the future. Plenty of personal and professional growth opportunity in the form of additional training through seminars and on-site education. Very good compensation package if you are part of the management incentive program. Solid benefits including both a 401(k) and a retirement plan. Tremendous product knowledge at the operating facilities.

Cons

Some ivory tower syndrome, i.e., "everybody at the corporate headquarters is more competent then employees in field locations". Few promotional opportunities in the field, must move to Memphis to move up. In some divisions senior management has little or no operational experience.

Advice to Management

Institute a supervisor rating program.
