I have been working at Valspar full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Valspar has a group of decent people who are willing to share their knowledge of the coatings industry with you. They pay a fair wage, and they are accomodating in terms of taking vacation time.

Cons

If there is even a hint of anything but robust earnings for the next year upper management will absolutely not open job requisition orders. Have spent 3 years waiting for a higher level job to open, and have interviewed for one opening, only to have the opening closed out despite the desires of middle management to have myself secured in said position.

Advice to Management

Do not spend three years of time and resources training an asset to the company and then force them to seek employment elsewhere.
