Pros

Great brand name and one of the few CPG firms in Boston. Excellent location just outside of Concord allows for good commutes.

Cons

Poor leadership from VP levels, very political environment where politics count more than results. New CEO extremely hands on and working conditions are extremely demanding. Morale is poor and falling, much turnover and more layoffs expected. Company has trouble competing in many of the categories it sells in, against bigger, stronger brands with much larger budgets.

Advice to Management

Empower people, lose the politics, reduce role and power that HR has in day-to-day running of business, demand execution and results from Sales department.
