    Continue to listen to needs of employees and continue to allow flexible work and good work-life balance Need to be more aware of when asking employee to take on additional work that some additional pay should come along with it, especially if that additional work results in savings for the compnay because a position will not be replaced

     in Chicago, IL

    I worked at Flint Group (Germany)

    Pros

    very compact and lean organization, fast information turn around, quick decision making, good employee empowerment, global reach, No.2 in its respective industry, reasonable balance of marketing, manufacturing and technological capability.

    Cons

    fully matured market, stagnent industry, low growth, cost-cutting driven, limited resource, limited capital expenditure, prone to economic downturn, tense supplier-buyer relationship

    Advice to Management

    Looking outside of printing inks business. Price-cutting is not the only magic tool available. Focusing on making bigger pie. Growth is not necessary a zero-sum game. Reinvent yourself like 3M once did.
