      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Good benefits, union contract to protect workers and provide a livable wage, and family oriented environment.

      Cons

      No work life balance, company focuses on numbers versus quality, favoritism, initiative programs fail due to management changing structured process to suit the company needs versus empowering the workforce to make decisions, greedy title holders in management, never stay with strategic plans, and no respect for workforce. The company has forgotten how they make their profits and what generates their revenues.

      Pros

      Lot of opportunities of career development in different positions in different countries. Good Salary and benefits.

      HR didn't take action when they receive a suggestions or feedback from employees. The leadership is old school style, so they are not aligned whit news technologies or news models of business.

      Not a Company to Work For if You're a Person of Color

      Mar 31, 2021 - Human Resources

      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      The compensation isn't bad. The Corporate Headquarters is nice.

      Cons

      Nepotism is pervasive within Leadership. If you're not a part of the "Good Old Boys Club" then it's really difficult to move up. There is no African American Female representation in leadership. Out of 60,000 associates the highest ranking AA Female is a Manager. The company communicates that they are dedicated to diversity and change but there has been little to no action behind their words. Senior Leaders WITHIN HR have racially offensive pictures hanging on their walls. There is no Asian representation in leadership....not even in the Asia Pacific region. The CEO seems like he has good intentions and he's a nice guy but he has very poor leadership in his direct reports. The CHRO has consistently shown that he's only interested in promoting people he likes and not people who are most qualified. Leadership positions are rarely ever posted so associates can be given an equal opportunity to be considered for them. Most times they're given and have promoted non-people of color, that again, are in the "Good Old Boys" club.

      Laid back, job security. If you show up on time and willing to learn they'll be desperate to keep you.

      Cons

      Little room for advancement. Use this company as a launching point and then get the hell out of dodge.
