    I have been working at H.B. Fuller full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Collaborative environment with great people... where work/life balance is encouraged and my ideas are valued.

    Cons

    Cons for a place of employment are more personal to me. Like, I live too far away and wish I lived closer. There are no CONs that I would share to discourage someone from working at HBF because it's better than any other company I've worked for personally.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to work on employee development to help them grow and to retain good people.

    Great people! Very welcoming and exemplify great commitment to the company!
    Values in the environment, community service, and the people aspect of the company made working here exciting!

    Company was in a midst of some shifts that documentation organization could be better.

    Pros

    Good ideas in the company. Dedicated people with enthusiasm to get things done and to continuously improve on the job. Very open environment for new thoughts and ideas.

    Cons

    Too much short term oriented in goals and objectives. Target often not properly broken down from top to bottom, therefore not necessarily realistic.

    Advice to Management

    More long term focus with sufficient staffing and realistic plans will be helpful. More listening from bottom to top will be motivating.
