    I have been working at H.B. Fuller full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Dedicated people. Company cares about good long term employees. In most areas the working flexibility is given. Company's size and structure allow good performance treaceability.

    Cons

    Takes too long to action on weak employees, in particular in the upper level. Too many chances given and too much time lost.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the flexibility. People appreciate it!

    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.

    I worked at H.B. Fuller full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits, great people. Community oriented, many volunteer opportunities available. A work-life balance is possible at Corporate. Nice headquarters, very environmentally conscious.

    Cons

    Too many middle management layers. Have to be a part of the "clique" to advance. CEO pretends to care about employees. No loyalty. If you've been there more than 10 years, look out!

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the office politics.
