    I worked at Jacuzzi Brands full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Interesting product category. Nice offices. Reasonable commute from Orange County most of the time.

    Cons

    Where to start...the place is run by a small clique of people that worked together at a former company. They operate like a cult. They concentrate power among themselves. They take credit for the team's accomplishments and blame outsiders for their bad decisions. Why have so many been fired? There are some talented people who operate outside of the clique but are subject to double standards, back stabbing, ridicule or simply being ignored.

    Advice to Management

    Advice to the private equity sponsors: spend time trying to understand what is really happening here instead of accepting the explanations of senior management.

    I have been working at Jacuzzi Brands full-time

    Pros

    Nice fancy office with a farmers market on Wednesdays!

    Cons

    Somehow this national brand is run by leaders who either don't live in the state or seem to always have something better to do that involves their kids, yet there is zero tolerance for any mid or lower level employees to ever do the same. Work remotely?- No! Leave early for a child's school performance?- "That's what grandparents are for?" (TRUE STORY!) Classic do as I say, not as I do. It feels like senior management is all waiting for the company to be bought out, no one puts any heart into anything anymore. They're obviously all very well compensated, flaunting their possessions and purchases everywhere while most of the office brown bags it daily.

    Advice to Management

    Business 101 would be a great start. It's unbelievable how poorly this brand is managed.

    Pros

    Modern office, great fellow employees, everyone respects the workplace and each other

    Cons

    Deeply misinformed middle management. Shockingly inept at hiring and firing practices - attendance policy enforced radically different per person - with some fired with a 3-lates and out, and others being okay to take off hours, days, weeks, months on a whim with zero repercussions. The norm seems to be - if they need you right now you're golden, if your work doesn't have an upcoming deadline - you're likely to be let go and they don't lay people off they fire them abruptly. The HR personnel are some of the best in the business, and they have to be to put up with and defend the company from the poor business decisions and constant liability invoking choices made. We saw a remote channel manager position get filled and fired 3 times in 3 months. Some Presidents live in other states and report to work less than once per month; some channel managers also live in other states. meanwhile someone needing to work from home for a few days for surgery is told no.

    Advice to Management

    It is impossible to get people without introspection to look at themselves and see what they can do - they only look down the hill, and impose stricter controls and policing on subordinates. This culture of blaming down has been a detriment - your offices are silent joyless places. Get your act together, decide what and where each department should work and whom they should work with - trim the management fat who just push around cells on spreadsheets all day and leave early to pick up their kids all the time.

    I worked at Jacuzzi Brands full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    the time i spent here helped me learn what not to do in my next job...

    Cons

    Some old school people are just set in there ways... there is no way to change them as they think they know it all...

    Advice to Management

    legacy people from the Sundance/Jacuzzi need to change or leave. New blood will keep product, and process clean and easy. it's a hot tub- make it fun....stop over thinking.... bring back the building of the tubs to the USA... stop focusing on Canada as the dollar will remind the current way. you got lucky with the Canada growth when the dollar was weak.

    Its lack of structure allows you to come up with creative solutions.

    Cons

    Very hard to get promotions with reasonable salary increase.

    Pros

    Management was always supportive and informative. The doors were always open to discuss concerns, opinions, and ways to improve service. Product education is valued. Management doesn't hover over you, but instead instills confidence to make choices. People are friendly, education and growth are encouraged.

    Cons

    The housing market determines company growth and expansion. It can be unstable at times.

    Pros

    Some staff members were friendly.

    Cons

    Poor management, no proper support to help members grow in their careers.

    Advice to Management

    Learn the product fully and don't go back and forth on priorities, Made it very difficult for anyone to do and complete their tasks.

    Pros

    Great opportunity for a college graduate; and the was friendly and helpful. You are also working with other interns which is fun.

    Cons

    Lack of direction and organization. As an intern, you are to learn about specific careers - I don't feel like I gained knowledge of different roles and opportunities.
