    Pros

    Benefits were pretty good and ample time off, 3 weeks vacation to start.

    Cons

    Too many good, hardworking employees leave. Unfortunate, they could have gone far in the company had they just been treated fairly. Witnessed a lot of backstabbing, managers seem to look out for themselves, not their direct reports.

    Advice to Management

    Stand up for your employees, provide positive feedback every now and again.

    Pros

    Great brands. If you end up working for the right department there, you can secure a great job with great benefits and a decent work life balance. If you have children, it makes it easier to set those boundaries then if you are single. The company is involved in many wonderful philanthropic initiatives.

    Cons

    If you do not end up in the right department, you could end up burning the midnight oil for your entire stay. Set clear boundaries. The company is involved in many wonderful philanthropic initiatives, although their involvement is not altruistic. Roll is a sunny place for shady people.

    Advice to Management

    Obey the laws when it comes to hiring and firing. You cannot squeeze blood from a stone. 16 hour days doesn't increase productivity, the same amount of work is done, the rest is wasted.

    Pros

    Strategy group is a great place to start within the company. Great opportunities to directly provide help to business leaders on their toughest issues. Also, you have the potential to eventually take on more responsibility than you may deserve as a P&L owner.

    Cons

    Know what you want when you come in - otherwise you might get lost in the shuffle

    Advice to Management

    Reconsider compensation to continue attaining top talent

    Pros

    Great benefits & pays well
    Smart, hard working people
    Exciting environment & great products

    Cons

    Owners and the culture they create - you must agree or you risk being fired on the spot. Certainly never will be promoted if you disagree or argue with them - and they tell you that straight out. So everyone does what they think the owners want, and no one will tell them if they disagrees with their decisions. No one has any real power except the owners and the owners are constantly saying how they know the company will fall apart when they die - says they have a lot of faith in their executive staff, doesn't it?
    Unreasonable timelines - fast-paced is one thing, but this is ridiculous. Most folks don't last more than a year here. You either are fired or you move on before you burn out.

    Advice to Management

    Its all been said already, and they won't listen to it - bc they can't do anything about it. No one is going to tell the owners they need to create a better culture and value their employees more.

    Pros

    If you like working with smart people and thrive in a fast paced environment this is your place!

    Cons

    If you expect to be treated fairly or recognized for your efforts this is probably not your place

    Advice to Management

    It's all already been said, and it's all true...Management probably won't change here so set your expectations accordingly.
