    Pros

    The bistro was the best thing

    Cons

    They cater to millennials, so if you’re over 40, you can’t go anywhere. Mismanagement,
    Crazy workload, and constant changes.
    CEO just retired after her messed it up.

    Advice to Management

    Train the kids you hire to be better .

    Pros

    Ok pay and good benefits (401k, profit sharing)

    Cons

    Long work weeks, lots of experience has left, moral is low, not much opportunity to advance.

    Review recent changes, develop a real work/life balance, quit cost cutting and begin investing, and find opportunities for employees to change and excel.

    Pros

    A week of paid vacation when you start.
    Good rate for starting out, do provide shift premiums.

    Cons

    No pay raises.
    Work weekends in areas that isnt supposed to work weekends.
    Pay isn't always fair.

    Advice to Management

    Give employees an incentive to stay there. Stop making pay cuts when employees already feel underpaid.

    Pros

    Job security

    Stable industry

    Opportunity for business growth

    Competitive benefits

    Competitive compensation

    Growing Business

    Cons

    Poor leadership structure

    Nepotism has allowed incompetency to climb into middle corporate management

    Clique-ish

    Disastrous current financial game plan

    Terrible inability to expedite capital acquisition projects

    Obsolete manufacturing equipment has begun failing regularly, with no replacement plan on hand. This cannot be stressed enough: Useful lifecycles have been exceeded, and equipment is failing in ways that damage manufacturing

    Awful customer management. Sale throws manufacturing under a bus all the time.

    Unreasonably high financial expectations for the business, especially in the face of sluggish global growth.

    Complete elimination of innovative talent at the corporate level. They're dying the slow death because of it.

    Innovative products with real potential to make and change markets.

    Maintain resolve and direction. Know who you are and act like the leaders you are.

    Pros

    Freedom to fail, flexible, more agile than many large companies. As I see reviews of newer people and compare with people that have been around a long time, I get the sense that as a long time employee, I can put things in better perspective. Compared to what we had pre-Obamacare, our medical was very good. As good as public employees get and better. After we became Obamacare compliant that benefit went south. You see many new people say that the pay and benefits are good, and you see older people say they aren't that great, but they are blaming the wrong group. The newer employees are comparing recent experience to the new employer.
    The plant people and most of your peers will be great to work with. Very helpful, friendly and genuine. They are also professionals that know their stuff, and will help each other. It's hard to get hired, but having fortune 500 experience on your resume is good, and there is a lot to learn.

    Cons

    Constant state of flux. People in Diversey had their lives turned inside out. It was a terrible acquisition and a vanity project for BH, that did not fit the company from the start. I don't blame those people for being down on the company. Depending on where and what division you join, you can have a very different experience in the company. Now they have a shiny new corporate campus full of whiz-kids that have never been on the floor to observe what a manufacturing plant is like, and we now have layers on layers second guessing every move.

    Advice to Management

    If you hire a manager to manage something, let him or her manage it. There is an increasing amount of analytics micro managing every aspect of every function. You will never be able to run all the operations down to the last detail from your ivory tower.

    Pros

    The company honors Flexibility and the people are great. The culture is also relaxed and friendly. It was a great place to work.

    Cons

    It's Hard to get promoted because of the office politics. If management focused on employee morale things could be great.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to all employees and not just managers
