    Pros

    Well established large publically traded company. Multiple divisions across the US and Europe. Many opportunities to advance. A leader in the Direct Market industrial products division.

    Cons

    Long hour work week for management expected. Easy to be considered just another number. Size,complexity and growth through acquisition make it difficult to operate across divisions.

    Advice to Management

    Strive to eliminate outdated legacy systems, homogenize divisions, invest in and retain human assets, and invest in the future to keep pace with competition.
