    Pros

    Modern corporate office with all intentions of creating a great culture.

    Cons

    Weak leadership, constantly re-organizing and restructuring the company and personnel in an effort to improve the business. The real issue however is poor quality products launched by a weak leadership team.

    I have been working at TTI Floor Care North America Inc. full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great portfolio of established brands with history of design innovations. (Hoover, Oreck, Dirt Devil, Hoover Professional, AEG)

    1. Bagel Friday! :)

    2. Work from home remotely

    Cons

    Acquired VINTAGE brands that are lagging behind with innovation, engineering, and design quality. Large corporations such as TTI Group, acquire brands through mergers based on ROI, sales projections and EBIT.

    Acquired VINTAGE brands that are lagging behind with innovation, engineering, and design quality. Large corporations such as TTI Group, acquire brands through mergers based on ROI and projected EBIT.

    Several factors for TTI.
    1. Products designs ressemble competitors. (Especially Shark, Bissell, I-Robot) Home cleaning brands lack innovation or unique selling features. (Human Factors Engineering, ergonomics, product testing, focus groups and R&D-severely lacking)

    2. Product Line and Executive Management create products based on net cost and sales margins alone. Underperforming SKU's should be streamlined or discontinued in production. Value added features should be engineered into only the top performing SKU's.

    3. Capital is severely wasted in product development. Each division works in a silo without a process and clearly defined target or deadline. The target and deadline is based on an arbitrary launch date set by retailers. The Engineering Team is more efficient than other departments, such as Product Line, Industrial Design, and Marketing. (Engineering has processes and tollgates)

    4. No known innovation pipeline or technological road map.

    5. Switching product colors and replacing a badge is NOT innovation.

    6. Only a chosen few in the office have a voice. (This is a sink or swim organization)

    7. There is an overwhelming sense of anxiety by many employees, as office turnover is extremely high. (Rotating door, constant restructuring-Which is normal to the organization, just business as usual)

    8. Executives view employees as "worker bees" whom toil for their king and queen. The leadership team is unapproachable, as I said before, only a chosen few have a voice within the organization.

    9. A majority of employees previously worked at Newell Brands or Electrolux. (Who you know... NOT what you know)

    10. Leadership cannot see VALUE within their own employees. Perception is everything. As a professional, nothing is more frustrating than relaying quantitive information to management, whom ignore your data and projections. Only after a while, then you realize that leadership is inept. They're just winging it daily. However, my body of work must be raised onto a higher standard of objectivity and excellence.

    Advice to Management

    Be more efficient. Overall the organization is not aligned. Invest in hiring the right people. Retain and train them. Add value to your product by placing the consumer first. Start an innovation and technology roadmap. Listen to your employees, you'll be surprised where ideas and profitability comes from.
