    Pros

    Excellent R&D, manufacturing and owner foresight.
    Manufacturing is almost all automated

    Cons

    Manufacturing is almost all automated
    Top management does not seem to recognize or reward the real talent, dedicated and loyal employees. Does not accept criticism well. Only hears what they wants to. Surrounded by yes persons now.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on the internal customers as well as the external ones.

    I have been working at Viega (More than a year)

    Pros

    Viega is a good company. It is on the move in the US market place. Pay is great. Benefits are great. It is an established company in Germany. The headquartered parent company in Germany has a great influence and has lead the company to great success.

    Cons

    USA Viega LLC is mismanaged from the top down. People in higher level management roles (not everyone but the majority) often transplanted from sales positions. Great people with good intentions but no concept of leading a global company. Unfortunately Viega's image is mainly unknown in the USA in comparison to their direct competitors. If you are reading this thinking, "Who is Viega?" you are in the majority of the US citizens. I bet you know who Kohler, Moen and American Standard are. Provide people with documentation and tools to do their jobs. Giving people information and time to implement changes. Decision making, implementation and transition take an executed effort by the entire company across board and not one department that bares the burden of the entire company.

    Advice to Management

    Hire and invest in people with upper Management experience. Stop promoting successful sales associates to positions they will inherently fail at. Leave them to what they do best - sale.
