      Pros

      Lots of oportunity for yes-men and do nothings. As long as you are happy having other people take credit for your good work while accepting the blame for their bad work, you will be happy here.

      Cons

      Local senior management has little understanding of the lighting industry and lies more frequently than I could believe. The"good-old-boys" club is strong here. I had vendors I had used for decades tell me that they would not give kickbacks to get projects when I told them I work for Zumtobel. The systems put l and processes are so convoluted they can only exist to hide embezzlement.

      Pros

      Many diverse skills are required so lots can be learned.

      Cons

      Not one bit of job satisfaction as poor planning and poor execution always result in poor quality and returned material. Hard work on your part is wasted.
