    Pros

    Great training for Managers. In process of undergoing a major update of their facilities in Benton Harbor. Very nice environment to work in. Culture is very family friendly and it is possible to have a good work / life balance. Values and leadership model are embedded in everything people do. Many opportunities to work globally and across functions.

    Cons

    Not many other large companies in the immediate area. Career advancement can be a bit slow unless you aggressively pursue opportunities.

    Advice to Management

    Have a more defined career ladder and job descriptions. Sometimes it is difficult to know what experience is needed to move up or across functions or how decisions are made to fill those roles.

  10. Has good areas to work in and bad areas, like most companies. You can move around to find your place if you are patient

    Pros

    Lots of areas to work in engineering, like design, labs, technology, etc. Also can make lateral moves through several product categories.

    Cons

    Medical plan is expensive and complicated to maneuver if you want to get the most out of it.
    Some areas really have poor leadership with no good long term plans, but at least you can move around to other areas.

    Advice to Management

    Think longer term, figure out what the customer wants/needs 5 years from now so we can beat the competition, instead of matching what they have in the market today and staying behind them.

    Pros

    Solid benefit, OK if you are an engineer isolated from Marketing. They have some very cool products in the consumer goods space. Work like is well managed. Not many people work late.

    Cons

    Very relationship driven company. You will need to invest in your work relationships as much as technical delivery. At times, the relationship investment matters more than actual technical knowledge. The typical marketing teams are *very* short sighted and reactionary.

    Advice to Management

    Start holding the marketing teams accountable to long range plans and the research that is needed to development the plans. Way too much seat of the pants planning - but it gets sold based on the charisma of the marketing director.
