    It is a great company to work i have learned so many things about the market and how to develop the brands of the corporation on the trade.Also the relations of my peers are excelent.

    Cons

    The corporation in essence its very very good,but some individuals does not match the corporate basics,and Human resources have so many push in another deparments as sales and Marketing .That create a serious dilema in charge of power

    Advice to Management

    My humble advise to the management is that every deparment must work independbly from human Resources Dept.

    not very fast paced, not a great company to start your career off at but its a good place to end up once you have settled down with a family

    Advice to Management

    invest in employees a little more

    Pros

    Great team, benefits. A good company to build a career.

    Cons

    Sales goal are not clear. The sales objectives are always changing as they should but are not accurate to reality, form one month to another your sales objective can increase in a 30% or more.

    Advice to Management

    Try to understand that the modern channel and the traditional channel are different. Also be aware of the benefits of really incentivizing your sales team if the sales goal are impossible to reach people wont sale.

    Pros

    The company places a great deal of emphasis on safety, and having clean facilities. They also have a great fervor for training, if it has something to do with your job. They also have safety product giveaways each month that a facility is safety-incident free.

    Cons

    The management, many times don't know what they want, nor what they are doing, and as a result change course mid-stream. This is all despite what employee plans, long and short-term, are. It make any planning moot, in many cases. And it destroys management-employee relations, which take a long time to cultivate.

    Advice to Management

    Please get a clue, sooner, rather than later. You need better succession planning at all levels. And once you are committed to something, stick it out to the end. Don't change gears, in the middle. You affect the plans for a lot of other people when you do that.

    Pros

    Great benefits and very good training. Stable income with little growth without being willing to move

    Cons

    Was a tremendous company to work for but several years ago it started to slide. Management made changes to sales leadership and go to market strategies and the results are showing in the form of bad results.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your team, not the consultants.
