    Sales dominates over everything else

    A very conservative, but professional atmosphere

    Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) Abbott Park, IL (US)

    ProsThere are many resources (office equipment, space, technology) that allow you to do your job well. If you go above and beyond and have a strong relationship with upper management, you can get ahead.

    ConsIt is common for employees to hold endless amounts of meetings, which in more cases, do not really move us towards a goal. Very conservative (typical of industry) which holds back creativity.

    Advice to Senior ManagementUpper management should be more comfortable not having the urge to hold meetings that provide no value.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
