    Pros

    I enjoyed most I worked w/especially my line leaders. They gave me opportunity to advance.

    Cons

    The long hrs and being called in on days off. Also being underappreciated by the big bosses...(though the line leaders were awesome and made up for it a lot)

    Advice to Management

    Pay more attention to your workers and their needs and wants. They gave good ideas yet those in charge didn't want to listen. And people got frustrated and quit. You would've kept more people if you' listen to your employees.

    Pros

    Great Brands. Great business reporting system. Good training system

    Cons

    Senior Management team is too political. Favorites are fast tracked even though they are not the most qualified. Too much emphasis is put on interviews rather than work and accomplishments to date

    Advice to Management

    Innovation in your brands instead of just cost cutting overhead would be wise

    Pros

    Benefits, competitive salary, global mobility if that is what you're looking for. Flexible time off and a decent bonus structure if you can make it to EICP.

    Cons

    Bureaucracy at its prime. Put your best lips on cause if your not kissing up, you might as well forget that next promotion. This is a marketing company, everything else is currently being outsourced to India in order to fund their growth because they can't seem to get their cost structure right. Severe spending inefficiencies in capex. New restructuring is so uprooting it is leaving loose ends.

    Advice to Management

    Show a little appreciation for the people who made this company tick for so long, you are only hurting yourself further because now that wisdom is out the door no matter how many work activity analyses you perform.
