    I have been working at DuluxGroup full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Lots of fantastic people in this company at all levels including senior management, a strong focus on growth and achievement and a good strategy around people development. Good work/life balance focus and a serious approach to employees safety is evident across the business. Solid history of financial performance and good leadership from board / CEO level.

    Cons

    Bias and lack of inclusion is an issue that needs tackling. In recent times, major shareholders interests have been consistently placed before employees interests, impacting culture and climate. Excessive politics and oppressive bureaucracy can make this a difficult place to find workplace harmony. The corporate hierarchy also aids in predilections and old fashioned favoritism.

    Pros

    - Good workplace culture, still has and old school feel. - Good business values, with clear goals and expectations set. - Beginning to invest in technology and unify as a conglomerate.

    Cons

    - Segregation between business units, and functions, making it difficult to change and implement new ideas. - Projects constantly delayed and deprioritised due to cross functional politics. - There is no standard, it is hard to find information, everyone has a different opinion.

    Advice to Management

    - Continue to invest in technology, look for ways to use and manage data. - Work on documenting processes, and create a standard for all business units to follow. - Bring in people with functional experience, and allocate project managers that are empowered to make decisions.

    Pros

    Friendly workplace overall. Nice labs and equipment. Nice coworkers. Decent employee share plan. Good health and insurance benefits. Nice innovation centre in Clayton.

    Cons

    Politics and political correctness makes workplace intolerable and make most people leave after a while. Not taking innovation seriously causes innovative thinkers suffer and eventually leave. Marketers rule the place and kill innovative ideas without giving it second thoughts. Too many mid-level managers. Disconnected business sectors make it difficult to align objectives. Useless HR deparment, full of arrogant staff...

    I worked at DuluxGroup full-time

    Pros

    Multiple brands fall under Dulux Group providing a variety of products and stakeholders to work with.

    Cons

    Clayton location. No career progression. The more innovative projects get pushed out to 3rd party agencies meaning internal staff get stuck with BAU type work.

    Advice to Management

    Train your managers to actively look after and provide ongoing opportunities for their staff.
