DOOs at Accellent ?

    I'm considering a DOO opportunity at Accellent. They seem to have a pretty good story to tell. But i've picked up on what looks like a high turnover of DOOs at the company. What gives? Are they a good place to go, or are they simply a revolving door? Someone mentioned like 70% of their DOOs were changed out in the past year. Anyone have insight?

    They've closed factories and turned-over a lot of people during the past 3 years. Although, there has been stability at places such as the old Star Guide in Arvada. I guess that it depends on the location but being a VC owned --Blackstone? -- group, they are ruthless in delivering their quarterly numbers -- whatever it takes.

    They're not ruthless. They're clueless. As a DOO you'll be tasked with aimless goals and spirited buzz words lifted from pirated Process excellence manuals. Dean Schauer is a putz and managed to pimpoint his ass kissing to perfection - namely KKR executives. The fact that you'd consider this opportunity says you're clueless or a loser - in which case a perfect fit.

    Very high turnover. Ask who the longest serving DOO is? Hint - the last name is the same as the EVP of Manufacturing. All other DOOs have been turned over and over and over. Arvada has had five DOOs in the last four years.

    The DOO concept is really inappropriate for the "matrixed" org structure that the individual site mmorphed into. They used to be real VP/ GM roles and were descoped by Ron Sparks long ago. No financial, engineering, project management, or quality functions reporting into the DOO. So, you have the supervisors for manufacturing reporting in- that sounds more like a DoNot than a DOO. Actually, its a DOO DOO role.
