After looking at the abbreviated Stone Finch organizational chart, 2008, which is give in the case study. We can see three distinct groups. These groups were the employees of Water Products Division, Solutions Division and the Subsidiaries. The Subsidiaries division was recently formed in 2004. The communication between all the divisions was very less. It looked like more importance was given to the employees of the Subsidiaries as they were directly in contact with Billings. The reward structure of the organization looked bias towards the employees of the subsidiaries as they were given stocks of the company. The reward system for the rest of the divisions was not mentioned in the case study. The decisions making of the company was much centralised. The culture of Stone Finch can be seen after analysing their first company jam, given the case study. Only 27% of employees participated in the company jam. The full corporation of all the employees was missing. It can also be seen that on one hand most of the employees of the Subsidiaries had posted good comments. On the other hand comments of the employees from the Solutions and the Water divisions were not as good as their counterparts. There comments distinctly addressed the flaw in the culture, why the employees of the Solutions division were dissatisfied and why the employees of the Water division were dissatisfied. Employees of each division of the company had different attitudes.
