You’ve heard the phrase that bigger isn’t always better, and this is especially true in business. Big corporations can be seriously lacking in areas like customer service, communications with clients and even marketing efforts as compared to their smaller company counterparts.
When Sears decided to merge with Kmart in 2005 to try and diversify what the company had to offer, the public did not agree. In the years following, Sears’ revenue dropped over 10% while competitors (Target, Wal-Mart, etc.) continued to grow rapidly.
Even more disastrous were the merges of both AOL and Time Warner and Quaker and Snapple. In both merges, there were major mishaps. Relationships were severed, missteps in marketing and communication happened and the effects of both failed mergers were seen in more than annual revenue and profits.
As is the case with so many large-scale company merges, important things like customer service, price-points and even the handling of information ran into all kinds of problems.
