    GET THAT SALE

    Account Manager (Current Employee)
    Los Angeles, CA

    ProsEasy going, so far not being micro-managed. Pay is comparably low unless you're in a good territory with a booming opportunity. Pretty lenient company with a strong market share.

    ConsAdvancement is tough. Not a lot of opportunity to move into mid level management or even upper level management due to lack of opportunity.

    Advice to Senior ManagementDon't have the employees do something morally unjust. Think of other small businesses before crushing them.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Sales

    Sales (Current Employee)

    ProsGood Coaching, Compensation is comparable to the industry. Good opportunities for advancement and career paths. The loyalty of your fellow workers is comforting and supportive especially as the economy was not performing well.

    ConsMany mixed signals and a lot of realigning. Clear strategy and objective would help the entire system know the common goal. Too much admin for street sales.

    Advice to Senior ManagementShare more information with the capapble employees. This makes them feel like they are a part of something bigger.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Horrible commission structure

    Account Manager (Current Employee)

    ProsWe sell a wide variety of products

    ConsAccount managers are paid on a 70/30 split with commission for over the quota sales. This sounded great when I signed up however I soon realized that the budget is entirely out of reach. I have signed an extremely large amount of business this year. However it does not seam to matter because I have not seen a dime in commission or even more than the 70% of my salary. Then to add insult to injury they already added all business that was in my pipeline to my next years goals. That's business that I have been working on and have not yet gotten. So of I can sign everything I've been working on plus 10% I will make my quota rather than all that new business going toward commission. If I was paid a low straight commission I would easily pull 6 figures. Instead I am living at poverty level

    Advice to Senior ManagementTake an interest in your people listen to those of us who are talking to the customers everyday. Take a look at the good ol boy system in upper management it is BAD for business.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Not a bad place to work

    Finance (Current Employee)
    Cleveland, OH

    ProsPay, benefits, job stability, opportunity to learn the industry, room to move around

    Conscan be unorganized at times, inter-departmental struggles

    Advice to Senior ManagementI would like to see more resources available for personal development. Online training is nice, but actual human interaction would be better. For a company of this size, I think it would be appropriate for HR to offer quarterly seminars focused on personal career development.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Customers are important to them.

    Process Cylinder (Former Employee)
    Lenexa, KS

    ProsEnjoyed the employees. Employees will help trained very nice. Listen and pay attention. Employees are pro customer service. Very proud of work.

    ConsBehind on orders. Long hours and a lot of standing, but if and when you get use to it its a good place to work. Team lead more training on supervision. The team lead over reacts over minor things. Could make new comers feel inferior.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThese employees need more money. Airgas employees are very dedicated, good people.
