    I have been working at Airgas full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    We sell a wide variety of products

    Cons

    Account 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 ManagementAdvice

    Take 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.

    Pros

    Good 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.

    Cons

    Many 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 ManagementAdvice

    Share more information with the capapble employees. This makes them feel like they are a part of something bigger.

    Pros

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

    Cons

    can be unorganized at times, inter-departmental struggles

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I 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.
