    Pros

    you can make a LOT of money very fast if you are willing to work for it. Commission based = the harder you work the better the results in your pocket.

    Cons

    Very competitive which equals to fighting amongst your coworkers for those customers. Hours are very long. Lots of outdoor work. requires a certain personality

    Current Employee - Sales Representative  in  Lisle, IL
    Current Employee - Sales Representative in Lisle, IL

    Pros

    Good compensation in the "busy" months (December and April through August).
    Personable coworkers and friendly atmosphere
    Excellent customers who will give you referrals if they like you.

    Cons

    Long hours, long days. Some days up to 12 hour shifts with 30 minute break or less
    Very little money made in the "slow" months (winter is rough!)
    Angry customers every once in a while
    No room for growth into a new position - just growth in your own position

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be a leader to your employees, not just a boss. Show them where they can improve and let them know what they're doing well at. Only way to grow is with guidance!

    Current Employee - Engineering Technician in Raymond, OH

    Pros

    -Job security. This company will take care of you in that aspect as long as you take care of it.
    -Pay. The pay is good...not great but good. Sure you could make more in Michigan but if you want to stay in central Ohio, the pay is good for this area.

    Cons

    Hours. As others have stated the hours can be long and brutal. Also, it is very hard to plan your personal life with these schedules.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You already know what is wrong, have the courage to address it and fix it.

    Current Employee - Lead Projects in Torrance, CA

    Pros

    Stable work. Friendly atmosphere. This is primarily a Windows development shop, but AIX, AS400, MVS, and some Mac application development.

    Cons

    Technology is not leading edge. Very conservative adopting new IT technology. IBM is primarily used for backend support. IBM India needs to improve responsiveness and skills.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Responsiveness to business needs is highest priority. More career opportunities would be great.

    Good intentions, but slow moving and conservative.

    Pros

    A genuinely well-intentioned company filled with good people.

    Cons

    Salaries are not competitive. Priorities for hiring are not in line with previous company values. Increasing reliance on contractors. Less focus on retaining core engineering talent, attracting and educating new engineering talent.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Remember what made Honda successful. Well engineered product combined with good sales and aftersales support. Exciting product developed by people that care about the product.

    Pros

    Money is not too bad and they are flexible with hours.

    Cons

    Not very prefessional, Management is petty and not willing to work with you. Learn on your own kind of environment where they dont know your last name.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take an interest to help employees grow and develop loyalty.
