    I worked at Briggs Equipment full-time

    Pros

    They offer insurance, after a normal waiting period. They have a strong parent company, in Sammons Corp, to keep the company above water.

    Cons

    NO 401K plan. Very little training. Leadership is self-focused and often useless.
    Just an Employee Owned Stock Program (ESOP) for future needs - which only becomes valid after you've survived 3 years with the company. Most don't reach 3 years, despite being talented and dedicated, because of the company culture.

    Leave, for any reason: non-performance (which is a constantly moving target with them), brutal treatment, or they just decided to change policy for a region... you'll be railroaded. For ANY reason, you will lose your job and anything you have accomplished towards an ESOP benefit is gone.

    The internal philosophy reminds many of a paramilitary attitude. They pride themselves on it, and are quite deceitful in the their presentation of opportunities to be had, and the real facts.

    Yet, they present themselves as a benevolent entity.
    They do give to charities, but I watched them do so to earn their business (basically a bribe), or gain a tax write-off. NOT out of benevolence.

    Leadership is often either non-existent, brutish, untalented or shows extreme favoritism.
    Or, all of the above. It's shocking at times, once experienced. Morale is low among the majority of employees in most markets. Again, it's the lack of real leadership and the brutish behavior of management trying to CYA.

    Yes. The Mad Men mentality of the '60's is alive and well at Briggs Equipment, and all the way to the heart - and top -of Briggs Equipment. Which is why they can't catch or beat their competition. Owning many locations doesn't mean being good at what you do - it just means the parent company had the bucks to buy into it. All attitude, and woe to anyone internally who disagrees.

    But they do feed off the funds of the Sammons Corporation... so it keeps them in business.and financially strong (on paper).

    Rumor is the goal to artificially increase gross profit, then sell the company out of the Sammons portfolio. Just a rumor, but more often heard during my time with the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Discard deciding members of management, and support your own people instead of yourselves. Too many very good people being sacrificed by this company with it's archaic methods and attitudes.
    We seriously doubt anyone will listen, so no need to add anything more.
