    Current Employee - Inside Sales Representative in Vancouver, BC (Canada)

    I have been working at BuildDirect full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    When starting with BuildDirect the work environment was super friendly and energetic. A fun atmosphere for sure. Although this has diminished quite a bit with their growth. C-level management keeps us in the loop with future direction of the company.

    Cons

    When I took the job the company was growing fast and they made it sound like there was a lot of good opportunities to grow within the company - although there really is not much room for growth within the sales team. Becoming a sales manager means that you are constantly putting out fires, and assisting the Inside Sales Reps when things go wrong, compensation as a manager is also much lower than what you can make as an Inside Sales Rep. Within my time, two managers requested to be demoted back to a regular sales rep. Their duties result in a disgruntled manager that would act inconvenienced any time you needed help.

    There is however opportunities to move to different departments, but there really is no monetary incentive to do so. Overall, I've been very disappointed with my time at BD. Morale within the team is low, and it is not what it used to be. From what I know, BC is not profitable, and many areas of the company are haemorrhaging cash. Suggestions to mitigate this or improve processes are usually brushed off and likely do not make it past the first level of management.

    BuildDirect is failing to innovate. All they are doing is trying new ideas on their site. If it fails, they pull it, if not, they keep it going. This is not innovation, but blind trial and error which is very worrisome.

    Also, on-boarding is almost non existent. You are thrown onto the phones after a couple days of shadowing employees (sometimes new employees who have not worked there longer than a few months).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Train your employees and try not to micromanage them. Let them work how they think best and lead your team by example. Incentivize them through positive reinforcement, and boost morale/performance through focusing/verbalizing on the individual's strengths.
