Strong global brands. Strong industry presence. Engaging associates. Slightly innovative, willing to work with retailers to collaborate, partner, invest in win win outcomes.
Work life balance is non existent. Heavy work loads and not enough head count to support sales teams. Upper management hires outside consultants to come in and reduce management spans/layers, piling more responsibility on the sales managers. Also only a chosen few will get the opportunity to move to upper management, and the majority of sales managers can only look for lateral moves.
Advice to Management
Look to replicate best in class companies sales team and sales support infrastructures. If the sales people are bogged down with internal processes, they can't be in front of the customer selling. Upper management needs to be more approachable.
