    Frustrating. Very high turnover. Great potential of a company but they're blowing it my micromanaging.

    Pros

    They bring in lunches a lot; senior managers aren't around a lot so you can skip out early some days

    Cons

    Compensation is poor. You have to work there a really long time to get anything to survive. Their sales processes are really behind the times. No one does cold calling any more. They still rely on cold calling, trade shows, mailings, and other decades-old techniques to drum up business. They don't really embrace social media, digital marketing, and all the "new" ways to market and sell a company and their products. And don't even think about getting a bonus. Non-sales people's bonuses are tied to sales and profit. A sneeze will blow your bonus chances. Sales reps, meanwhile, since they're getting commissions, they get bonuses regardless of sales and profit since it's tied to individual sales. That turns off a lot of people and they have high turnover in both sales and non-sales employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop micromanaging. Let your sales reps do their thing and give them the freedom to do their job. Stop worrying about how your private equity owners (stop calling them "partners"--they own you) will think of the minutiae--they don't care. Make it a place you want people to work at; you might not have such high turnover. Things haven't been the same since Premier Farnell sold you. Think about it--PF sold off their only profitable division?
