    Pros

    Overall a good company to work for. Good benifits, fair compensation and decent quality of life benefits like vacation, personal time, stock option etc..

    Cons

    The commission structure was always being changed. A very nepotistic environment, if you underperformed and were in the right crowd you were untouchable regardless. Unable to be competitive with product pricing was a frequent issue.

    Advice to Management

    To be proactive rather than reactive. Be more reactive to local market climate. Management more concerned about their golden parachute than actually being productive and adding to overall profitability of the organization.
