    Current Employee - Territory Sales Manager

    I have been working at Phonak full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Top of industry products and innovation. Excellent customer service. Senior management gives sales team the opportunity to think outside the box for solutions. The current culture of the company is making a drastic change for the better. If it continues on this path I only see good things to come. Total income is fantastic when you are at or above goal.

    Cons

    Most (if not all) of the regional sales management team lack initiative and emotional/creative intelligence. Compensation plan and territories change yearly. They have a tendency to promote from outside the company rather than within and unfortunately I have not seen any changes to that motto in the recent years. Salaries are low. Travel and Expense budget is pathetic.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Training for the immediate management team. Also there may need to be some changes. I strongly feel that some of the managers are in the best position for their skill set.

    Interview Details

    Interviewed for the position with 6 individuals. Felt extremely good about being offered the position that the company had placed ads for. Expressed my interest in the position and they expressed interest in me, only to be told that the company STILL NEEDED PERMISSION TO HIRE ME. Clearly their "ducks were not in a row!"
