Pros – Good values. Aggressive. Great leadership from Mannington
Cons – Growth, lack of upward mobility.
Advice to Senior Management – Keep pushing forward.
Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
Pros – Great products, local production. Employees in three different locations. Interesting commercial customers.
Cons – Headquarter is in the UK. Ever so often a manager swoops in to bring the latest strategies for the U.S. to implement. May not be the best modus to maximize profits here.
Advice to Senior Management – More autonomy for the U.S. Change sales model from large direct sales force to regional distributors.
Pros – Great product performance. Company produces product in the United States and allows for a sales position that can't be matched.
Cons – New leadership in the last year has tweaked the system to show a profit margin that isn't realistic in today's economy. Normal business costs are being cut in an effort to shower better margin for the investment group.
Advice to Senior Management – Stop treating our customers as widgets and realize that the changes we have made alienate sales reps from repeat business. There is no easy come easy go in today's market.
