    Pros

    Great organization filled with employees that enjoy what they do. In order to achieve excellence you need to understand it takes hard work and dedication. Beacon allows its employees the opportunity to grow and excel.

    Cons

    Hard work and long hours

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Acknowledge and reward current employees for achievements they have accomplished.

    Pros

    Benefits were good as healthplan was best I have had. 401K match is standard within industry.

    Cons

    No loyalty among co-workers and obvious favoritism from management based upon brown-nosing more than merit. hard work and exceeding expectations go unnoticed if you are not playing the game. Payscale does not properly reward sales people based on sales volume. Too worried about the stock value of the company and shareholders.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Properly incentivise your sales force or you will continue to lose your best employees. Take a stronger look at your management staff and see what value they truly provide.

    Revolving door at corporate headquarters. Lacking proper leadership and positive employee relations

    • Senior Management
    • Culture & Values
    • Career Opportunities
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee  in  Herndon, VA
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Herndon, VA

    Pros

    Company recognizes time of service with various awards and gifts for employees who have been here longer than 5 years. PTO and sick days are separated and floating holidays are available for use throughout the year. Training courses available for "rising stars" across the company. Leadership courses available for recognized employees.

    Cons

    Corporate ruling is based on Fear, Hidden Agendas, Dishonesty, Politics, Secrets, and Manipulation, spread from the Top Down.

    There is no trust within the HR department at corporate. There is a lack of professionalism, lack of discipline, lack of ethics, and favoritism, which is visible to all employees except for management. Revolving door, people do not last here. No loyalty to company, people are here to develop themselves professionally, not necessarily for the progression of Beacon.

    There is a surplus of new employees where they are not needed, and a lack of key employees in other functional areas that could use the additional manpower. Too many control freaks and micromanaging, gives no room for autonomy. No recognition for a job well done. Team mates anticipating one another to make a wrong move. No sense of oneness.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Value your employees and stop focusing strictly on the numbers. Pay attention to corporate values and culture amongst employees.

    Pros

    Beacon is an aggressive company that wants to expand and do it the right way. Currently they have some young leaders who are very ambitious. If you are looking for a great company that will support you Beacon would be a good fit.

    Cons

    Some of the upper management is horrible with communication, returning calls and emails, and this in turn affects business and customer relationships.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Perks: Cell Phone, Laptop, Gas Card, Vehicle Reimbursement, 401k, Insurance, salary, commission.

    Not what they seem

    • Work/Life Balance
    • Senior Management
    • Culture & Values
    • Career Opportunities
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee  in  Northeast, NY
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Northeast, NY

    Pros

    Not many. There are a few good people at this company; but, for the most part, the culture is mediocre at best.

    Cons

    Little-to-no follow-through on employee concerns; disingenuous; unprofessional and clumsy in many aspects; indecisive; too blue collar for anyone who's accustomed to a more polished, white-collar work environment w/individuals from more higher-educated background and global experience. A lot of talk about ethical values, but not in practice.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Not willing to share advice as management wouldn't understand or "get" it.

    Not a very positive place to work.

    Pros

    Corporate resources. Good pricing that helps to be competitive.

    Cons

    Don't care much about customer service or employee satisfaction. Only focused on corporate profits. Don't seem to have any corporate goal or purpose that gives meaning to job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to what your customers' needs are and focus less on P&L numbers. Customer satisfaction will lead to greater profits anyway. Give outside reps the autonomy to be more successful.

    Great company with a lot of growth

    • Comp & Benefits
    • Work/Life Balance
    • Senior Management
    • Culture & Values
    • Career Opportunities
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee  in  Herndon, VA

    Pros

    Friendly staff and management that empowers their employees and gives them the tools to succeed. There is a lot of freedom and flexibility and employees are given a long leash to explore new opportunities for the company. Everyone is treated as equals regardless of age, tenure or title.

    To put it simply, Beacon is a blue collar work ethic in a white collar environment. There are no games or politics in the office and everyone is doing what is best for the company, not themselves. This is such a refreshing place to work and it makes coming in everyday enjoyable.

    Cons

    The volume of work is a lot and, at times, can be a little overwhelming. However, all of the work is important to the operation company and none of it is "busy work". I also think this problem can and will be solved as more people are hired to help take on some of the work load.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep hiring good, honest people who buy in to our value system. Don't grow too fast and always stay true to your core values.

    Pros

    Competitive pay. Good Benefits, Could be a great company if they get more organized.

    Cons

    Too much Micro Managing, Too many useless policies. Care more about numbers, than employees and customers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop micro managing and let people do their jobs, also with out enough employees, your service to the customers will suffer. Stop spending dollars to save pennies.

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    Pros

    Great pay, great benefits. You do your job and do it well it gets noticed. Management takes us where we need to go for the business to succeed. Wouldn't want to work anywhere else. Its a place you want to go to everyday. You do need to be adaptable to the changes for success, you cant be afraid of change in the work environment

    Cons

    There aren't any that I can think of and something that would bother one person might not bother another

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the great work

    Great leadership team. Open communication. Strong financial performance and growth trend. Lots of opportunity for growth if you are willing to relocate. Very solid benefit package. Strong company values...small company feel with the financial support of a big company.

    Similar to previous posts, budgets are tight but it allows the company to perform and be successful.
