    I worked at Continental Research

    Pros

    Builing relationships that last a lifetime

    Cons

    No support from management and COO feels that he knows everything about sales but never sold anything. Pricing is high and no contract business. Scope of business has changed and company refuses to change with it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Rethink your end result and remember that money is not always the prize but Sales Reps pay all salaries and expenses and moral needs to be increased.

    I worked at Continental Research full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Products are good but support is non existent

    Cons

    Management is only interested in self gratification and they have no experience in the sales process. Very overpriced and treatment like you are a puppet and they are the puppet masters

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn the industry fully before you deal out the criticisms. Unless you can go out and open new accounts and build relationships, do not dictate to professionals how to close sales.

    I worked at Continental Research

    Pros

    There are no pros to discuss

    Cons

    This is without a doubt the most unethical and non-caring business I have ever seen. The management will lie to you and then not stand behind you. If offered a position, do not take it! Stay as far as possible away from this company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do what you say you're going to do. Stop the lies!

    Great company, great people except for one trainer who is over AL, MS

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at Continental Research full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Good company, great people at the corporate office, great commissions

    Cons

    The only con I have is regarding the "trainer" over AL/MS. CRC really is a great company and I don't want to sound like I have an axe to grind with CRC because I do not . It's a wonderful company to work for, and 99% of the employees do their job and are really wonderful people to know, but I had the unfortunate experience of being trained by a man who is not in management but he was the guy who was supposed to show me the ropes. I found out later that he wanted CRC to hire one of his acquaintances instead of me from a competitive company. I got the job but my boss was against me from the first day because of his affiliation with our competitor.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    No advice for management.....keep doing what you're doing.
