    Former Employee - Account Executive in Portland, OR

    I worked at Criterion Brock full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Great opportunity for sales professionals, easy to grow territory as marketshare is on the lower end of things, Regional support from national account reps

    Cons

    Lots of paperwork, hard to accomidate customer special requests or custom orders for popular brands, company' overall low inventory strucuture

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try on different shoes, focus on market share before expansion into new markets, make support staff step up and fulfill orders and maximize time of field sales by letting them sell and spend less time on reports and paperwork

    Pros

    Really nice people, great co workers.

    Cons

    Management's lack of respect for co workers. Low salaries and no interest by Management to retain the best and brightest. Lip service made to support staff, but all talk and no action.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Sales is not the indicator of growth, profit is. Work with a low profit margin isn't profitable. Start looking at the bottom line after job is complete and make policy based on that.

    Pros

    Friendly co-workers
    Decent benefits
    Good location
    Positive changes have been attempted within the last couple years

    Cons

    Poor management
    Poor work environment
    Executives ignore non-sales staff
    The corporate structure/process needs to be re-worked (from the ground up if possible)
    High turn over rate
    Multiple absenteeism

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat (all) employees as assets not expenses. The morale is terrible and needs to be addressed ASAP if you want to stop losing employees.

    Pros

    Very nice people from top to bottom. Opportunity for good compensation for Account Exec job. I was consistently told to err on the side of customer service and always do the right thing.

    Cons

    I honestly cannot think of any. I'm no longer with the company for personal reasons, nothing to do with the company and would consider working there again and would refer friends.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work!

    Pros

    Nicest people you will ever meet working there.

    Cons

    Salaries are so out of line with market rate it is obscene. Not sure how they will compete for good employees when economy improves. Building is old, many employees supply themselves with space heaters to stay warm, workstations outdated and cause ergonomic issues. No training budgets, management is completely out of touch with what makes a company of choice for employees, or they don't care.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Create an environment in which people can comfortably do their work, give them the tools and supplies to succeed.
