    I have been working at DXP Enterprises full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    DXP is a decent company to work for. There are definitely some opportunities for advancement as the company continues to grow. Overall I feel I've been treated well and have been lucky to have had good supervisors that seem to really care.

    Cons

    Raises are tough to come by. 2 weeks vacation time is good at first but then it takes 10 years to get the 3rd week

    Advice to Management

    As with most larger companies there is a need for management to better understand what goes on in the trenches


  2. DXP as a large company has lost many of its values that made it successful as a smaller company

    Pros

    Good hard working people that want to make a difference for their customers

    Cons

    Very political environment with all decisions being made at the top level, for an industrial distribution company they move very slowly when it comes to taking care of the customer.

    Pros

    The pay is sort of steady - if you don't speak up around the wrong people.

    Cons

    The management team, specifically the upper management, utilize their positions in the company to abuse (verbally, psychologically) their employees. They taunt you with false-superiority complexes and treat us like we're not part of the working environment. The company is filled with "good ol boy" networking and if you're not a racist you're not involved in their world.

    Advice to Management

    Send the management to training classes to learn how to manage.

    Pros

    It's a paycheck. Nothing else positive that I can think of.

    Cons

    Horrible leadership, benefits, and management.

    Advice to Management

    Get your act together.

    Pros

    I honestly can't think of any.

    Cons

    Several opportunities to advance, but they don't want to pay. I've seen several good people (including myself) leave. Management is a joke. All the "higher ups" are related to each other. They only look out for their relatives. They are unfair and greedy. The company in a whole is not bad, it's the people that are running it that I do not approve of. I can only pray that they one day come to their senses.

    Advice to Management

    Give honest hard working people a true raise. $.15 is not going to cut it.

    Pros

    DXP started in 1908 and has grown to a $1.5B company due to the aggressive nature of taking risks and pushing the envelop of organic growth and acquisitions. We have a "work hard, play hard" type culture where people are responsible for a job to be done and then left to get it done. With many branch offices, acquisitions and goals, DXP is not for the people who demand a lot of structure. The sales talent is comprises of financially motivated people who have a competitive spirit and have technical depth. Hard to find all three in one person and we have sales development tools and resources to aid in getting the best performance from the willingness of the employee

    Cons

    We can improve on tracking career development of employees.


  9. Don't Trust This Company. One day you are given a promotion and the next day they do away with your job!

    Pros

    Working from home was great. Worked long hours but loved the job.

    Cons

    Management keeps you in the dark. A lot of Back-Stabbing by lower level employees.

    Advice to Management

    You need to control the lying and back-stabbing. Employees feel they are always in the dark---not knowing what is going to happen next.

    Pros

    Worked from home, paid for the vacation i was owed

    Cons

    My manager got into an argument with his boss. He told his boss he would no longer travel to my territory to support me, NOBODY told me this. I was on an island for 10 months without any support and when my numbers dipped, I was dropped. They do not have a single billing system, all of their supplies are shipped from all their different local suppliers so your customers are confused and don't want to deal with this. As a result, your customers get ticked at you and drop you. Enter at your own risk should have been how it was stated when I entered those offices for the first time.

    Advice to Management

    Get your acts together! Stop expanding and start organizing!
