Pros

Perks and management were great. I loved the culture and all the people I worked with. They still offer a pension and 401K, which is rare these days.

Cons

Compensation could have been much better. Columbus is a small town and the mill barons like to keep it that way. They keep everyone from job hoping and force lower salaries all around.

Advice to Management

You are a very profitable company, release the purse strings and pay your staff better. This could be an even better company, much like its wonderful history, you have lost something special in the past 5 years.

    As an independent sales agent, the company makes it seem easy to earn a living. It isn't!

    Pros

    Training staff and management are there to support you. Product training is great. Great products.

    Cons

    After training, you are pretty much thrown to the wolves. It is very difficult to obtain leads, and secure appointments. More in the field sales training is needed by successful agents. Need a better equipment sharing program. New agents cannot afford a laptop with the necessary tools and depending on how successful their District Manager is, they may only have one laptop for several agents to share.

    Advice to Management

    They need a better transitioning program especially for agents that are new to commissioned sales. Maybe paid training, and then a tiered transitioning from salary to commission only as the agent progresses.
