    Pros

    Good training, love the people, not heavy in micro managing, give you space and time to learn industry. Good support system. Great benefits.

    Cons

    Very difficult sales cycle. Very few competitors with long, established contracts make turn overs almost impossible. Most of my time is spent qualify prospects rather than negotiating sale. Set pricing may conflict with territory's average market price. Offering doesn't include industry accessories like most competitors. Career advancement is high but very limited opportunities unless willing to relocate to Allentown, PA.

    Advice to Management

    Make microbulk less uniform nationwide as far as pricing and quotas. Understand not all territories are identical in opportunities. Provide a better marketing campaign rather than relying solely on sales reps.

  2. Managing to the most common denominator is a pathway to non-existence

    Pros

    Pay is great for what I am expected to do and accomplish.

    Cons

    Decision making is often by a consensus of opinion from a group of partially informed individuals rather than by analysis by a qualfied decision maker.

    Advice to Management

    You are slowly heading into oblivion and need to fundamentally change the company to survive over the long haul (slowly losing ground on the three other major companies in the industrial gas business segment). I understand that there is little near term incentive to do this. Thank God I will be retired in 15 years and have a defined contribution pension.
