I worked at Allied Wire & Cable
Pros – A great place to come in at entry-level, gain some experience, and use as a stepping stone to a better opportunity. Best for independent thinkers who can self-motivate and figure out how to side-step restrictive policies. Company supports a lot of perks for salesmen to offer customers to incentivize buying: sports tickets, gift cards, etc.
Cons – Management is stuck in the 1950s in terms of political correctness. Expect to be offended if you are not a white straight male. Sales management prefers intimidation to motivation. Sales goals and achievement tiers are changed at a moment's notice, no recourse. Salesman commissions are split with the house at every opportunity.
Advice to Senior Management – It would benefit this organization to invest in professional management training as well as cultural sensitivity training for it's management staff in all departments, and owners.
No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
