Management is a minus at this company.

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Collegeville, PA

ProsA 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.

ConsManagement 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 ManagementIt 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
