I have been working at Black Box full-time (more than a year)

Pros

Nice co-workers and that is all.

Cons

By far the worst sales job I have ever had. Senior management is in way over her head and is driving the division into the ground. Very low moral because of leadership's unethical treatment. I have seen many people come, and many people go. You live off of the base salary they provide with very little commission even at the top. Extreme Micro Management.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Treat your employees with respect. Take classes on business.

    Pros

    Quality of the products is great. I sleep at night knowing my customers got quality products that will perform. It is incredibly rare that a product fails the customer.

    Cons

    Its hard to describe how mismanaged they are. Year after year. The top management has no idea how to fix it either.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep promoting people to the top that have no background in sales or corporate management and see where we go. At the current rate HQ will become a distribution center to the integrators and the Name of Black Box will be left in the history books as a great product.

    I worked at Black Box

    Pros

    Enjoyed the work once I was at a customer site. Very little overnight travel. Great co-workers.

    Cons

    Poor equipment to work with. Counting inventory of outdated equipment that should have been thrown in the dumpster. Management more concerned about the bottom line rather than the customers satisfaction. No pay raises. Took away the annual Christmas Bonus!!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't publicize all the pay raises and bonuses the upper management get when the workers get nothing.
