Run as fast as you can

Account Manager (Current Employee)
Maple Grove, MN

ProsNice co-workers and that is all.

ConsBy 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 Senior ManagementTreat your employees with respect. Take classes on business.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    If management were the quality of the products this would be awesome

    Outbound CS&S (Current Employee)
    Pittsburgh, PA

    I have been working at Black Box


    Pros: Quality of the products is great. I sleep at night knowing my customers got quality… Cons: Its hard to describe how mismanaged they are. Year after year.… Advice to Senior Management: Keep promoting people to the top that have no background in sales or corporate management and see where we go. At the current rate… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More

    Went downhill when our company was bought by Black Box

    Field Service Technician (Former Employee)
    Columbia, SC

    I worked at Black Box


    Pros: Enjoyed the work once I was at a customer… Cons: Poor equipment to work with. Counting inventory of outdated equipment that should have been thrown in the dumpster. Management… Advice to Senior Management: Don't publicize all the pay raises and bonuses the upper… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
