Pros

Great product, wonderful people to work with. Made you feel good to be part of a company that had such great products.

Cons

The pay was OK, a little low for the area. Also a lot of change recently when they were bought by a large company; things changed.

Advice to Management

Communcating to employees is key; offer consistent job reviews instead of haphazard (some departments did them regularly, others did not).

    Too many changes, too many meetings, too much micromanagement and too many layoffs.

    Pros

    The money and benefits were good and most people were very nice. Taking time off was no problem at all.

    Cons

    *No upward mobility. Very few raises and promotions. *Micromanagement. Even if your sales goals were being met, you were still put under a microscope in other areas such as call volumes and length of time on the phone. *Backstabbing coworkers, but hey, that's sales. *My biggest bone to pick was that offices were opened overseas to increase profit margins, which meant that many Americans lost their jobs to people living in India and the Philippines. The idea was that people overseas in India and the Philippines work for MUCH LOWER wages. Why pay an American big bucks when you can open up an office overseas and pay foreigners much lower wages.

    Advice to Management

    Close the foreign offices and bring the jobs back to America. I have no idea what the few managers there did. They mainly went to meetings and micromanaged their subordinates. Other than that, they were useless.


  2. Decent first job

    Pros

    Great training program. They encourage growth and creativity. Not sure how they are since the acquisition by DuPont a few months back.

    Cons

    Dialing for dollars many time. They have a high turnover so clients get frustrated with new people coming on board.

    Advice to Management

    Less micromanagement at the team levels. Perhaps better interviewing would filter out people not fit for the portion in the first place.
