Used to be good, now....not so much

Territory Manager (Former Employee) Omaha, NE

ProsCompany car, full paid benefits, 6% company match 401k

ConsEverything else. Micromanaged, sales goals change by the week, impossible to make your numbers with constant change, bonus program is laughable, tracked how long it takes you to make calls, drive between calls, and expected to make 10-12 calls per day all while selling new(always changing) programs, POS and account management. They expect the moon, and don't give you any leeway on anything. I am so glad to be done here. I expect this company to be bought out very VERY soon seeing as how the Brits don't want it anymore.

Advice to Senior ManagementHave some realistic expectations for a completely different market than Europe. Yes, brand awareness is great, but signage needs to be simple and to the point. Also, you have out priced all of your brands in the categories they need to be in. Advice? I think its too late for any advice. If you work here, get busy finding another job, and fast. Ship is sinking..

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

Better… Cons: "The British Are Coming, The British Are Coming" Everything changed and sales now declining rapidly. When owned by an individual and then an ESOP company,… Advice to Senior Management: Treat each employee with total respect. Work as a team,… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
