    Management is so frustrating hitting your head against the wall gets better results.

    Pros

    Family owner almost 100 year old company. Reputation in MA and NH is very good, CT is not there yet.

    Cons

    GPS in car to track every movement. Management prevents success. No communication. Training very substandard. Benefits horrible. No days off. No flexibility.

    Advice to Management

    The relationship between sales and sales management/support should not be adversarial! Learn to communicate with your crew. It is your job to make the sales process easier!

    Pros

    I have been at Crown for about 6 years now and was with a competitor for about 4 years prior. I have been in the workforce for almost 30 years and have learned that NO job is perfect, but I can tell you my time at Crown has been some of my best. Knowing how the competition manages and sells I can tell you there is not a company in the industry with higher integrity and that comes right from the top. You can find employees in any industry and in any company that will always blame the people around them for their failures, but the sales people that want to learn their craft and give an honest day's effort at Crown are almost always successful.

    Cons

    Benefits are a little pricey

    Advice to Management

    Continue to carry out the values that your family members before you put in place and everything will be just fine.
