Too little opportunity in this market due to mistakes of past employees. Current employees punished for those mistakes

Sales Representative (Former Employee)
Myrtle Beach, SC

ProsThe structure imposed with guarantee that you become disciplined about use of time.

ConsMicromangement eliminates the drive for creativity and creates an environment of fear. This market has been operating in the red for many years. Management just decided to pay attention to the market, and now a swat team guards every decision. The local staff does not operate as a team because every move is watched by upper management. The goal becomes producing reports that are attractive rather than actually DOING a good job.

Advice to Senior ManagementA staff that operates under too much fear and pressure cannot perform; non performance becomes a habit. Look for ways to celebrate small successes daily. Success will breed success. The local market manager is too busy keeping corporate off his back to be available to help the sales staff grow the opportunity. If corporate insists on managing the market, then show up in the market and learn the local reality rather than managing from the other end of the phone.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
