Pros

Sales Management and personel are generally amiable and supportive, and show true desire to help and teach others.

Cons

most employees are unfriendly, management only seems to point out mistakes instead of helping to correct them and hr heads are completely inept on matching employees to positions acording to their skills

Advice to Management

be more supportive and understanding of your employees and try to be more helpful instead of simply looking for ways to punish, also if times are hard and you want the employees to go the extra mile for you be more appreciative and dont discriminate according to which plant or department you came from.

    Pros

    When you get into the inner circle, there are great opportunities. The atmosphere is fun and there is a lot of money available to you via supplier funding, if you know how to work the angles. Sales is the place to be here.

    Cons

    departments are cliquish. If you are not in sales, it is difficult to advance. Definitely a "boys club" kind of industry. After the merger, the company was in a state of disarray and there was a lack of direction. I think the management definitely lacked in communicating what was going on to employees and it showed a lack of concern for the welfare of the employees (almost like saying - "Everything is on a need to know basis, and you dont neeed to know, because you might be gone tomorrow).

    Advice to Management

    communicate with your employees
