Old Boys Network

Territory Manager (Former Employee)
San Antonio, TX

ProsFor an Old boys network of vp's, the company was extremely progressive with women. I was told by the company president upon recieving my offer "don't think you can just get by around here with your pretty face". Although taken aback a bit, I honestly felt that my VP had my best interests at heart. All of the Vice presidents (there are quite a few) had all worked together at one point - coming from Curcuit City. Even my head hunter had done the same.

ConsThe salary for Eye Doctors was excessively low, and in much smaller towns was extremely difficult to bring doctors on. There were offices that ran for years without eye doctors! There was supposedly a head hunter available, but he never followed up on what he said he would do. Again, one of the Circuit City boys.

Advice to Senior ManagementMake sure that the people you place to assist the field are truly doing their job. Just because they were your golden boy at a former job does not make them efficient.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
