Employees not priority

Sales Coordinator (Current Employee)
Winona, MN

ProsWork isn't bad, opportunity to move up if you know the right people, are pretty, or are in with the boozing golf club. Pretty flexible hours wise

ConsFavoritism, nepotism, cronyism run rampant.... no performance reviews, no raises and bonuses taken away if company goes below 10% growth... creative accounting to make sure shareholders profit and this profit is paid for by employees.

Advice to Senior ManagementFocus on your employees as much as customers. Fix the who you know atmoshpere

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