Great company for start up sales experience. Company is growing. Market is very saturated.

Account Coordinator (Current Employee)
Elk Grove Village, IL

ProsThey have great benefits. They reinvest in their employees very well. continuous training. Pay is OK, not great. Plenty of product knowledge. Relocation is an option.

ConsSome micro management. Not enough vacation time for employees. Hard to move up. They do not offer educational advancement above a bachelors degree.

Advice to Senior ManagementAllow some flexibility to associates. More vacation time and team based activities to boost employee moral. Leadership is a great asset at this company. Allow for educational assistance for MBA degrees.
