Current Employee - Senior Sales Representative in Vernon Hills, IL
Current Employee - Senior Sales Representative in Vernon Hills, IL

I have been working at Illinois Tool Works full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

Great Benefits except for no stock options. Great sales force and customer service reps.

Cons

Corporate Paslode upper management has no respect for sales force. They are very disconnected from customers and market. Completely priced out of the market, but yet still ask why we are losing market share. Really?? When prices are double the competition to the end user it makes it very difficult and very frustrating!!! Upper Management very degrading and unmotivating toward sales force
