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

  1. Well organized business structure for maintaining and growing business but not that well executed on a personnel level.

    Pros

    Great benefits package, personal and corporate training, decentralized form of management allows for the small company feel with the benefits of a big corporation

    Cons

    History of growth through acquisition frequently gives rise to business unit reorganization and elimination of positions, or in some cases complete office locations.

    Pros

    There is a great deal of opportunities for growth in this company. I am always getting challenged to try new things and take on new challenges. Insurance is great.

    Cons

    compensation and time off are low. HR refuses to negotiate vacation time when you hire in so no one gets increased vacation time even if you are a experienced professional.

    Advice to Management

    Considered increasing salaries and vacation time off.
