I worked at Konica Minolta Business Solutions U.S.A. full-time (more than an year)

Pros

Nice Staff. Nice, new, shiny machines to work with.

Cons

I was constantly outbid by our own distributors. They could sell the machine for less than the lowest price I was allowed to offer because they bought 80-100 machines at a time and received a huge volume discount. I could not compete on price and really that's all anyone cares about when it comes to copiers. Door to door soliciting in the heat of summer or the freezing winter was pretty awful too. People hated seeing me come in the door. It was downright depressing. It's a VERY unethical industry across the board.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Take the time to truly solicit honest feedback from the guys and gals on the front lines trying to sell your product, not just the branch managers. Develop a lead bank with information on who may need copiers in the area and let your salespeople have access to it, not just the branch manager who then parcels it out to his favorite employees.
