Where people become numbers

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

ProsVery good products. Diverse product portfolio. Very good technical support staff. History of innovating and creating markets. Pay and commission plan very good. Excellent name recognition.

ConsNot price competitive. Naive marketing and upper management. Company has cut many people who held crucial product knowledge and knowledge about the inter-workings of the company and it has become very difficult to get things done internally.

Advice to Senior ManagementTrust your sales people to manage their territories.
