    I worked at Lipari Foods full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Very Experienced and intelligent workforce. Company is not afraid to invest in the latest technology. It is an acceptable place to work if you do not have an education.

    Cons

    Lack of vacation time, and employees are expected to be available for customers 7 days a week. Scare tactics implemented by management, changes in commission structures are regular. With this being route based sales it is common to have accounts taken from you and given to sales reps earning less, almost a socialistic view of sales territories. The company does not pay for employee cell phones and provides absolute minimal car allowances even though these are required for the job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Changing commission structure is one of the worst things management can do to a sales force. Treat your employees well, and you will experience much greater productivity than if you try to motivate with scare tactics. Mergers and acquisitions are not always the best way to grow a business, and rarely are they they most profitable.
