Pros

They give the outside sales team lots of support, and their methodology is a great system to use. Lots of freedom as an outside sales rep, great time off with no hassle, work from home office, and a great $7000 annual car allowance.

Cons

Not paid very well, high turnover, and their 1st week of initial training is brutal, it is geared toward somebody who has absolutley no idea about selling, yet, to be an outside sales rep you need experience. They really need to change their training program. Not very well respected by customers, think about it, you sell pens and paper.

Advice to Management

Pay more. Change training program. Pay more attention to the Canadian Operation. At the last sales convention in Montreal, Eric Bigeard clearly stated in his speech that Canada was doing terrible, not something nice to say at a sales convention when it's supposed to be positive.

    Pros

    very competitive industry, great training programs, good people that work as colleagues all over the country. also very interesting opportunites throughout the world.

    Cons

    structure of how to manage sales. i.e. margins etc., can be a bit confusing. Sales expectations sometimes difficult to achieve to reach 'bonus'. this aspect has been and can be very discouraging for people who are out there beating the pavement and working to increase sales only to be held back by the fact the margin is not sufficient or within the parameters outlined by senior management.

    Advice to Management

    Bonus structure should be reworked. it can be very difficult to maintain a margin level along with the increased sales as pre-determined at the beginning of the fiscal year. the industry is constantly changing and it's important we are more flexible and move along with the iminent changes.

    Pros

    Goede begeleiding en salestrainingen met leuke incentives en promoties. Ook leuke en jonge collega's

    Cons

    Erg omzet afhankelijk waardoor je de klant niet meer centraal kan stellen. Daarbij moet je investeren in een laptop en verdien je erg weinig als je target niet haalt

    Advice to Management

    Gebruik voor de Nederlandse accountmanager een Nederlandse aanpak. Nu gebeurd alles vanuit het kantoor in Berghem (Belgie)et ook een Belgische manier
