    Pros

    Trust junior people with opportunity to developp great carreers quickly
    Great place to developp and meet senior managers
    Internship motivation program

    Cons

    Low salaries - package is poor
    No possibility to renegotiate your package and appraisals are not the place to discuss reasons of success or failures

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Too huge discrepancies between different managers. Sales got usually the best ones.
    It seems that less focus is given to other departments

    I worked at Lyreco

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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.
