    Pros

    OK salary. Can make up time for doctors' appointments, etc.

    Cons

    Management doesn't care about your ideas, so shut up & build salesforce.com for them because they were too cheap to buy a program like Siebel.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Smile every once in a while and don't take yourselves so seriously. Listen to your employees. Attempt to make work a positive environment instead of one filled with doom and gloom. Get rid of the supervisors/managers who are bringing down the team by bringing personal problems to work. Explain the review process & make goals/objectives easier to understand.

    I have been working at MSC Industrial Direct full-time

    Pros

    The benefits are good,

    Cons

    the middle management only care about growth of your accounts and use micromanagement to try and keep you extra busy. Dont expect to make much of your commissions since the goals are so hard to reach.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to the employees. They spend so much time talking that they don't understand the struggles of the feet on the street.
