    I worked at Makita U.S.A.

    Pros

    It is a quality, industry respected product that is in demand. In the sales role you have flexibility in schedule, will participate in fun events and work closely with the top end-users and distributors in your market. The branding initiatives provide for some unique opportunities. Your routine changes daily and is at times challenging, but personally rewarding. The people you will work with are great.

    Cons

    Communication from upper management is minimal at best. There is a prevailing prairie dog culture that prevents open and honest communication with the top. Competition from Makita itself in the form of other distributors and Makita sales territories is a constant battle. Increasing sales targets without regard to economic conditions is a challenge.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Allow for more open and honest communication without the fear of reprisal. Make efforts to attract and retain quality sales talent. Improve personal and professional growth initiatives. Listen more closely to customer needs.
