Great Brand, Great People and Could be Even Better With Slight Changes"

Sales Representative (Current Employee)

Pros-Excellent Company Name Recognition
-Products help people live better lives
-Employees are world class
-Wide Spectrum of products
-Great Benefits
-Autonomy to do what you were hired to do

Cons-Regular Regime Changes among Executives
-Regular downsizing/uncertainty
-Inefficiencies that never get fixed and would be easy to fix
-Product portfolio and marketing as well as strategies do not allow various divisions to be competitive
-Limited loyalty and reward for achieving targets and over performing

Advice to Senior Management-Hold customers to contracts instead of taking a company loss
-Price more competitively to increase revenue based on customer perceived value and product life cycle vs competition
-Become more strategic vs reactive
-Truly integrate pricing/finance strategy to leverage multiline deals. Customers soon realize that just like in a store that you are spending more money to get something you did not want in the first place and not get a great discount for it. Deals should be a package that is attractive.
-Change customer perception of chaos and instability
