Stay Away Until a New CEO is Placed

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

ProsBenefits, Time Off are great. Excellent Customers and great people - what's left of the long-timers.

ConsNo respect or value for employees or retention, especially front-line sales. Extreme micro management in place and pay is 10-20% lower than market.

Advice to Senior ManagementGet a new CEO and think twice about retaining the dedicated force you have left...many of us are being welcomed with open arms by competitors. Will take months, if not years ot recover from the loss of skilled, seasoned professionals required to have the conversations necessary, at the c-levels required to sell the large, diverse suite.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
