Pros

It has given me a chance to improve my tenacity in a mutable corporate environment. The hours tend to be flexible Free donuts and pizza. No dress code. Private cubicles. Nice buiding. Pool table. Nice Ops Staff downstairs. Great original product theory. Solid original contract offering. The founders are geniuses. And fantastic, dynamic men. Sorely missed.

Cons

Extremely high turnover.

PES fires instead of coaching properly.

Four two-hour sales meetings every week.

Biased treatment.

Keep ex-employees listed in database.

Keep ex-employees voicemails active.

No private/password protected client lists for sales staff. This allows dishonest sales people to steal prospects from other sales people..

Extremely long sales process.

Confusing, ever-changing contract terms for clients.

Unclear and always shifting rules for sales staff.

Advice to Management

Completely retool HR constructs.
Train for retention.
FIGURE OUT THE COMP PACKAGE.
Drug Test.
Issue WRITTEN performance reviews and plans for improvement.
Allow employees access to their employee files.
Have uniform procedures in place.
Discourage drama and gossip.
Design a lead base with passwords for each salesman.
Qualify all leads.
Allow employees more ownership over their leads.
Give employees more leads.
Hire trustworthy employees. And then TRUST them.
Instill fairness.
End preferential behavior by management.
Maintain zero iolerance for theft, alcohol and drugs in the workplace,
Management needs to invoke honesty and ethics in all actions.
Stop feeding the bears. We are not THAT hungry.
Encourage open dialogue.
Build teamwork.
Build staff morale.
Stand firm on contract issues for clients.
Hire a paralegal. The Sales Manager should not be deciding legal claims.
Stop basing fact on hearsay.
Install a timeclock to improve productivity..
Bring the founders back.

    Pros

    PES, now Vizant, is a smaller organization with extensive reach into various industries internationally, offering a great niche product. PES offers competitive compensation packages along with great benefits, enough to rival any large corporation. There is great opportunity for your voice to be heard and your ideas to be considered and implemented. Although the culture revolves around a demand for results, the general environment is relaxed and laid back. PES observes major holidays and has a very generous PTO schedule.

    You will be encouraged to learn and develop independently, with certain guidance available. There is a demand and expectation for a strong work ethic and high level of self-discipline. That said those who do show progress and development, are quickly noticed and given opportunities to excel and develop further. There is plenty of opportunity for growth and upward movement within an ever growing organization.

    Cons

    As with many smaller organizations such as PES, there is a limited but developing structure for training and support. There will be a great demand for those who are self-sufficient and capable of thriving in a fast-paced, ever-evolving environment. This is a unique business with a unique product, so fast learners will thrive best.

    Advice to Management

    Maintain a consistent level of open communication with all your employees. Continue to encourage and support morale from within, as that will dictate the success of the company
