    Pros

    Day to day selling and discussing solutions selling with customers and seeing how excited people are to have you helping them.

    Cons

    When the solutions deal that you have just gotten a customer so excited about never comes to fruition, leaving an angry and frustrated customer in its wake.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be encouraging, not demeaning. Provide ongoing, lifetime leadership courses...not management classes. There are too many managers and not enough leaders.

    Pros

    merit and ability placed the employee at the top. Serious consideration for your ability to perform and your past results was done.

    Cons

    Once Ricoh Purchased IKON the Japanese management placed all IKON sernior staff in power positions and eliminated all legacy Ricoh senior management. This attitude filters down through the regional VP and Area VP of IKON legacy. It was not enough to to already know the issues that Ricoh had internally , IKON Management made it a daily sport to flog the RBS managers into submission. Most legacy IKON management either fired or went after legacy RBS managers in order to place legacy IKON employees in management roles.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The Japanese have made this mistake through three mergers. when will the learn that there are people in place that can work through a merger. IKON has killed the Ricoh brand.
