I have been working at Ricoh full-time for more than a year

Pros

A pro for me is working by myself in my own mailroom. Meeting new people.

Cons

Not having much freedom as to when you want to take time off, having to give 30 days notice is not convenient. A lot of rules, but no one around to enforce them.

    I have been working at Ricoh full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Full benefits (yet on the high side), good for first time sales person as long as they can operate on their own.

    Cons

    The Chicago area alone has over 100 sales people - not enough accounts for sales to operate at plan, unrealistic sales goals, every position has same quota regardless of account base or experience, lot of initiatives, very little gets accomplished. Management activities driven by checking the box of what they need to do vs. looking at the reality/benefit of the activity. Internal processes are a nightmare. Use very little of the technology they sell. Lots of politics, managment slow to respond on most issues. Base salaries are very low and the comp plan is difficult to understand (over 20 pages) and commission system is very dysfunctional, never know if you are getting paid right, commissions payouts are very low as well. Probabaly the worst culture ever seen, everyone talks about looking for a new job or just how bad it is there.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Set realistic expecations. Do what you say you are going to do. Sr. Mgmt...have more interaction with your staff, especially the sales people.
