Toxic environment - avoid like the plague

Sales Representative (Former Employee) Boston, MA

ProsQuality products, from Japan. Products have good brand recognition. Average benefits. Great place for a sales trainee to learn sales 10A and then get a real sales job.

ConsUpper management is completely unqualified for their roles and responsibilities (look them up on LinkedIn). They are all related somehow (even thought there is a strict anti nepotism policy). Upper management has demoralized and demotivated the company with draconian measures: 1. lack of direction; 2. zero leadership abillities; 3. GPS tracking of the sales force; 4. National sales manager is a "yes man" to production and has no voice, direction, or leadership qualities; 5. Operations is run by Caligula's horse; 6. salaries are below industry average; 7. bonuses are a complete mystery, paid once per year now; 8. unachievable sales plans and bonus goal objectives.

Advice to Senior ManagementFire yourselves.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    I left the first moment that I could

    Engineer (Former Employee) Indianapolis, IN

    I worked at SMC Corporation


    Pros: There are still some really good people who are stuck in the company. A good stepping stone… Cons: Management gets to become management solely because (a) they have been with the company for a long time and would just do what was told… Advice to Senior Management: Maybe you can run your company like a sweat shop in Japan, but this is not the culture here. 95% of the good people… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
