Current Employee - Customer Sales Representative
Current Employee - Customer Sales Representative

Pros

Independence, paid car usage, reasonably good commissions, decent benefits

Cons

Long hours, minimal effort to address work-life balance, lack of strategic planning, terrible internal communication, definite lack of advancement opportunity.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Better communication is needed at all levels.
A clear strategic plan to guide the company for more than the next quarter would help.
Some sort of plan for career advancement is needed (and sorely lacking.)

    Management unfocused
    Customer's unhappy with Corporate policies (distributors do not like Schwans)
    Salaries not as high as competitors in industry

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on a few new products a year and market them correctly before you roll out. Too many products rolled out unsuccessfully over the years.
