Large Company with Large Benefits, but major disconnect in the customers and employees

Pros

Decent salary and compensation packages for sales people, more benefits then you can shake a stick at

Cons

Difficult to schedule team members for each project review (at time of bid or on closing of sale). Too many sales people over stepping sales leads. Large contracts and small service contracts and SIR's are all competing. The Baltimore, Maryland and Dulles, Virginia office always having territory conflicts and job assignments. It's too confusing and frustrating to fight a territory battle and the paper trails are longer then most jobs allow for lead time in the small service side of things.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Shore up the territories so that all of an area fulls under the same office. Help in expediting the paper process for approvals from management. Often times small service jobs don't have several days to wait for an answer when the competitor is ready to contract the same day and start ASAP.

    Branch 546

    • Comp & Benefits
    • Work/Life Balance
    • Senior Management
    • Culture & Values
    • Career Opportunities
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee  in  Cranberry Twp, PA
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Cranberry Twp, PA

    Pros

    Mostly great co-workers, some suck ups and tatle tails because they have learned that is what managment wants. Management will only throw those people a bone once in awhile, but will stab them in the back or get rid of them at any time.

    Cons

    DGM and his boys - Very Shady.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Quit running a boys club. Management hires people just like them. Nothing said is confidential with HR or Ombudsman even if they tell you it is. Your Manager will know who said it and what was said. VP's need to clean house at this branch.
