Pros

Great management, benefits and perks. I got to travel a ton and meet a lot of great people. Super good exposure to a public company. Had a sweet 2008 Silverado. Learned a lot about account management.

Cons

Lower pay than I wanted. It seemed like you had to play the 'game' to move up. I wanted to apply for a field sales role and my national sales manager said no because I had only been in my current position for 18 months. That should not be a factor in applying for a position.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Offer a better comp plan based on individual success.

    Pros

    Large company, decent benefits
    Decent product lines, although the reputation is quickly diminishing
    Great coworkers for the most part, but the good ones are starting to realize that they will make much more elsewhere

    Cons

    The company and management truly have no regard for employees as people. Two layoffs in the last year have proven that they are money hungry and push profit above all else, including product quality.
    You will not get your first raise until at least 2 years after you start. You get a yearly performance review and the raise attached to that does not come for 12-16 months after, and the raise will be 6% at most, if you are lucky.
    In all areas of the company, they are cutting people and expecting more work to get done. This makes the company look terrible with shoddy products, little to no inventory, and overworked bitter salespeople.
