Current Employee - Senior Account Representative in Wayne, PA

Pros

Pay for cell phone and happy hours.

Cons

Too many to list, have adopted a call center attitude, sales reps. report to three managers. The managers are not in it to help you they are in it for themselves and to build their castles, which was one VP's own statement. The company has cut comp. plans year over year and once strong name in the 90's early 2000's is now a revolving door.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Advice to senior management be honest with your employees either sell the company like it is rumored to do or start treating your employees like you did in the early 2000's with respect, especially the top reps.

    Was great to work for in the Comdisco days

    Pros

    Flexible management- always encouraging employees to learn more and to get involved. Most of the co-workers are supportive. Was not micro-managed.

    Cons

    Some of co-workers took advantage of the 'non-micromanaged' mentality of managers. Some managers were not aware of the workers that did not contribute. If took on responsiblity you would be automatically held accountable for task from that time on- regardless if it was not your job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more open-minded and support the people actually doing the job.

    Pros

    A lot of really great people, past and present.

    Cons

    Company is outsourcing a lot. No job security.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Bring customer service back and the clients might stay. Keep hiring overseas and they will continue to leave, even the bigger customers which seem to be the only customers you really care about.
