I have been working at Sweda Company

Pros

Given autonomous decision-making authority, flexible in implementing new sales offerings. Fussy customer base but low barriers to entry to gain new distributors.

Cons

Difficult to make top salary in this industry. Promotional Products Industry is sales driven and ultra competitive. Margins are thin, thus everyone's compensation is adversely affected.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Profit-sharing possibility in the future? Labor-intensive industry drives down earnings and profit. Online marketplace will continue to change industry dramatically

    I worked at Sweda Company

    Pros

    Laid back company, no dress code, most people are easygoing

    Cons

    Biased management, archaic computer systems (who seriously uses paper to keep track of contacts) lack of growth opportunities, job descriptions not clearly laid out, unrealistic expectations, lack of open communication with upper management. Diminished image in promotional products industry. Lack of timeliness in dealing with clients and much more

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    This could be a world class company if the right people were promoted. There is a lot of dead weight, and you know who you are.
