Pros

Great products to sell. Good training program. Nice salary and bonus/profit sharing. Great benefits (medical/dental/vision/life). Two weeks vacation plus all the public/federal holidays. Fully-maintained company vehicle, which can be used for business and personal needs. Matching 401K. Great opportunities to interact with senior management. This company values its employees. Sales leadership is fair and honest.

Cons

TR's work in the field all day and then have to head home and finish reports on their activities by the end of the day. Work in the field is done in all types of weather and traffic.

Advice to Management

Keep it up!

    Pros

    The company offers a great benefits package along with paid vacation and holidays. Some positions offer a company vehicle. Most employees work independently.

    Cons

    The workload far exceeds the amount of hours you get paid for. The expectations are constantly being increased while the compensation stays the same. There is very little to no positive reinforcement and because of this, employee morale stays fairly low. Management is not very supportive, but rather critical and condescending. The the employees are only given $25 daily per deim while working out of town. There are very few promotion opportunities without relocation. Bonus structure is based on regional goals rather than individual goals.

    Advice to Management

    1. Listen to your employees. They are the ones out in the field representing your company and they are your biggest asset. They spend more time at retail level than anyone else in the company and their knowledge is more valuable than your unreliable computer models. 2. Appreciate your employees. People are less likely to leave a job when they feel appreciated, not to mention the quality of their work will be better when they know it's appreciated. 3. Spend some time at retail level to stay in touch with industry trends. Don't be the unapproachable manager behind the desk, be the one who will get their hands dirty and help your team succeed. True leaders lead by example.
