STAY AWAY - This comapny's ethics are deplorable - even AFTER the executive management change!

I have been working at Systemax

Pros

Salary - This company pays some of the best salaries in the region. By far the cons do outweigh even this benefit.

Cons

The new management (installed in 2011) is terrible to employees and will terminate them on a whim.
Stay away from this company if you have any sort of ethics.
Most employees there are afraid to take any risk due to management's heavy hand when it comes to mistakes.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Sell the company - you really have no idea how to treat employees. It's the people that work there that will make or break your company and you have done everything possible to make them hate you.

    Pros

    Youll get pad well, you'll be treated with respect and dignity, your family will be held in high regard, you will accomplish a lot in your career, you will get ahead.

    Cons

    There is no downside. This is a great place to work. Parking can be a challenge, especially when it rains.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep paying people well. Do more to support the community. Think longer term. Do a better job of reviewing employees to give feedback.

    I worked at Systemax

    Pros

    Low expectations, easy to get entry level experience.

    Cons

    Little communication and support from management, VERY unprofessional. You could work here for many years and be fired for no reason (or even a goodbye from old co-workers). No regard for work-life balance, salaried employees expected to work 50ish hours. Most every employee is viewed as a commodity.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The organization is so infected with unprofessionalism and selfishness that I can't think of any honest suggestions to fix the problems within it.
