Fast-paced place to work - great company to be a salesperson.

Purchasing and Inventory Management (Current Employee)
Baltimore, MD

ProsConsistent profitability - Lots of great people trying hard to do the right thing.
Company gives employees a chance to prove their worth. Senior leadership is consistent in owning the actions of their responsible parties - for the most part. Work-life balance is respected. Good benefits.

ConsStrong resistance to organizational change. Clear goals are often set, but rarely measured and only positive reinforcement is given, no criticism. Apparent lack in leadership accountability.
Completely non-existent career development strategies for employees. Lack of robust training programs, both for new hires and cross-functional collaboration. (However, technical training for support roles is strong.) Burden of pay raises falls to employees.

Advice to Senior ManagementLargest criticism is the lack of career development of employees. Secondarily, being unwilling to trim entrenched, poorly performing business keeps the company weighed down.
