Current Employee - Account Executive in Honolulu, HI
Current Employee - Account Executive in Honolulu, HI

I have been working at The Berry Company full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Compensation is okay, fellow peers are willing to help and seem professional, benefits such as medical and dental are good.

Cons

Previously I worked in magazine sales and when I was offered this sales job I was told that it's more consultative and we get to know are customer. Once I completed training the consultation approach went down the drain. My manager wanted me to sell like a "car salesman". He was previously from this industry and wanted each of us to sell like that.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Look at how your managers are training the sales reps, upper management is disconnected from day to day operations, get better digital products.

    Former Employee - Account Manager in Honolulu, HI

    I worked at The Berry Company full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    You get to work with some fun people
    Steady paycheck every 2 weeks (unless you are in sales)

    Cons

    No organization
    Poor management
    Lack of communication
    High employee turn-around

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get organized and figure out a way for the company to successfully move forward. And figure out how to properly bill clients. It is 2013, and you still can't figure out how to bill the same client the same amount month to month? That took up a majority of my time, which wasn't even my job. I would recommend setting up automatic payments from a credit card and billing on the last day of each month. Can't be that hard, right? Also: TOO MANY VENDORS to work with.
