Good company but artificially/overly cutting back b/c of the recession

Pros

Great people. Great Hours. Great brand recognition/ name.

Cons

They are over-reacting to the recession and therefore undervaluing and taking advantage of their employees.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Take a few management courses... you shouldn't promise things you can't deliver... even if they are "unofficial."

    Good place to work, not happy with my supervisors.

    Pros

    Benefits were fairly good and not too costly. I was happy with variety you could choose from for medical, dental, and 401k benefits.

    Cons

    I did not have a good experience with my position and my supervisors. Also, when I was interviewing I made sure to specify that I was looking for a position where I had a good work/life balance and was not interested in working much more than 40 hours a week (but I did understand I probably would during month and year end). I was assured they agreed with my needs, however, when I got into the job I was required to work about 50 hours a week.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The position I had needed more of an actual set of job duties, there were times I had to go to others looking for work. Plus, if there is going to be consistent overtime should let people know while interviewing.

    Pros

    The company has a great name to those who do not work there. It will look great on a resume but it is not a place to work for an entire career. It is possible that the majority of the company is great, however, my part, the inside sales department is less than desirable.

    Cons

    Managers are promoted based on sales ability rather than management ability. Maybe this is a common problem, however, anyone can see that sales ability and management ability often do not overlap.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look at your low level managers. Remove those who cannot manage. With a quick look it will be very evident who is there because of salesmanship and those there because they can manage.
