Pros

Nice people, good work life balance, down to earth culture

Cons

Felt stifled, no room for growth, a very functionally segmented company with no information sharing

Advice to Management

Sharing information across functional boundaries and allowing process improvement projects to reach beyond their specific function or area.

    Pros

    Benefits are reasonable, particularly the health care and dental plans. Tuition reimbusement program is very competitive with what other companies offer.

    Cons

    They get awards for family-friendliness, but it really depends on your manager. My manager declared that you could either spend time with your family, or you could put in longer hours at work and get promoted and feed your family. No lie. Said manager also said that employees should not be given extra training, as everyone was 'too dumb' to understand advanced concepts for promotion. Yet, this guy was the apple of senior management's eye.

    Pros

    Reconized name in the industry. Good quality product.

    Cons

    Constant increase in quotas as territories were sized down. No residual business to Rep after sale but expectations of customer relations on accounts for which you are not paid.

    Advice to Management

    Manage expectations on the management leel as well as the sales force
