    Used to be proud of working for Simplex, now I'm just hoping to survive the several years I have until retirement.

    Pros

    Pay scale is alright for a service rep. Vacation/paid time off is adequate. Enjoy working as a resident technician and basically working my territory out of my home.

    Cons

    The company has lost its ability to care about people, both customers and employees. The service department has been taken out of the hands of service background people and put into the hands of bean counters. Micro-management is the norm. Common sense is no longer tolerated.

    Advice to Management

    I understand the profit motive as it equates to stock holders and dividends. However, we made a profit for years by putting the customer and their needs first. I've lost several 20+ year customers because it is too difficult to get through our system to set up a service call. As a manager at a large state university told me, he "didn't have 20 minutes to spare" every time he wanted to set up a service call. His time is money too. He now uses another company. Let's get common sense back into the system.
