Great company values- lots of people who care and work together.

Sales Representative (Current Employee)
Philadelphia, PA

ProsThe business plan is on the right track- the senior leaders are engaged. You almost always can find someone who will support your through a process or is willing to listen and help.

Cons(Some) Middle managment lacks conviction and willingness to take risks for employees. Unless this is pushed down from Senior Leaders.

Advice to Senior ManagementSenior leaders either need to give more consideration and encouragement to middle managers- and/or provide a non threatening environment to foster communication and confidence. Do you really know the feedback from the sales field?

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
