Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Largo, FL

I worked at Valpak Direct Marketing Systems full-time (more than 8 years)

Pros

Collaborative environment; leadership is open to feedback and accessable; employer funded pension plan; great potential

Cons

Low pay; however, there is an employer funded pension.
Not very sophisticated when it comes to data mining to shape strategic and tactical decisions. Modeling is mostly based on averages versus any valid statistical approaches.
Trying to advance into the digital marketing space with current employees when they should be buying the best talent available with solid digital experience

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Shake up the leadership team - they aren't the talent to advance digital.
Incent the franchise owners to stop contracting their territories
Bring in outside talent to infuse the organization with new blood and a fresh set of eyes
Don;t relocate the headquarters to downtown St Petersburg - you will loose many employees by going so far south in the county just because that location is close to the CEO
Hire some Lean and Six Sigma engineers to provide real analysis to support the best strategy

Recommends
Negative Outlook
Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at Valpak Direct Marketing Systems full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Benifits and retirement plan were great.

    Cons

    The organizations value of diversity. In some departments male employees are unaccustomed to working with women and are openly resentful. Including supervisors and managers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Restructure the management team. I advise a formal education to be a prerequisite for a management positions including H.R. I also suggest discrimination training to be revisited and enforced in all departments. This will in turn reduce the good old boy atmosphere in the departments where needed, and possibly bring moral up.
