Former Employee - Territory Manager

Pros

Large corporate company, several divisions within the organization. Second to Sherwin Williams in name and recognition.

Cons

They have long term managers who violate EOE policy. Must be part of the "in" crowd for advancement and promotions. HR is unhelpful and feels their managers can do no wrong.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Be more involved in the actual employment satisfaction of managers who has direct reports.
