Cons

-Office building is kinda old
-Benefits could be improved

-Depending on who you talk to and which department, some middle management is not well qualified and need training in managing people
-Senior management and decision makers are all older and may not be in touch with new technologies or emerging markets
-Tend to keep people around because of seniority without encouraging growth or further education

Advice to Management

Morale could be improved with better benefits, specifically something to allow people more time with their families. Allow people to work remotely or 4/10's or offer some sort of child care option. Management should explore emerging online (global) markets and technologies (i.e. improve web presence, improve VistarVision, look at affiliate marketing, social media, etc.) Also, some employees and departments and understaffed while others have too many. Distribute work loads more evenly and clean house with under producing departments.

    Pros

    Good Benefits, Generous paid time off 2 weeks vacation after 1 year, the environment was professional and friendly also they are big on training the sales force and give you all of the tools you need to do the job. Laptop, phone, expense credit card. I never had to pay for anything out of my own pocket. Top notch company.

    Cons

    The company changed the way we dealt with customers. Instead of growing existing business the focus was changed to a new customer base. It was just opening new accounts and have little to do with the customer once they were set up. It got to be boring and I did not see a chance to move up. it was just a grind day after day which was why I left for the most part. Management was fair and professional.

    Advice to Management

    Treat experienced workers with respect and give them some praise once in a while as well as showing that you can give the benefit of the doubt.
