Pros

Truly a place of great people with great passion to succeed. I enjoyed the interview process, the involvment of everyone in that process from the top down. Quite impressive.

Cons

Can't think of a con. Perhaps their expectations are fairly stringent yet those expectations are achievable. The sales managers are pulled in many directions

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep on tweeking!

    Pros

    Good, competitive products/services. Good company vision. Pretty good benefits and co 'perks'. Co car, corp card, matching 401k, flex spending, reward cards, awards

    Cons

    Sales Mgmt (at all levels) irrational and unsupportive. Most 'lead' through threats, negative reinforcement and ridiculous micromanagement. Highly inflexible to change and poor communication skills. Set unachievable goals and expectations. (VERY small % achieve them)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire some unbiased, experienced, well trained outsiders who can actually 'help' grow sales, improve morale, communication and internal procedures. Focus more on experience and proven success as opposed to always promoting from within ~ those who fit the 'existing club' mentality. Mgmt w/ positive, rational temperments and open communiation style ~ should have a trickle down effect. It all starts at the top!

    Sales management is new and destroying the sales engine that got the company to where they are today.

    Pros

    Company as a whole is moving in the right direction with very strong senior leadership.

    Cons

    Micro-managed. Reviews weekly-monthly. Pressure cooker environment where the customers are sensing aggression not value or partnership.
    The sales teams are being treated as no-talent children and pushed in the wrong direction,ultimately leading them to the door. The lack of experience and common sense approach will leave the managers spending most of their time filling positions with rookies like their competition.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Revert back to the days where you were judged by your year end results not daily, weekly and monthly! Too much time is being diverted on "to do" lists by managers so they have something "to do" resulting in poor performance across the board.
