Pros

you get out of it what you put into it. still a good job

Cons

some management has no clue what we do or how we do it

Advice to ManagementAdvice

get to know our business before you make decisions that hurt our company. It used to be a partnership between reps and the company now it's the company against the reps, that needs to change

    Pros

    Zep has some of the finest products int he specialty chemical arena. Their products can be sold to any customer at any time. While the culture is changing, it still has the feel of a smaller company.

    Cons

    Zep is going through a lot of growing pains currently. It is in the process of the changing the corporate culture and refocusing efforts to establish a multiple route to market strategy. Layoffs, low-employee morale and increased pressures on remaining staff make life difficult in the short term. My thought is that when these changes are complete, Zep will find it's way back to a great place to work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Carefully consider strategies and realize that your people are your most valued asset. I have seen some talented people who have been let go due to severances and this can have negative consequences if not looked at from a case by case basis, rather than, a departmental basis.

    Pros

    Fair pay, good communication with mgmt, team approach at all levels, advancement opportunities in Atlanta especially and if willing to relocate. Unlimited potential in sales

    Cons

    It is difficult for sales reps without a book of business to make it at Zep on the pay structure unless their is strong spouse support while a rep builds his/her business.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    A more structured sales rep training program would be helpful. There is not enough criteria used in hiring new reps. It seems as though the process is to throw as many people against the wall and see what sticks.
