I worked at Zep full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Quality products Professional mgmt and staff Opportunities for growth Solid benefit package

Cons

Difficult for new salespeople to get started without prior connections with buyers in large accounts

Advice to Management

Ensure that you make it easy for customers to do business with you. This benefit was lost when Zep closed many branches on the local level. Perhaps this was merely a growing pain and has worked itself out by now.

    I worked at Zep full-time

    Pros

    Old, established company, good products, some smart people there

    Cons

    Knee-jerk reactions to market fluctuations, they have massive layoffs to show investors they are "serious about cost cutting" then add staff gradually, then another layoff, then more rehiring... rinse, repeat...

    Advice to Management

    Think about 5 years from now, not 5 months from now and stop treating your valuable, loyal employees like expired bread.
