Pros

In IT you can work on old and new stuff. They are open to new technologies. There is opportunity to learn various of things in the quasi-Aglie environment.

Cons

Promotions are few and far between. You will start to feel like you are "line" for a promotion but it can be hard to realize that you are at the end of the line. There is a boys club. It maybe difficult being excepted by them.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Recognizing employees is great but it would be even better to be given promotions. That is what we are working toward, advancement, not gift cards.

    Pros

    Great people and fun culture

    Cons

    commission plan changes multiple times a year and always for the worse. Latest example is this month setting your bonus/accelerator targets to your last month total gm. this means no bonus or accelerators until you sell above what you did the previous month. Unless you achieve your personal best month after month you will not make any bonus money. this has resulted in the average tenured sales rep loses over $1500 per month. This is not a company that rewards good sales people.....the m.o. is to see how much they can supress the sales persons earnings until they decide to quit...then mgmt will offer a short term stop gap and then months later, rinse and repeat.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    pay your people and encourage good sales people to join company instead of hiring bottom feeders. Job should be sold as a career and paid accordingly, now it is just a call center with call center pay and the majority of the sales force are first time sales people.....also within last year promoted most of customer service and support people to sales and never filled their old positions.....there is very little support for you clients at FQ and you are thanked by covering all aspects of your book by getting paid a measely 9% on LTL business and 10-12% on fill truckload business. These policies are atrocious and short sided and need to change if this company ever wants to become something great. If not, you will remain a revolving door of disgruntled and underpaid sales people
