    Inside Wholesaler Review

    Inside Wholesaler (Current Employee) Wheaton, IL

    ProsApparently a good company to work for. Alot of good products and good compensation.

    ConsUnprofessional
    Your ideas do not matter, the input you place into the product and how to advise the clients, does not matter.
    Quantity is favored above quality

    Advice to Senior ManagementCannot get management to respond to product concerns or ideas.

    Great people, hard-working fun atmosphere.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Chicago, IL

    ProsThe CEO knows everyone by name and the sense is that great things are ahead for FT over the next several years.

    ConsMuch of the future of the company is tied up w/ the fortunes/performanace of a few employees rather than a broader group.

    Advice to Senior ManagementStay nimble, make sure we get value from all workers and don't do net hiring unless we are already usijg all workers the right way.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Great Work Environment but compensation is lacking

    Software Engineer (Current Employee) Wheaton, IL

    ProsIndividulas are treated as professionsals and are given a lot of freedom to innovate and express ideas. Employees are treated as people and not dispensible cogs in a financial machine. Upper management routinely does special things for employees to show they are appreciated.

    ConsIf you are self directed and motivated without the need for a lot of structure this is a great place to work. If you like the rigors of regular performance appraisals, salary administration, career advancement, etc. then this is not the place for you. The lack of structure can be a negative especially when it comes to compensation. Upper management has a view that they will provide a great work environment but you will not be paid as well as comparable .places.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Team Interview Format

    Inside Wholesaler (Former Employee) Wheaton, IL

    ProsNice benefits and location to metra to get back home downtown. If you need to drive out from the city to work you can park in the garage behind the office so that's a plus.

    ConsNational sales manager would do better by all if he would smile from time to time and not scowl even when things are going well in the business.

    Advice to Senior ManagementPlease make better decisions going forward so that you don't broadside employees with massive layoffs like you've had recently at your company.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
