    Pros

    Great training in business, great opportunity to develop your own customer relations and test sales techniques. Good IT and business systems.

    Cons

    No room for advancement, Disposable attitude from Senior management towards the field sales group. Top down information flow no comments from field are tolerated.

    Advice to Management

    Either praise the field for their diligent work or migrate to an internet sales model.

    Pros

    Learnt alot. Got to see actual implementation of concepts learnt at school. Was given a very interesting project. This company has a pretty good transportation arrangement for its employees living in downtown Montreal. There is a free bus service which leaves from near Concordia University and takes you all the way to Future Electronics's office in Pointe-Claire

    Cons

    None actually. I guess if you're looking for an internship where you can slack off, not do much then this company isn't for you. People here are dedicated and there are reasonable expectations from you.

    Advice to Management

    None. I has a wonderful time working for you guys

    Pros

    Good location in the west island of montreal. Free parking, benefits and a well run company for the most part.

    Cons

    Longer hours (8:30- 5:30) for worse pay the a competing company. Accounts seem random and unorganized. Many unhappy past customers.

    Advice to Management

    Attract better quality people, by offering better wages.

  9. Don't ask why. Just follow the herd.
    Not a place where you innovate or perform productively.

    Pros

    Processes bordering on bureaucratic red tape. Learn the processes and become a trained monkey.

    Cons

    You will learn absolutely nothing suitable for your career growth, other than what you already bring into this company.

    Pros

    During Dan Casey's leadership of EMEA it was a fantastic journey. He is not a manager but a LEADER to follow. He is experienced, inspiring, and he takes good care of people around. I could participate many useful trainings where I learnt a lot about sales, presentation skills, change management and leadership. These trainings and a book Dan recommended to us inspired me and led me to the decision to do an MBA. The company changed me and changed my life. I am very thankful.

    Cons

    Sometimes badly thought-out KPI's. The vision of the company is clear, however the strategy behind is unknown and/or confusing. While a very much marketing driven company the fluctuation in Marketing dept is too high, which is causing loss of relationship at franchised suppliers and eventually loss of business.

    Advice to Management

    The management is extremely experienced and intelligent. They do not need my advice.
