    Pros

    The management team is solid, experienced and intelligent. The company continues to grow and achieve targets. The employees are engaged and their opinions seem to matter.

    Cons

    The local management team is good but the holding company maintains a detached approach to the employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Develop a strategy to keep the current culture while continuing to grow.

    Pros

    Steady paycheck - good benefits: Health, Dental Vision, PTO, Vacation, Holidays. If you are a sales person and like Account sales, you will like the work. I enjoyed connecting with customers. I would have preferred another territory but it was ok. $38K base - very small commissions

    Cons

    I wonder if they ever hired any men for the inside sales? From what I understand there has been lots of turnover since I was there and a new inside sales manager. Some of those girls are very toxic to be around. It can be awkward if you don't fit in with the click. 8th grade sort of drama at times. The manager at the time was not a very skilled manager. Also, depending on who you have on your outside sales team will definitely determine whether your experience will be a good one! The outside sales folks seem to think that inside sales is for their administrative support more than a sales partnership. That was my experience. Didn't like the environment and took another position after 2 years

    Was good at first, but found out how unmoral and how unethical the company really was

    Pros

    Great leadership that let people work. Employees allowed to be creative and express opinions. Wonderful coworkers that care about the success of the company and each other! Terrific company culture that builds on a foundation of trust and support.

    Cons

    Minor issues only ... the corporate HQ office is a little tired and could be spruced up a bit. Some furniture could be replaced. ERP system needs some enhancement.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work! Allow non-executive leaders to carry the tactical load, they won't let you down!
