    Pros

    Training and pay is very good. Also great benefits such as vacations and holidays. Raises and bonus based on year end reviews.

    Cons

    Upper Management claims they want your honest input but if it is anything except positive input they hold it against you. Also lower management plays favorites among reps and there are some very unethical managers in the company.

    Advice to Management

    Consider taking to heart what employees relate to you in regards to what is going on it the field and lower management.

    Pros

    Good payment. Excelent work environment and exposure to business.

    Cons

    No investment into developing employees which work in IT

    Advice to Management

    IT is also an important function. If management doesn't invest in IT employees, they can leave. It's easier for people in IT to find new positions in CPG than for employees of any other function.

    Quality of HR polices and practices is not the best. Choise of people for the job is friquently completely wrong, missing the basic values that company is advocating.

    Bigger focus on individual performance management, currently the process is not complete allowing things to stay bad long period of time.
