    Pros

    This company offers their employees the autonomy to treat their sales territories and or regions as their own businesses within a business.

    Cons

    Due to nature of the business, individuals need to be skilled at multi tasking and keeping organized which can cause some not too succeed. Because of the distance between the locations some locations and or staff can feel isolated.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to develop your people by offering training workshops for both the sales and technical aspects of the business. Since this business is so challenging you should continue to prepare the employees in every way to succeed.

    Pros

    the comraderie is very good here. They offer dental insurance, and extras like AFLAC. theyre flexible with paid time off. Management is pretty cool as long as youre really doing what youre supposd to do, and thats SELL.

    Cons

    some branches seem to lack proper training. hard work seems to go unappreciated, only sales are appreciated. If youre a salesman you better stick with selling and thats that. The health insurance is not that great. I think the salary is very low. Depending on your position you might be happy. Inside sales is the pits here.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    inside salesmen are some of the hardest working people in the company, thouhg that depends on location. Management should consider paying them a higher salery because these employees dont have enough time to do proactive sales. Also this company lacks customer service training. Customer service is an extra at this place as long as youre selling youre doing your job. Also consider adding more staff members with shorter shifts.

    Pros

    Ownership and management care about there employees, while expecting you to perform at a high level, you can also be sure there is time to enjoy what you do and the people you work with. Social events and celebrations are never overlooked. Milestone anniversaries with the company, beginning at 5 years, are recognized and older ones with unique events are planned to surprise the employee...Great Culture! Good compensation for good performance.

    Product Lines are the most important in the industry and customers need what we sell. The company is not afraid to inventory what sells. Management decisions and direction happen quickly with out undue stalling.

    Cons

    Hard work that takes focus and individual motivation. With 14 locations having a connection with all employees is difficult. Sometimes in smaller offices you can feel like you are out on an island. IT infrastructure has improved significantly and helps with this a long with company events. Product training program could be improved, plenty of structure around sales and IT.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management should consider having everyone know and embrace the organizations vision.

    Pros

    Rewards for effort and results. Provides leadership and direction without too much micro-management. Gives employees the ability to achieve results with the added benefit of a support team that is knowledgeable and able to give guidance when needed. Good benefits and work schedule. Approachable upper management and ownership.

    Cons

    No real cons come to mind. I find when there are issues they are dealt with appropriately. The company seems very grounded to me.

    Pros

    This is a nice, solid, and fair company to work for. There are quite a few long-time employees (at several locations) who are very helpful and knowledgeable. Their willingness to teach, coach, and be a team player has been instrumental in my success with this company. It is a competitive and results based company yet not cut throat. It provides a great team atmosphere that I enjoy being a part of. The sales goals are aggressive but realistic and completely obtainable for hard working and dedicated employees.

    Cons

    Having locations spread from Boston, MA to Charlotte, NC makes it a bit challenging to really get to know your co-workers outside of your specific location. However, the company does host a spectacular company Christmas party for everyone to mingle. (Flights, hotels, and Party..... all paid for) There is also potential for the yearly, all-inclusive, sales incentive trip.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Awesome job on the newly revised "Training Schedule/Outline". It is much more structured and helpful for newer employees. Continue to coach and assist your staff with an open door, open mind

    Pros

    The company is certainly a results driven organization that compensates fairly for achieving the company goals. The hours of operation allow for you to spend time with your family and have a good work-life balance. Company has fair benefits and I credit them for asking for employee feedback to enhance and improve the benefits they provide.

    Cons

    There could be a standardized approach to increasing base salaries. The company always allows for you to increase your earnings with growth which is a plus but most of that seems to be in the form of bonus NOT base.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you are doing. I respect that you always look to improve our benefits, our branding and our product offerings. The communication between departments has significantly improved. The culture and bonding on the sales trip is second to none.

    Pros

    People are nice, friendly and it is a family like atmosphere. Company provides great benefits to employees and allows for a good work/life balance. Work hard and you are rewarded.

    Cons

    There are 14 locations so it can be hard to get to know other team members. The company does have a holiday party to bring everyone together so that helps. The pro's far outweigh any cons.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to invest in the employees with fair compensation, great benefits and growth opportunities.
