    Pros

    Benefits are great, paid time off is great, people are fun & friendly to work with for the most part, steady base salary, flexibility with pricing products for your customers, casual dress.

    Cons

    Base salary of $10/hr is way too low for what's expected, management argues constantly with each other, poor communication and earning structures, not enough sales training and continued education, an increase in quantity of calls and talk time vs. learning and demonstrating how QUALITY relationships should be built with customers.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more employees at better rates. Hire employees with the sole purpose to generate leads. Hire employees with the sole purpose to utilize social media marketing strategies. Hire employees with the sole purpose to take credit card payments. Listen & ask your employees what THEY think... or else you'll have a completely new group of employees every year. People are seeking new jobs currently. Everything is going down hill.

    Pros

    The pros of working at Komet have passed , the company has entered a "New Era" of dysfunction and Toxicity!!

    Cons

    Top Mgmt. has reached the status of no longer being relevant therefore no longer is concerned with climate in office. Middle Mgmt. is Under qualified and has created an atmosphere of the classic "Toxic Workplace": favoritism, unrealistic goals, unwarranted attacks on very capable staff , constant harassment as if you can be replaced any day any time has become the norm. The Quality Komet Team that was in place is quickly being dismantled and leaving for saner employment. Turn Over on the Inside and Outside Sales Force is rampant.

    Advice to Management

    Lemgo you need to pay attention or cut your losses.

    Pros

    Many great employees, stable industry

    Cons

    Communication is practically non-existent, foreign ownership creates unique cultural problems, cliques among employees are prevalent, senior management clearly favors employees over others

    Advice to Management

    Listen to what your employees are telling you for once instead of thinking you know whats best
