    Parent Company great - unfortunately their sub - ALL COVERED - Needs to understand the art of the professional services

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsGreat people at KMBS mostly
    Poor excuses for management at All Covered

    ConsAll Covered Management cannot get out of its own way their best business minds - all gained via acquisitions have been chased out of the company leaving mindless management

    Advice to Senior ManagementLeave and allow KMBS to bring in PROFESSIONA Services Experts

    I will never work for a copier company again!

    Account Executive (Former Employee) Orlando, FL

    ProsNice Staff. Nice, new, shiny machines to work with.

    ConsI was constantly outbid by our own distributors. They could sell the machine for less than the lowest price I was allowed to offer because they bought 80-100 machines at a time and received a huge volume discount. I could not compete on price and really that's all anyone cares about when it comes to copiers. Door to door soliciting in the heat of summer or the freezing winter was pretty awful too. People hated seeing me come in the door. It was downright depressing. It's a VERY unethical industry across the board.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTake the time to truly solicit honest feedback from the guys and gals on the front lines trying to sell your product, not just the branch managers. Develop a lead bank with information on who may need copiers in the area and let your salespeople have access to it, not just the branch manager who then parcels it out to his favorite employees.
