    Great training for another career

    Field Sales Representative (Former Employee) Montreal, QC (Canada)

    ProsTraining
    Catalogue launch
    Michelle Lemire and her efforts.

    ConsMust be from France to advance
    Too much admin for reps
    always in meetings, no time to sell
    Montreal management - too junior
    No control on pricing - management always plays with pricing, so you waste your time making proposals
    National mgr's play with field accounts, lose them, and stick you with the numbers - you will be held responsible
    expected to be on the road 40 hrs per week, admin at night. You are only paid for 37.5 hours
    Base salary is okay, but if you look, there is better out there.

    Advice to Senior ManagementStop hiring these junior managers. They have caused more turnover than any other situation at Lyreco

    The company is innovative with outstanding optimised internal processes in all areas. Leaded by a charismatic CEO

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsTrust junior people with opportunity to developp great carreers quickly
    Great place to developp and meet senior managers
    Internship motivation program

    ConsLow salaries - package is poor
    No possibility to renegotiate your package and appraisals are not the place to discuss reasons of success or failures

    Advice to Senior ManagementToo huge discrepancies between different managers. Sales got usually the best ones.
    It seems that less focus is given to other departments

    Great company to start your sales career at.

    Field Sales Representative (Former Employee) Toronto, ON (Canada)

    ProsThey give the outside sales team lots of support, and their methodology is a great system to use. Lots of freedom as an outside sales rep, great time off with no hassle, work from home office, and a great $7000 annual car allowance.

    ConsNot paid very well, high turnover, and their 1st week of initial training is brutal, it is geared toward somebody who has absolutley no idea about selling, yet, to be an outside sales rep you need experience. They really need to change their training program.
    Not very well respected by customers, think about it, you sell pens and paper.

    Advice to Senior ManagementPay more.
    Change training program.
    Pay more attention to the Canadian Operation.
    At the last sales convention in Montreal, Eric Bigeard clearly stated in his speech that Canada was doing terrible, not something nice to say at a sales convention when it's supposed to be positive.

    Compensation revisit

    Territory Sales Representative (Current Employee) London, ON (Canada)

    Prosvery competitive industry, great training programs, good people that work as colleagues all over the country. also very interesting opportunites throughout the world.

    Consstructure of how to manage sales. i.e. margins etc., can be a bit confusing. Sales expectations sometimes difficult to achieve to reach 'bonus'. this aspect has been and can be very discouraging for people who are out there beating the pavement and working to increase sales only to be held back by the fact the margin is not sufficient or within the parameters outlined by senior management.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBonus structure should be reworked. it can be very difficult to maintain a margin level along with the increased sales as pre-determined at the beginning of the fiscal year. the industry is constantly changing and it's important we are more flexible and move along with the iminent changes.
