    Pros

    Clean offices with current technical equipment avaliable. Good expense allowance.

    Cons

    Middle management is extremely poor for the upper management to be so educated, strong in character and value driven. Trickle down theory does not happen, at least not in Cincinnati.

    Advice to Management

    Acutally focus on your 3 P's

    Pros

    They try to live by "People-Passion-Purpose"

    Cons

    Silos, Too many Presidents who don't have clear vision, Do not challenge Management or HR, confusing reporting structure, unclear where decisions were made and no real buy in required, so not much successful execution

    Advice to Management

    get out of the way of the leaders you have hired, all the superficial signs of a large company trying to remain caring and flexible.

    Pros

    The base pay portion of the comp plan is decent. There is a lot of freedom to do things as you want and when you want - that is changing as the company is focusing intently on SalesForce. If you do the work and produce some results, you will keep your job.

    Cons

    The training is very poor. I realize it's easy to say that and expensive for a company to provide adequate training. But you just can't give in-experienced sales people a menu of equipment to sell and then say "go sell it now." They are realizing this now as they have just started to bring a specialist in for sweeper/scrubbers - someone who actually knows something about this equipment. As a result, sales have gone up dramatically - wow! Who would have thought that could happen? If you land a large deal they will look for ways to cut your commission. This is done regularly. The sales contract you sign has all this grey area in it with phrases like "at management discretion" and "determined by the good faith of management" which translates into them screwing you out of any money they can. Somebody will sue and win some day. MH is under constant pressure from the manufacturer to increase market share. Their solution to this is to throw more bodies at the territory. So your territory will shrink and this will reduce your chances to make money. Upper management claims to run the company on biblical principles and they regularly throw religion in your face. But I'm not sure where it says in the Bible that you should take advantage of your sales people whenever you can???? Why does the "aftermarket" reps make 30% on some equipment but the equipment rep can sell the same thing and only get 15% on the gross profit? It makes no sense. As someone else said, they think that any cuts we take in compensation are justified because it's for the "good of the company." Sorry but it really doesn't work that way. If you want to make no more than $80K/year, this is a decent place to work.

    Advice to Management

    Learn to really value your employees and sales professionals. I know you think you do but you really don't. When you cut peoples pay, limit the compensation they can make on a sale, constantly change goals and benchmarks - it's demotivating.

    Pros

    Fflexible schedule, strong national account presence for the Hyster and Yale line, if you produce the company will pretty much leave you alone

    Cons

    Upper management really lacks vision and doesn't real understand what it means to develop and train a top tier sales team. The compensation plan is OK but the company thinks that you should work for less becasue you're working for such a great company - that doesn't work. Company preaches "People, Passion, Purpose" but that does not filter down to actions of most employees. When push comes to shove, all they care about is the numbers. Lack of technology really hurts the sales staff. Quoting anything takes so long - it's really unproductive.

    Advice to Management

    Need to get better leadership at the top of the Sales division. Need to re-examine the offering to the sales staff and re-consider. You can't retain or attract elite sales people without an elite compensation package.

    Pros

    The organization as a whole is amazing!! The support from the top to the bottom for a company this large is amazing! Benefits, compensations and health and welfare is the best I've ever seen or heard of for this industry. Truly a caring and compassionate company.

    Cons

    None really unless youre not a team player then you could be isolated out of the loop rather quickly. They want all to achieve and succeed

    Advice to Management

    Better ergonomics for the shop techs.
