    I have been working at MOUNTAIN LTD. full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    I’ve been with the company for some time now, and it’s been a wild ride! Not always easy, but I’ve learned more about business dealings working at MOUNTAIN, LTD™ , then any other job I’ve ever had. You have an opportunity to work with fortune 100 companies and get in the mix with executives that are the captains of their industry. There are uncapped commissions for sales and recruiting, plenty of opportunities for education. 401k with employer contributions, medical, dental, PTO, Holiday, vacation time. This is the type of company where creativity, drive, and passion will take you places.

    Cons

    Call reports are the bane of my existence.....seriously; I wish they would get rid of them. So much for anonymous :)

    Kidding aside, there are challenges at this job that can get overwhelming, but it's been my experience so far that everyone works together to get the job done.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep listening to the employee suggestions, and keep taking them to heart.

    I have been working at MOUNTAIN LTD. full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    It is located in a beautiful setting on the Pineland campus in New Gloucester, Maine. There is an ability to advance within the company if you have the drive and show real interest. The employees are friendly, knowledgeable, and always ready to assist with projects.

    Cons

    The biggest challenges of working here are keeping up with the information train and working with companies in four different time zones.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to offer more diverse training to employees so that they are able to perform their jobs more efficiently.

    I have been working at MOUNTAIN LTD. full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Great work environment. Challenging work provideds variety from day to day. Incentive plans are very generous and established recruiters & sales people can make serious money. Approachable leadership. I plan to work here for a long time.

    Cons

    While the Pineland location is beautiful, it a bit far from Portland and other areas south. Westbook location is a little closer.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue providing employees transparancy. Knowing where the company stands provides a sense of ownership.

    I worked at MOUNTAIN LTD. full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The occasional awkward birthday party

    Cons

    Substandard salary
    No room for professional growth
    Disorganized management

    Deceitful business practices
    No training program for new employees

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take the time to train your employees...give them the tools to succeed. Take the time to realize the assets of the people you have -- there's a goldmine sitting in your offices, and you waste their talent.

    I worked at MOUNTAIN LTD. full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    nice location, incentives, recruiters are paid well. Some opportunity for growth.

    Cons

    Management uses fear tactics and there are clear favorites among staff. Company ethics are questionable- client contracts aren't always followed to the letter. High turnover.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Put more positive focus on your employees instead of focusing on boasting the company name, and you will have happier, more productive, employees.

    Pros

    Fantastic management team in place. They know their business well and it shows. There is a reason that MOUNTAIN, LTD has been named a "Best Place to Work In Maine" for 6 years. Every company has their ups and downs but MOUNTAIN has shown that they can survive anything and come out stronger on the other side.

    None that I can easily identify
