    Pros

    -Very competitive base salary and comp plan -High quota, but with all of the resources that they provide it is definitely achievable -Great benefits -EVERYTHING is comped -Management is there for you to help you to succeed in any way possible -Promote from within -Consistently breaking sales records quarter after quarter and always reward sales team for doing so -Little to no micromanagement -Young environment -You are praised frequently and publicly for your success -Training process is detailed and extensive...you will become a killer salesman -You can ACTUALLY speak to upper management and they are fantastic people

    Cons

    Honestly cannot think of any downsides at all. They had some issues with some of the sales reps in the past that seem to have been completely resolved.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work motivating and praising the sales reps. I have never been part of an organization that rewards and praises people like MRC does.

    Pros

    There is a ton of opportunity here for the right person as long as you work very hard and get along great with people

    Cons

    The training program is extremely weak and the infrastructure to support all the day to day operations is also weak

    Advice to Management

    Step your game up and get more detailed in what you teach. Training does a great job at motivating but that's about it. Also, the marketing material is outdated and looks like it's from the 90's. Wishing you the best you're all pretty kind people.


  3. Good benefits...not so great management

    I worked at MRC

    Pros

    Good company benefits, good training programs to learn the computer programs and plenty of online training and video conferences to increase knowledge of software used on a daily basis.

    Cons

    Did not have very good management skills in the small field office that I worked in. Lacked communication between front office and back warehouse.

    Advice to Management

    Promote better communication between employees. Have managers more involved with the employees to let them know how they are doing. Give more feedback.

    Pros

    Director of Credit and Collection at the Tulsa location is a dynamic leader and worker harder than those she supervised. Great Boss.

    Pros

    Growing Company, no layoffs. Major room for upward mobility, you control your limits. Very supportive senior staff towards personal development. Presidents Club is a big plus. Meet your Sales goals and you go. It's a little more subjective for support staff, but the stars always shine and get recognized.

    Cons

    Some employees have a big corporate attitude of it's not my department/job. Some employees are too eager to place blame when something doesn't work correctly.

    Advice to Management

    You have really stressed the concept of workgroups and teamwork in the last year. Keep the focus on it. Discourage the 'blame game'. Encourage and reward the inter-department assistance that you see.

    Pros

    Great entry level job for college grads who are looking for some sales experience to leverage for their future job search.

    Cons

    Bad reputation with large universe of former customers. It's never about doing what is right for them and all about building huge profit into every sale. Poor training.

    Advice to Management

    Try to limit turnover of the sales force by reducing the number and increasing the size of sales territories. Provide adequate training and reasonable goals.

    The leadership of the organization is second to none! They will focus on you and help you achieve your goals and expectations!! Top rate orgnaization.

    Cons

    Pros

    Gained experience in the type of company I do not want to work for. Learned to recognize signs of poor management.

    Cons

    Little to no product knowledge training, poor compensation package, good ol' boy management practices, saturated market, low company morale, poor company culture

    Advice to Management

    Get some outside feedback from an independent party (not other cores or Xerox). The market place is ever changing along with the workforce, learn to adapt.
