    Great starting salary poor advancement opportunities

    Inside Sales (Former Employee) Milford, MA

    ProsHours are regular with weekends off and the pay to start is great. Benefits are pretty good as well.

    ConsThe company is very top heavy with many bloated salaries of upper management that the company could do without. There is a massive disconnect between upper management and the regular employees. There is also very little room for advancement in the company as a sales rep unless you want to get into the field which very few of us wanted to do.

    Advice to Senior ManagementOffer better leadership on advancement within the company.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Frustrating place to work

    Technician (Current Employee)

    ProsGood pay. Decent benefits. Great place to start after school, make some money, get some experience, and move on. There are a few good people that work for this company.

    ConsVery top heavy with management. Management in place usually has no experience in field or work, however are experts on the subject. Extremely micro managed. Nobody is allowed to do their job without being constantly spied on. Just like working in a snake pit. You never know who is gunning for you. Just about impossible to advance. Good old boy system very much in effect. Issues and concerns even safety related are not addressed properly. You are expected to take up the slack for managements inabilities to do their job. Example: A project has a deadline to be completed, management has not scheduled correctly, or has failed to get materials needed, or has failed to appropriate correct amount of man power, you are going to be expected to make up the difference and get the project done on time. If it isn't, your at fault.

    Advice to Senior ManagementClean house. Your business would be much more efficient without these cancerous people in place.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    A place to receive a paycheck not a place to develop a career.

    Finance (Former Employee) Milford, MA

    ProsCompensation is decent to start depending on your job title. After that, don't expect much in the way of incentive or merit increases.

    ConsNo room for advancement. Very poor communication between departments through management. Limited holiday time off.

    Advice to Senior ManagementImprove communication between management and employees. Show interest in employee development, ideas and job satisfaction. Improve antiquated computer system and company policies. Focus needed on professional communication intercompany and that does not include the free use of expletives.

    Customers come 2nd

    Sales (Current Employee)

    ProsAs a company MC is far from an industry leader, however, the products they sell are the leaders. 95% of the product line sells itself so it's a great place if you want to take orders from customers.

    ConsZero room for growth. Under no circumstances will they give you a raise based on tenure and/or performance. If you want a stepping stone right out of college then it's place is for you. If your looking for a long upward trending career this is not the place for you.

    Advice to Senior ManagementSet some goals for each rep based on territory yields. Use those goals to come up with a compensation structure that will reward over achievement and drive incremental revenue. This is something that every good sales driven company has. Lastly don't promote good sales reps to mgmt positions promote good leaders.

    Prominent company with disconnect between management and their employees

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsDecent compensation, the company is a reputable Caterpillar dealer, business is strong and growing. There are some great people to work with and learn from.

    ConsCommunication is poor, employee turnover is high, many jobs don't pay what they should, and an overall unpleasant work environment. There are people in management roles that aren't fit for leadership, lack of structured training, and no open door policy. Doing things right one day, then days/weeks later find out they should have been done differently.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBe more willing to communicate with your employees, create incentives and opportunities to improve morale because it needs it badly and you have employees that deserve better treatment. Are there opportunities for growth within the company? Yearly job fairs could help employees understand what others in the company do and also become aware of the many opportunities there are to move up in the company, if there are any.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Working for a Leader

    Management (Current Employee)

    ProsWorking for the industry leader has its advantages and burdens. Company is well financed and positioned for growth. Should punish some competitors who got too thin during this downturn.

    ConsChange is a challenge; past success leads to caution. Communication from management to employees lacks.
