    Pros

    NONE!..........Not unless you consider harassment and intimidation a good thing!

    Cons

    The only way you will get treated right is if you kiss-up to whomever your manager, and tell tales about your fellow employees.

    Career growth only comes if you leave the company, or know people that are very high up in the company that would move you up themselves.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Your HR staff are EXTREMELY LAZY, and not doing anything to foster the growth of talent within the company.

    I left the company because the LAZY HR staff refused to talk to me about other possible opportunities within the company even though I made it known to several of them. I went somewhere else and DOUBLED my salary in a higher role.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    We need a direct link to upper Management,posted in every break room via Phone or e-mail not the "800" hotlink will not get past certain individuals.

    Pros

    Good exposure to senior management. Very open to new ideas. Lots of opportunities to move around.

    Cons

    Hard to get projects into place (particularly when dealing with certain departments). Too cheap in some areas. Won't spend money where needed at times. Laid off too may people from some key departments and now it is difficult to get certain projects done.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work on communication... stop laying off so many people... and establish a standard for respect.

    Pros

    great benefits. Room for advancement. Worldwide opportunities. Good products

    Cons

    some bad middle management. micro managing. They blamed sales reps for drop in business during the economic downturn. They buy companies and then salespeople compete against them instead of merging with them. Do not value the mom and pop stores. Looking for large business partners. You will work a lot of hours

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stick with what got you here when things were bad. Let reps do their job

    Former Employee - Department Manager in Calhoun, GA

    Pros

    steady paycheck, dedicated and competent workers in the lower ranks,

    Cons

    Subpar benefits and getting worse.

    Narcissistic upper managers brought in from other companies that have failed because of them. Normally a red flag in the hiring process but when HR function is so weak that is what happens.

    Very few paid holidays, and most of those spend working.

    No work / life balance for some, very good for others.

    Certain people frowned on if they work less than 12 hours a day, while others rarely work more than 8 hours. The same people expected to work 12 hours a day are also on call 24/7/365, while the 8 hours a day workers have no other responsiblity after hours. Others allowed or take it upon themselves to work 4 days a week because they refuse to relocate and want to commute back home on Friday.

    Workers that actually care about the company and truly make a difference are either overlooked or fired, while others that only care about themselves and are not truly making a difference are rewarded.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take note of the Cons above as this is very demoralizing to your middle managers and below. You have and will continue to lose outstanding performers if you do not wake up and make a change. Take a serious look at your HR department from the top down.
