    Pros

    Informal environment, freedom in work

    Cons

    limited growth, raise is next to impossible (I mean it - needs approval from CEO and he normally does approve).

    Advice to Management

    Value your employees or else someone will

    Pros

    Overall a great company and great people. Ability to service customers with international manufacturing strategies.

    Cons

    Frequent Changes in sales staff, both in the Field and Inside, have a negative effect on customer relationships and therefore sales. Employee retention needs more effort.

    Advice to Management

    Keep closer to the salespeople and listen directly to their input about trends and customers and territories. Apply more energy to retention of good employees.

    Pros

    There are some good people / small organization thus less beauracracy and quick to implement ideas / decent line card for a small distributor

    Cons

    Try to be all things to all suppliers and thus set unrealistic expectations on the sales people / to many progams and busy work for sales to make "upset" suppliers happy and thus reduce the selling time of those in sales.

    Advice to Management

    Better pay plans that are competitive in the market and industry / Better equiping of sales people with tools to do their job effectively.
