    I worked at Rainin Instrument full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Top of the line product line.

    Cons

    Not allowed to find new accounts due to conflict with inside sales. Not a true Sales position. More of a account baby sitter.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop holding your sales team back.

    Pros

    good reputation in the industry

    Cons

    terrible salary, terrible commission, limited field support from company management

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take a step back, look at how things were run when the company was performing well. Go back to this model, stop blaming field personnel for bad company performance, look at the direction you are taking the company from your position. It hasn't worked lately, perhaps go back to what was working

    Rainin Instruments is a good company to work for, but in a tough market.

    Pros

    Small company feel with lots of opportunity for talented self starters - easy to make a difference and stand out. Security of a larger company as they are owned by Mettler Toledo.

    Cons

    Top down, sometimes disconnected corporate management. Not a strong fit with other business units within the corporation creates misleading comparisons. Quarter to quarter financial management leads to slow business development and an aversion to investment in infrastructure.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be objective. Carefully consider market differences of your various business units. Don't starve Rainin by reducing investment to compensate for a down market.

    Listen to employees and stop micro-managing, the success of RAININ in the past has stemmed from those that valued the customer and provided a quality product that everyone is proud of.
