    Pros

    Great company. Really cares about the employee owners. Loved working there. Sad how it ended.

    Cons

    Need to return to the Core Values. Mentors should be helpful & actively listen to what is being said.

    Advice to Management

    Core Values, Better training policy that takes into account the workload $ the amount of time allotted to to Time On Task.

    Pros

    Great benefits (med, dental, child care reimbursement, workout facility, personal trainers, special events)

    Cons

    Pay is not even close in line with other sales rep positions in the industry unless you came from a competitor, turning more corporate each day, no direction from management, terrible commission structure that does not motivate, high turn-over with managers, and almost no turnover with reps (even if they do not work... ever!), territory changes way too often, and very difficult to get support from people. Hard to sell our products bc no one knows us and we have nothing to differentiate ourselves from our competitors.

    Advice to Management

    Good luck. I hope you can make it to a year.

    Pros

    lots of good people who know what they are doing
    flexible work hours
    wellness program
    family friendly, e.g., bring your kids to work day

    Cons

    management no longer observes original company values
    employees are less important than bottom line
    Company is now run by people who don't know Restek's business, markets, or customers.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the employees who actually know our business. Return to company core values. Value your employees more than the bottom line.

    Pros

    The best part of working here is that they allow for a great work-life balance. In addition, the benefits are great and they have an on-site workout facility with trainers. The company continues to look for ways to grow and bet their competitors.

    Cons

    Change seems to be the hardest thing for the company. However, leadership and other employees often realize there is a need for change, and address the situation. It just takes more time than most companies.

    Pros

    Health benefits are excellent, focus on wellness is outstanding and there is encouragement for growth in terms of career path. Culture is unique and most people are generally pleasant to work with. PTO

    Cons

    There are growing pains associated with becoming a larger company (in both revenue and personnel). This stress is felt throughout the company, but for the most part there are changes being made constantly to try and reduce this stress and ensure the future of the company.

    Advice to Management

    Please focus on core values and realize the importance of treating your employees as you would like to be treated. Don't cover-up mistakes or wait until a solution has been found to make the problem known. There are many people here at all levels who can help to solve problems.

    Cons

    no portion of the compenstation structure is up to par with leading companies. managment is more concerned with the status quo and thier own longevity then keeping a long term well working and stable company around.

    Advice to Management
