    Pros

    Professional and interested in customers, clad handling, retaining key accounts and key employees for the long term. Pay is fine considering to opportunities they offer .

    Cons

    Home office is in WI, and so for those not interested in living in that area of the country, fewer promotions than competitor offerings exist. Sometimes this leads to the best candidates not being a part of the top management group.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Regionalize for both field efficiency and in attracting top talent.

    Pros

    Competitive wages, busy workloads, good benefits, schedule flexibility, insightful management. Significantly better corporate culture than other employers in the area.

    Cons

    None yet. I've read some of the negative reviews for this company, and clearly they never worked for any other large corporations, like the large call center down the street. This place treats its people respectfully.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep the culture at Davenport right where it is. This environment if positive, encouraging, and a great place to build a career.

    Lots of potential to increase income. Full benefits as a sales employee. Company car - 6% 401K match at 100% vesting off the bat. Bonus potential is great.

    Health insurance is expensive and comes with a $2,500 deductible and then 80/20.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the great work ~ better health insurance would be nice, even if employee had to contribute more, the option would be terrific.
