    Pros

    The pay is OK. Not great but fair. If you worked at a plant with a good plant manager who treated people fairly it was a very good place to work. If you worked for someone who treated people like they were less than human it was not a pleasant work experience. I will have to say that those are few and far between. Also if you are within the company these managers are well known.

    Cons

    Jobs could be boring at times. Also hard to move up especially if you were over 40.

    Advice to Management

    Reward the people who have been with the company and made it what it is.

    Great culture; many opportunities for growth (within the corporate structure with hard work); company manages with high integrity and values

    Mobility within the sales force is limited; sales comp is not transparent; a few senior sales people hoard accounts

    Create a more transparent sales commission program for commercial account managers

    Pros

    The compensation is better than most companies for this position. For the most part the environment is friendly.

    Cons

    The opportunity for advancement is often left up to the whole "who you know, not what you know" philosophy. If your a woman it's a "Boy's Club" and hard to break into.

    Advice to Management

    I suggest management take into consideration personality types before forming teams.

    Pros

    Pros of working here is one week of vacation first year, two weeks the second - fourth year and then 3 weeks 5th year. Pay is unbeatable for entry level around the area.

    Cons

    Management pretends to care about what you need, but they do nothing to help you. They have no idea how to do any job, so don't expect to get anything out of them.

    Advice to Management

    Show your employees you care, and not by cooking popcorn and handing out a couple drinks...

    Pros

    Busy, steady, get breaks(long enough to only go to the toilet). HR dept (very, very rude, non-confidential, promote their friends, makeup phony cases to prevent promotions). Promote(people who are trashy, wear clothes with breasts revealing & TMs complain don't handle their work).

    Cons

    Pay is lousy, lousy, lousy. Not a living wage. Can't afford medical copays. No advancement unless friends with management. Workload extensive for time to complete; thus errors and then you're dinged. . Most mgrs unbelievably dumb, few with college degrees; no promoting those with degrees then. Solicit PI/PA requests then do not implement or steal your ideas & give you no credit. 2 10 min. breaks a day - leaves you time to go to the toilet and that's it.

    Advice to Management

    Hire mgrs with a brain instead of those who think talking in circles is intelligent. Too many layers of management. Hire people who have a sense of urgency - most product doesn't get out the door because the work ethic is too Southern - too SLOW.
