    Pros

    ISO certified so they have strict processes which can be good. Never get emails after work or on weekends. So good work/life balance

    Cons

    The strict processes are also bad though. This makes it hard to complete sales in a timely manner


  3. Good culture but unique. Really good place to hone your skills.

    Pros

    Great experience and a good place to build a career. Environment is always changing which can lead to some frustration. Strong brand in the industry.

    Cons

    Definitely has some quirks but if you learn to adapt (good experience anyway) you will be fine.
    Also as a con, Environment is always changing which can lead to some frustration

    Pros

    Employees from middle management and below are bright, passionate and fully capable to increase productivity if not micro-managed

    Cons

    Upper Management / CEO is adverse to change and relies on historical data versus current market trends.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the dead weight and reach your decisions in a collaborative and not dictatorial fashion.

    Pros

    Co workers were dedicated professionals -- smart and eager. Another pro - I don't work there anymore.

    Cons

    Repressive and frustrating upper management entrenched in a pattern of pendulating from one business direction to another. . . . they never gave any plan a chance to make an impact..

    Pros

    Solid company to work for. Good benefits and strong team culture. Everyone at the office is friendly and always ready to help.

    Cons

    It sometimes has too many bureaucratic tendencies restricting employees. Team atmosphere should not make you jump through hoops and receive a certified stamp of approval from a faceless group to determine whether you are deserving of a compensation adjustment

    Advice to Management

    Keep up morale with some better out of office activities

    Pros

    There really are not any pro's here execpt the base is reasonable considering the area.

    Cons

    Rumors ran rampant at this company. No room for advancement. Managers treat advancement as a popularity contest and do not consider workers with great numbers and merit.

    Advice to Management

    Sell the company.

    Pros

    The company was a flat organization and they provided a lot of small fun activities. fairs ect when there was a holiday for example at Valentines day they gave everyone in the organization a red or pink cup cake

    Cons

    There is not a lot of advancement potential. There is a lot of in-fighting between markets.

    Advice to Management

    Pay your employees better.

    Pros

    The people are smart and helpful. The company is pretty laid back, and the benefits are pretty good.

    Cons

    Management loves to preach how they want to act like an enlightened company, but they come back time and again to micromanage. Raises are a joke - you only are considered if you ask.

    Advice to Management

    New blood is needed - try and actually be a bigger company and you might succeed.
