    Pros

    The experience over all is great, lots of things to learn, people is really nice overall.

    Cons

    Salaries are really poor compare to its competitors. Lots of work, lack of payment!

    Advice to Management

    They are not very consistent with payment ranges. They usually wait untill the last minute to offer a better salary when it is already too late!

    Pros

    Great company. Lots of exposure and a lot of opportunity!

    Cons

    I hear of other companies that truly reward their people for doing their jobs and more so. It seems often times here, once you start really doing well, they change something so you aren't paid as much and aren't as successful, to make you work harder for less...

    Advice to Management

    Wish management had better visions towards rewarding hard working employees and wanting their employees happy and excited to come to work.

  6. Great company, and great people

    Pros

    Many entry level positions for college students looking for first careers. Lots of growth potential. Tons of different departments to look into if you are undecided on what you want to really do. Flexible work scheduling. Upper Management/Directors typically all have open door policy and are great mentors. Over 1,500 people on campus so you can meet a lot of people and network.

    Cons

    Pay compared to similar positions at other companies in the industry is lower. Not a very profitable company so lay-offs, freezing 401k matching, not getting your annual pay raise and not giving out holiday bonuses happen quite often. Departments budgets are always tight so promotions typically only happen when someone leaves that position. Employees are always complaining about how much they get paid for the number of hours they work.

    Advice to Management

    Give advise to lower level positions about options to grow and shadowing opportunities in other departments and areas.

    Pros

    Gute Kollegen, Abteilungsübergreifendes Arbeiten kann wirklich gut funktionieren

    Cons

    Das mittlere Management oftmals überfordert, Sozialkompetenz ist hier meistens auch nicht wirklich vorhanden

    Advice to Management

    Das mittlere Management in einzelnen Fällen dringend überprüfen und gegebenenfalls austauschen

    Pros

    Free stuff
    Great people
    Management (in my experience) supports their employees

    Cons

    So many:

    SSRs aren't considered to be sales people so they get no cut of their team's commision. For example: SSRs are expected to place the majorty of their team's orders but it makes no difference in their pay if they spend half a day placing a million dollar order or place 20 easy orders. On top of that, a lot can go wrong that isn't your fault but everyone will point their fingers. The order placement system is complicated to say the least and you have to remember a million different specifics depending on what vendor you're placing the order for. Orders also have to touch many departments to be released. If you don't follow up with logistics because they didn't release the order, it's your fault again that the customer didn't recieve their product. At the end of the day a customer isn't happy if they don't recieve their order so you have to play every single role and other departments aren't held to the same responsibility as you are. Because of that there is a lot of pressure on SSRs to place orders correctly, fix issues, and do everything else for their team's very spoiled and demanding customers.

    And for all of that pressure you get paid 13 an hour.

    Your day will be spent drowning in emails, calls, figuring out why the system is glitching, and waiting on Vendors to explain why they delayed shipment for the third time so your angry customer will stop calling.

    Advice to Management

    Redefine this position and raise pay. SSRS deserve better.
    Have more pressure on other departments to perform their jobs correctly.
