    Pros

    Benefits and flextime and we can work from home if needed

    Cons

    Embarrassing pay after many loyal years

    Advice to Management

    Give merit raise instead of splitting the pot. Some people work harder then others and some do not work there full 40 hrs nothing ever gets done about it

    Pros

    PTO Work environment Mostly good people Quarterly bonuses if goals are met Great training program

    Cons

    Middle Management has no experience Upper management doesn't understand business Company offers a lot of PTO but expects you not to take it or work while on PTO

    Advice to Management

    Stop micromanaging and trust your employees to do their jobs. Get rid of the people that shouldn't be there and focus on maintaining the good talent.

    Pros

    Excellent product, well-run company with strong training and processes. Caring company with good benefits and some generous perks (company gifts and events, sales meetings in warm climates etc)

    Cons

    One product company in mature, saturated market. Feels like the best years have been in the past for domestic sales. Not much upside for growth or income for salespeople.

    Advice to Management

    Use extensive expertise to develop complementary products to sustain growth.
