    Pros

    Fast paced, if you are in sales a good bit of control over your income, union environment.

    Cons

    Archaic systems slowed progress. Leadership seems to want to grab on to he next shiney object - change for the sake of change.

    Advice to Management

    Be honest that you are trimming costs to set up for an IPO. Enable sales to spend time selling, rather than working through layers of administrative junk.

    Pros

    Pretty good medical/dental benefits, 401K, pension, union environment.
    The company is trying to establish a hip atmosphere.

    Cons

    they're not quite getting the hip atmosphere. Employees are constantly feeling threatened of the company being sold & losing one's job. Management-heavy.

    Advice to Management

    Empower your employees a bit more to make conscientious decisions and hear them out. Too many meetings that do not give useful info.

    Pros

    Great pay, if you're a closer. Flexibility, great training and culture. Good product set that businesses need and want.

    Cons

    Many duties being shipped abroad which makes communication difficult. Sometimes difficult to find new accounts. Can be a tough environment when getting pulled by the customer and internally, but that's any sales organization.

    Pros

    Good environment, employees are treated for the most part with respect. Management is open to new ideas and generally forthcoming with company direction and financial results. Fair compensation and bonus structure.

    Cons

    Old out dated technology and systems. Rush products to market before they meet minimum industry standard and are fully vetted. Some veteran employees are change resistant and are unwilling to adapt and change to fit the current market and business environment.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in new technologies and systems. Make sure products are best in class before going to market. Fix the disconnect and culture class between Glendale and Tucker offices.

    Pros

    Paid parking, fully stocked kitchens on all floors, educational incentives, most of the staff are open and friendly.

    Cons

    The company is notorious for releasing products that have not been fully tested. The products usually cannot provide the ROI that are promised at the time of purchase. Sales makes promises to customers that cannot be accomplished. Support staff are left on the hook for explaining that this is no real guarantee in advertising or why the products are not working. Suggestions to upper management are rarely implemented from staff or users of their site.

    Advice to Management

    I wish you would listen more to the users of your site and take in consideration the thoughts of some of lower end staff members.
