    Learned a lot but confusion rules

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Atlanta, GA

    ProsOld, established company, good products, some smart people there

    ConsKnee-jerk reactions to market fluctuations, they have massive layoffs to show investors they are "serious about cost cutting" then add staff gradually, then another layoff, then more rehiring... rinse, repeat...

    Advice to Senior ManagementThink about 5 years from now, not 5 months from now and stop treating your valuable, loyal employees like expired bread.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    They are moving towards eliminating sales reps altogether.

    Sales Representative (Former Employee) DeSoto, TX

    ProsYou are your own boss. I technically had 5. The last one, hadn't made contact in a year and a half.

    ConsTotally unorganized. Getting anything done except placing orders is impossible. Plus, I think they are moving towards eliminating their sales force to local distributors.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTrain your sales force. Don't just send them out with a three day course of sales 101.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Basic Inside Sales Position

    Inside Sales (Former Employee) Chicago, IL

    ProsThe inside sales team had a very strict daily schedule. This was my first sales position and I learned basic sales skills. Steady pay-check.

    ConsNot much room for upward opportunities. Low commission structure. Every day is exactly the same with not much opportunity

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Good experience but unstable

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Atlanta, GA

    ProsGood people who care about what they do. Open work environment. Substantial decision-making and job autonomy. Managers tend to delegate and leave you to figure out how to get things done.

    ConsManagement is not very strategic. Often resorts to layoffs to improve financial results. Individuals are often moved or promoted into positions that they are not qualified to hold.

    Advice to Senior ManagementUtilize an external organizational consultant to create consistent practices across business units.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Sales rep

    Sales Representative (Former Employee) Houston, TX

    Pros(Houston project)great manager, very supportive. Great group of people to work with.

    ConsThey treat you like a sweat shop. you have a higher goal/quota every month. No structure and no standard company best practice or way of doing the job. High expectations and not given the proper tools to be successful.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTake time out and see how other companies are doing business and investing in employees . That way your turn over would be lower and your ROI will go up.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
