I guess some of the pros would be meeting lots of different people that were friendly and nice out in the shop. In the office Dan the receptionist is always willing to help another person and is really informative.
There unfortunately is so many cons about this company. The first would be the lack of vacation time, you are really looked down upon and almost teased if you take any sort of vacation. Second would be the snooty attitude a lot of people have. There is a huge lack of teaching you anything for you position and what the cover in education you about their products is done in a span of two to three days with other distributors who are looking just to get away for a week from where ever they come in from. If you do not meet standards (which there is not meeting to set goals with your boss or HR) even if you preform well you will not get a promotion or a pay raise. Plus what they don't warn you about is in the summer when they have low work flow people in the shop and hourly in the office get their hours cut. These cuts can go for weeks or months without warning. It just wasn't a pleasant place to work. For all they try and say about it being a family atmosphere work place it was far from that.
Advice to Management
Treat your employees better and really invest in making their time working for you better. Stop the petty office drama and trying building bonds with your team members. More people would stay if you actually got to know them and stopped being so surface and picking your favorite employees.
