I worked at Abatix (More than 8 years)
The company as a whole is a good company to work for. They care about their employees and go out of their way to make the working environment fun, company wide. Most employees are there for the long haul because of this. Great vacation package. They treat their customers like gold. Each branch hosts a large party for all their customers every year. Everyone has a wonderful time, including employees.
The health plan they use is based out of TX and is not very well established in the state in which I worked making it challenging to find drs that accepted the plan. As with most companies, the Customer Service Reps are not recognized like they should be, although they did, start allowing the CSRs to attend the yearly sales meetings about three years ago.
Advice to Management
Corp should have a better idea what is going on at each branch. I feel they should give out evaluations on each Branch/Regional Manager to each employee at the branch level. These evals should be anonymous. They would learn some really interesting things about what really goes on at each branch.
