    I have been working at Adams Remco full-time

    Pros

    You basically work your own schedule and no one really bothers you about anything.

    Cons

    No one bothers you about anything. Management is completely hands off and doesn't help employee reach potential. There is limited to no actual training on the products they sell. I was hired, given some online training to do, then basically turn loose on my own to "figure it out" as my manager put it.

    Advice to Management

    get involved in your company.

    Pros

    There are no pros, none.

    Cons

    Poor management, stagnant salaries that start below average. Many have not had a raise since cuts in 2008 and 2009. Plenty of money for officers of the family owned company, none to pay employees what they are worth.

    Advice to Management

    Sell, or make it an employee owned company, they would run it better than absentee figureheads.

    I worked at Adams Remco full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Good work atmosphere
    Really liked my co-workers
    Feeling of satisfaction when you help clients
    Good beliefs and values from the company as a whole

    Cons

    Too much emphasis on appearance (E.g. Slightly scuffed shoes are an issue for service technicians)
    Low pay
    Told "you have lots of freedom"... but I was monitored very closely, and if I made one decision my boss disagreed with, I had to do it his way.
    You basically have no vacation time until you've worked a year; their vacation system is calendar-based and you earn days based on how long you worked in the previous year.
    Outdated technology and work practices
    There is no room for advancement. Promotions are entirely seniority-based, and the people in management have been with the company for many, many years.

    Advice to Management

    Loosen the reigns. Focus on making your employees happy, and they will want to do a good job. Do not fear change. Upgrade. Give your employees vacation time within the first year! They can still accrue time on a per-month basis, but the calendar system makes no sense and makes it very hard to retain new employees.
