    Pros

    Fun work environment, tight knit coworker family, calls and emails are manageable, tools to take over and be the main POC on accounts.

    Cons

    Management not on same page, constant clash between sales and credit department, relatively low pay, not much opportunity to advance.

    Advice to Management

    Hire some new blood and dictate accounts around for balance. The senior account managers have most of the major accounts and it causes an imbalance in potential for other account managers.

    Pros

    Decent and fairly priced cafeteria food, located near the Glen. Starting pay was good. Initial training was OK.

    Cons

    Management can be cliquish, expectations are sometimes impossible or unclear, small teams where workload is extremely heavy. Systems are outdated and work-life balance is non-existent. You're micromanaged to complete non-sensical reports or initiatives.

    Advice to Management

    Look out for your employees and don't nit-pick. Have bonus plans that are more applicable to the employee's knowledge and experience.
