    I worked at Baker Distributing full-time

    Pros

    Good Co-workers
    Good Customers/ You get the same customers regularly so you'll get to know all of them
    Good benefits

    Cons

    Poorly managed. Multiple times issues arose because different parts of management disagreed with one another and both would try to slow the other down like children.

    Advice to Management

    There's a reason there is chain of command. Make sure all employees follow it.

    I have been working at Baker Distributing (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Hard working people. The company is going through a tremendous growth phase and new projects keep coming up. Managers treat you an adult and does not micro manage. Casual dress during the summer months and fridays during the other 9 months.

    Cons

    Playing catchup with most things. The projects are not planned out and are impulse.

    Advice to Management

    Office could use some updating. Add a tuition reimbursement program.

    I have been working at Baker Distributing full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I have enjoyed the freedom of my outside sales position in the Atlanta market. And I really enjoy the people I work with.

    Cons

    At times it feels like Baker is just too big. It can take a long time to get things done. There are too many VP's in the corporate office.

    Pros

    Easy computer system to learn and very good product line offering. Great customer retention also with great marketing backup. And great overall communication.

    Cons

    Central ordering through a distribution center by people who have no idea what your local stock levels should be. Limit of $250 for branch managers to buy goods without going through a buyer.

    Advice to Management

    Allow branch managers more of a say in what their branch stocks and the levels of inventory. Also split up the larger zones into smaller ones.
