    I have been working at Blue Technologies full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    This company offers a decent salary and carries a good product line. Good facility and entertaining Christmas parties

    Cons

    Meetings are belittling and upper management beats their people up. A lot of smoke and mirrors in the compensation department

    Advice to Management

    Use constructive criticism to build up your team rather than ripping them down and expecting good results.

    I have been working at Blue Technologies full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Great bonus structure it seems if you are successful.

    Cons

    You have to use your own personal laptop and cell phone although they do give you a $50 phone credit. They actually have panty hose as part of the dress code and enforce it. There is a monthly Wednesday evening meeting for those in Cleveland and quarterly for Columbus office. You get 0 vacation or sick days your first year. You can take them unpaid but have to be there for a year to get reimbursed. After a year you...

    I have been working at Blue Technologies full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great comp plan! Great incentive trips. Training and development are a priority. There is always something new to learn. Collaboration of new hires and veteran employees amongst the different divisions is beneficial.

    Cons

    You have to be self-motivated. The employees that are successful are ambitious and hardworking. If you are just there to collect a basic paycheck... you will not be successful.

    Advice to Management

    A refresh of internal technology and software would help in productivity.

    I have been working at Blue Technologies

    Pros

    It's a wonderful group of people. The management staff across the board are tenured and very good at what they do. We work hard and play harder. Upper management are available and open to hear all suggestions and are now more than ever open to change.

    Cons

    There is a lot expected of you. We don't accept mediocrity.

    I have been working at Blue Technologies

    Pros

    This is a workplace where people who want to work on a winning team are united. It is a "roll up your sleeves and get dirty" mentality due to the company's Commitment to Excellence. This is embraced from the warehouse to the service to the sales team. The company also has recently invested in consultants to help perpetuate development of both management teams and training programs.

    Cons

    If you are not ready to commit yourself 100%, you will easily stand out.

    Advice to Management

    Looking forward to benefitting from all of the new development programs that are currently being rolled out.

    I worked at Blue Technologies full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The owners drive really expensive cars and wear expensive suits to show off "success". I guess that's a pro for them.

    Cons

    Too many to list, but let's just say it's sleazy. They hire a bunch of people then fire or force out people and the process repeats itself. 1 in 4 new hires makes it past one year...they will tell you that AFTER you're hired.

    Advice to Management

    Stop reminiscing about the old days of football or when you sold typewriters or how you only missed one month of commission ever and provide your sales people a service they can stand behind in the sale to go along with a decent product (Xerox is still better).
