    Base pay is really low, wish the base pay was higher which would keep the employee retention numbers high in my opinion .

    Nothing i would change other then raising the base pay

    Pros

    Overall a great company that treats employees fairly and with realistic expectations. The company has an excellent training program and sales management team that will help develop your sales skills. The company offers numerous incremental career path advancements as your sales skills increase and you gain more experience in more successive Sales roles.

    Cons

    Not a lot to say here. If you do not want to put the work into being successful than any Sales job is really not for you. The office equipment market is mature with lots of competition between vendors and suppliers. You have to have the drive to make things happen and the will to beat out the competition,

    Pros

    Great technology. Great benifits plan. Nice people.

    Poor management. Low salary. Not much opportunity to grow. In hiring, racial bias is still a problem. Lack of diversity in sales and management (99% white - besides the call center). White man manage and sells printers & solutions. Black man answer phone in call center. Very old school way of selling. Poor culture not in line with any new organizations.

    Advice to Management

    Need a culture change.

    Systems and sales office space feel right out of 1990. Too much red tape around everything. Using 10 different systems to do the work of one.
