    I have been working at Capitol Office Solutions full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Strong management team and great corporate culture. Employees are offered a career path with an organization that treats them like family with a vested interest in their success.

    Cons

    There is a perception that favorites are sometimes played here, both in management and among reps. Overall, though, hard work is equally recognized and celebrated.

    I worked at Capitol Office Solutions full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    COS/Xerox's culture is world class and the amount of time invested in each employee is truly incredible. The experience this company provided me allowed me to maximize my earning potential and learn with some of the most talented sales reps I've every encountered.

    Cons

    The work is hard and stressful and it's a competitive business. However, the tools are given to you to succeed.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what your doing!

    I have been working at Capitol Office Solutions full-time

    Pros

    Working in the Field - Ever-changing environments and experiences - You are generally left alone if you are productive...but you have to be VERY productive.

    Cons

    Slow salary increases - Very few opportunities for growth unless you are in the sales department - not much imagination for career opportunities in the service department.

    Advice to Management

    Do not neglect the service department - It shouldn't be all about sales

    I have been working at Capitol Office Solutions full-time

    Pros

    There are many pros to working at COS- the aggressive commission structure, the benefits, the parties, the raffles, the positive work environment, the spontaneous days off, the transparency between management and workers, the trips, the work life balance, and there truly is a lot more to write about.

    Cons

    The cons at COS are very limited. One of them being that the hiring process is very selective, but I believe that is probably contributing to why the people are so great here.

    Advice to Management

    The proof is in the numbers. You have managed to achieve plan the last two years. Keep it up, and you will always have a good staff to support you.


  9. "Great organization!"

    Pros

    The support from the top down throughout the company is incredible. There is always someone there to help you achieve whatever your goals are. The training program developed at COS really allows for sales reps to have a ton of success if they put their effort into it. The company wide events and trips are always a plus.

    Cons

    This industry isn't easy by any means. The training is great, but you can't come here expecting to be successful based off the training alone, you need to really work hard and be persistent to see success.

    Pros

    I can't say enough good things about the President, leadership and employees. The President genuinely cares about the culture and employees. The company culture/work environment is very positive and creates an enjoyable and productive workday. Great benefits are a plus too!

    Cons

    I can't think of any cons...

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing!
