    I worked at Continental Resources (Massachusetts) full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    This is a 50-yr-old family owned and operated business that has been very successful in the past. The management works hard at negotiating the best employee benefits they can. The average tenure is high because a lot of their people have been there a long time. There was not a lot of pressure to sell. We had goals, not quotas, which were really only reviewed several times a year.

    Cons

    This company operates with an attitude of "we've always done it that way." In technology, that seemed to me to be very dangerous. Data sheets did not get updated very often. Procedures were very manual. Poor performance was tolerated way too much.

    Advice to Management

    What may have worked for you in the past could possibly be your downfall. To survive in today's business environment, companies need to be constantly looking at how to improve their people, offerings, policies, and go-to-market strategy. It didn't feel like that was happening at ConRes.

    Pros

    Overall nice company to work for. Inside sales people are professional and helpful.

    Cons

    Central Regional Manager offers no value. Poor leadership and provides no sense of direction. Has unprofessional personal behavior. High turnover.
    CRM does not work. Marketing not effective. Stay away!

    Advice to Management

    Allow sales people to have access to account and historical data. Hold sales management accountable. Integrate systems. Have better mix of inventory. Price equipment at a rate that is competitive to get better utilization. Encourage regional communication between sales people to share what works.

    I have been working at Continental Resources (Massachusetts) full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    No Debt, strong financials, Family-owned, Stability in business over 50 years, Full service reseller

    Cons

    Little behind the times. If you have established client base and strength in networking and storage you will do well here. That being said, they are not equipped or forward thinking enough on Cloud

    Advice to Management

    Need to stay on top of the latest trends and not do what you have always done.

    Pros

    This is a very stable, family-owned company that has been in existence for over 50 years. As a result we have many relationships with most of the major vendors and other stakeholders in the IT industry. This gives us many resources to draw on when trying to help our customers solve their IT problems.

    Cons

    This company is still very manual and outdated in their internal processes.

    Advice to Management

    Learn to think outside the box.

    Technologically outdated

    Advice to Management

    You have many employees who are assets to the company, yet are not treated as such. Updates need to happen to attract, train and retain quality employees.
