    I have been working at Cosentino North America full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    None that I can think of outside of the friends and family discount on products at a 40% discount.

    Cons

    Breakdown in culture and professionalism. Highly unorganized and mismanaged organization from the top down. Right hand doesn't know what the left hand is doing. Intolerant of employees who voice concern or opinion. Too much reporting and not enough time to focus on goals, objectives and ultimately customers which creates an atmosphere of conflict internally between field staff and the corporate office in Sugarland. Huge disconnect as a result that is causing the loss of market-share nationally.

    Advice to Management

    Reflect on best practices and implement them into your organization so that the revolving door of employee turnover comes to an end. Respect your employees as they are the core of your business and success as well as the front line and greatest touch point to your customers. Master-marketing, as powerful of a machine as it is for COS, will not make up for the individuals touching customers in the field. They are your greatest 'Brand'.

    Pros

    Cosentino is a very busy atmosphere. There are constantly new things to look forward to and every day is a new challenge. I also enjoy the people I work with. I feel the pay and benefits are very fair. It seems like there is a lot of promotion from within but I haven't experienced that yet.

    Cons

    I can see how the fast pace can be frustrating when you want to master your job and it can feel overwhelming at times but I rather be busy than bored. If you let the workload get to you the work/life balance aspect can seem daunting. Steer clear of the petty drama.

    Advice to Management

    Value the good contributors to your teams and make it known that you are appreciative. Set goals and clearly outline how to achieve them.

    I worked at Cosentino North America (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Not many, company strategy is weak. The corporate management is unorganized and not together.

    Cons

    Many. They use a CRM like many companies do called Sales Force. Cosentino uses it as a micro management tool. People don't like to be micro managed. Most of the employees are lying about what they do to achieve their goals because the management puts a heavy load on them to achieve programs that they introduced to make themselves look good. Employees are like worker bees going in circles. Heavy turnover. Not treated fairly.

    Advice to Management

    Restructure Sales Force. Come up with a sales plan that includes a obtainable dollar sales quota per quarter instead of goals in Sales Force.
