    Pros

    The sky is the limit with this company. You are able to sell a large variety od products and services to several industries.

    Cons

    The company does lack some structure. The 401K should have better matching options and travel up to 80% of your time. Other than that, it's a really great company.

    Pros

    Great learning experience and most of the people are friendly. You can take a walk outside during the work day. Free coffee, popcorn, and doughnuts.

    Cons

    Very resistant to change. If you have a new method or idea, be prepared to defend it with your life and to hear no.

    Advice to Management

    If you keep doing the same thing you get the same results. Be more open to change.

    I have been working at Curtis 1000 (More than a year)

    Pros

    Competitive salary. Good management. Work/Life balance is good most of the time. CPP Division is attentive and caring.

    Cons

    CSR support is not good, or at least the one I'm assigned to. I would call her NON Support! Loves to make everything harder than it is. Unwilling to assist. Negative, belittling, difficult to work with.

    Advice to Management

    Streamline the product offerings by segmenting reps to certain items. Too much to sell. Price book support from someone helpful while reps are out trying to sell would be great! Inside employees do not like to help outside sales.

    Pros

    They offer great benefits and work from home.

    Cons

    They need a whole new data system.

    Advice to Management

    They need to provide their sales reps more support to ensure better sales success.

    I have been working at Curtis 1000 full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    I have worked for the company many years. Yes the company has some areas to work on like any other company, yes the job is challenging, yes you have to work hard, yes the company has its up and down. But Curtis 1000 is like family. People really do care for each other here, want to help each other succeed, want you to grow if you put in the time and effort, and in general has good benefits, people, morals, standards, and work environment. The pay is average… you won’t become rich working here but you will definitely be able to pay your bills. I am not sure what the average tenured is at Curtis 1000, but when you ask around a ton of people have been with the company 10, 20, even 30 years. is average. You will not become rich but you will definently be able to pay your bills.

    Cons

    Cons are what you make of them. But in general its time for a management change in some locations at all levels.
