    Pros

    Great benefits such as insurance, profit sharing, work and life balance. Great working conditions and family environment form team members.

    Cons

    Unfair raises, no room for growth. Poor management. It seemed to be more of a buddy system. Lots of Human Resource issues.

    Advice to Management

    Please consider people based on there skill set and not just because you like the same football team, or from the same community, or are related.

    We do not like to read reviews like this about management. We want leaders at all levels and we expect that managers will treat people fairly, compensate people competitively and promote individuals... More

    Pros

    It was nice company that offered many benefits to its employees. Nice desk size. The cafeteria was also very nice.

    Cons

    Absolutely no room for growth. Pay also sucks for the work load. The managers choose sides. The employees for them to be so much older act like they are in high school. A LOT of people are very unprofessional. There are some good people though. Just do your job and stay to yourself.

    Advice to Management

    Tell your employees to grow up. Give everyone a $2 to $3 dollar pay raise and the bare minimum for the work load that you require. Also communicate with your employees better. We need to know what is going on too.

    I worked at EBSCO Industries full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Benefits are great. Like the corporate office. Lots of support in the beginning. Training was sufficient enough, great software for sales.

    Cons

    VP of the sales team is ambiguous, condescending, motivates by criticism and intimidation. If it isn't his idea or way then it isn't worth hearing. No room for growth. Promotes reps to management with no experience in managing and working with veteran outside sales reps. Poor managing skills, ideas are convoluted and inconsistent. Very poor communication about plans and future concepts. Reps on this team are discouraged, unhappy, not inspired as well as incredibly under paid in commissions for the amount of work we put in. Hierarchy set for revenue, favoritism, and greedy with revenue. Travel expectations are intolerable.

    Advice to Management

    Figure this out.

    I have been working at EBSCO Industries full-time

    Pros

    Good medical insurance, Paid holidays

    Cons

    Never got an evaluation. Claims pay is based on merit but its not. NO training. Your job may be given to someone else and you are not even told, just find out through an email... Turnover rate is unbelievable. Management broadcasts your personal business to the entire department and is VERY unfair. Absolutely no room for advancement. Scam most of their customers out of money.

    Advice to Management

    Need to do some serious evaluations to the managers/supervisors in EIS-BR. If you would review your managers files, emails, etc, you would see how seriously they lack management skills. By far the worst management I have ever worked for both personally and professionally.
