    Pros

    The people are top notch, and the company takes great care of employees from a compensation and leadership development perspective.

    Pros

    still trying to find one

    Cons

    No customer service work ethic, They make us promise our customers rebates and then never follow through. Constant complaints from customers who never received the rebates that have been submitted over and over again. Placing customers on hold then hanging up on them when no "manager" is available. upper management is never available. Company has no consistency of any kind.
