    I have been working at Emergent full-time

    Pros

    They care about their employees. And the caring is not just in the form of $$, they have done so much more, for example, immediate travel assistance and tell us to take care of our selves and our families.

    Cons

    Sometimes it feels like the executive vision and the impact to the different business lines.

    Advice to Management

    I would rather have over communication than minimal comms. The lack of information from upper management creates a short term approach for sales people is fiscal year. It's important for there to be additional metrics that will help a rep know they are building a career with a successful co.

    I worked at Emergent full-time

    Pros

    The location is convenient with access to many things--however, it can also become too congested based on the time of day.

    Cons

    The management is incompetent and also misogynistic. They embarrass women employees without shame by commenting on their bodies and their sexuality. Horrible! (And this is on the exec level as well!)

    Advice to Management

    Get new mgmt or sell the company. Understand that the women that work there have value and deserve a respectful and respected voice.

    I have been working at Emergent full-time

    Pros

    This is a small company that does a really good job hiring young, friendly people with a lot of personal drive. They do not micro manage and give you the room to choose your own path.

    Cons

    It's a small company, so sometimes they aren't able to tackle larger, ambitious projects.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing. Love working here.

    I have been working at Emergent full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    benefits, but they are still poor.

    Cons

    Management and not being willing to listen and understand life's hurdles.

    Advice to Management

    Be more compassionate and don't just always assume the worst. Found out it wasn't true didn't you? No apology either.

    Pros

    Young environment, but if you aren't in the "in crowd", you wont make it very far.

    Cons

    Management is VERY judgmental and will only hire "hot blondes" because "it will make more sales". If you are not part of the "boys club" you will be shunned and pushed out of the company.

    Advice to Management

    Stop being so judgmental and give everyone a chance and take the time to learn and listen for your employees. If you want a successful company, you cant only hire candidates on how they look.

    I worked at Emergent full-time

    Pros

    Good work-life balance. If you or your family have an emergency, management very understanding. Micro-managing not oppressive except at end of quarters depending on your manager. Most people there are good to work with. Extra sales incentives at certain times of year. Mostly young (22-30) so has a work hard, play hard feel for majority of employees.

    Cons

    Can be VERY cliquish. Feels like if you are not one of the boys (or certain girls) that your chances for advancement are slim to none. Some members of senior management care more than others as they can be very stand-offish. Commission structure unlike any Ive ever had in any other sales job, needs to be reworked.
