    Pros

    Very friendly people. Can be very flexible with hours especially which was super nice for college students.

    Cons

    We all worked in on open space, which could make it hard to concentrate if someone else was being loud for whatever reason.

    Pros

    By and large you are responsible for selling a great product that comes with instant name recognition. Can do what you want in the sales territory.

    Cons

    Lots of layers of management besides your supervisor. There are business development managers that don't do any developing. It is nearly impossible to make a bonus because of the buckets you have to fill rather than being based on growing a territory. Price is a hindrance to further sales, but management doesn't understand competitive market. Too many different business units only confuses the hell out of customers.

    Advice to Management

    Understand the competitive landscape, don't have so many BDMs because all they want to do is travel as a job, and stop putting up walls for the sales team. I can sell to this industry but not that one. I can sell one type of instrument but not the other. It takes 3-4 Emerson salespeople to equal the products that a rep can offer. You have successfully buried great companies within a giant behemoth as brand names but not yet integrated a single business unit. Bravo!
