    I worked at Empire Today full-time

    Pros

    Empire has invested a lot of time and energy to penetrate the commercial flooring market..

    Cons

    After all the time and money the have spent to become competitive in the commercial flooring market they have very high expectations for the sales team out in the field. Unfortunately it seems that there is no support system in place to help mentor or encourage them. If someone is struggling they are basically told to fix it. There are also significant issues with installations. Empire has a lot of amazing residential installers. Unfortunately, commercial installations are a completely different animal.

    Pros

    Empire Today is interested in developing leaders to become the best person they can be be on the clock and off.

The accessibility to senior management is unlike anything I have ever seen, and they not only listen, they engage and care!

    Long hours with continuous sense of urgency about everything, all the time. .
