Pros

The work was challenging and efforts made immediate and measurable impacts. Great opportunity to make a difference. Teams of resources were committed to the success of the company. Stable industry with strong and predictable annual earnings.

Cons

The Corporate Executive Management team was in the dark ages and had no idea how to lead, manage or make technology decisions in an outsourced environment. Management of the outsourced supplier was not effective because the IT team did not know how to manage deliverable based services and did not work to partner with the supplier. Rather, the IT leadership promoted a very antagonistic environment and finger pointing atmoshpere.

Advice to Management

Get some fresh blood and make some bold leadership changes. Get rid of all the insecure leaders and make sure that leadership courage is rewarded. Learn to operate as a single company, not seperate divisions.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Great quality products to sell. Management is easy going and understanding of family/work balance. Great benefits. Car, cell, laptop, gas card.

    Cons

    Travel is sometimes too extensive. Tech support in the field is literally non existent. Base salary is not very competitive.

    Advice to Management

    Management should really look at figuring out a way to get better communication between the technical support and the people in the field. Customers are lost everyday because the DM's cannot deliver answers to their problems.


  2. "Communication and brand management skills"
