Pros

Decent Compensation and benefits. Good Products.

Cons

The management don't care about employees. They fire people left and right for no reasons...continuous turnover in upper and middle management, no growth opportunity until you have any connections with the management.Promotions are not based on performance but who knows who... run away when a recruiter calls about an opening. They will offer you a good package but GOOD Luck for job security .... good package is just short term...

Advice to Management

Think realistic and develop and communicate the plans and objectives to employees.

    Doesn't Recommend
    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Strong brand name, big installed base, strong distribution relationships

    Cons

    Stodgy , old boy, management. Low level of communication from corp. Not a cutting edge mfr.,
    more a middle of the pack product mix. Lot's of get along to go along, from long term employees, not a company that wants to hear ideas from the field.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of longtime Regional VP's, who have no idea what goes on in the field. Have Reg. VP's spend more time in the field and less playing golf and sucking down drinks at tradeshows.
