Pros

Great products, great people, great benefits!

Cons

Lack of direct communication from Japanese management, inconsistency of company direction and priorities as the Japanese management influence became more prevalent. There was a growing sense of lack of trust on the part of middle management personnel.

Advice to Management

Senior management need to heed their own philosophy of a strong will to achieve targets, cool mind to make difficult decisions and a warm heart to treat people. They seem to have forgotten about the people portion of the philosophy.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Company name.
    Training is very good.
    A good stepping stone for other sales opportunities.
    Very good access to company resources.

    Cons

    Salary is almost non existent. The only way to make a larger salary is to leave the company and then come back.
    Very difficult to make money year after year.
    Comp plan for managers is not inline with the reps ability to make money on deals.
    Constant changes to comp plan not reflective of potential revenue of accounts.
    Management only focuses on the deal at hand and not about the success or money a rep can make.

    Advice to Management

    Focus more on the success of the reps beneath them and not just getting an order. They need to focus more on strategies about solutions versus how much money they can take out of the deal to win it.
