Pros

New management team in place now seems to have our interests in mind. Plenty of potential to make money in commission. Plenty of training and resources are available. Good commission plan to compensate for below market base.

Cons

No college reimbursement - 2 weeks vacation. Could be more competitive in base salary, but makes up for it in the commission plan. Seems that the new mid-level management team does not have ability to make decisions regarding day to day business items, without checking with a senior management. could be a long ramp for some who are not hungry and only log in an 8 hour day.

Advice to Management

Review current market conditions and adjust salaries before you lose more sales people. Continue to create and promote a positive work environment.

    Pros

    Overall vision is very strong and have developed and/or acquired the right foundation to make the vision a reality.

    Cons

    There are too many people involved in every aspect of getting anything done. Instead of hiring one component employee, they tend to hire 5 mediocre employees to do the same job. This makes it very frustrating to get anything done in a timely manner. Travel policies are the worst of any organization I have even worked. The internal "grind" to deal with policies and procedures is putting many good employees over the edge.

    Advice to Management

    Sr. level management may have solid business skills, but have no leadership skills. Consider some changes. There is very little value shown to current employees (avg salary 20% less then market). While everyone can be replaced, there is a lot of talent that has walked out which will take years to replace their depth of knowledge. The current culture of this organization will not draw top talent.
