"Great Company gone sideways"

StarStarStarStarStar
  • Work/Life Balance

  • Comp & Benefits
  • Senior Management
Current Employee - Sales Engineer
Current Employee - Sales Engineer
Disapproves of CEO

Pros

Very knowledgeable and capable front line (field staff)
Good Comraderie
Okay Compensation and Benefits
Some Autonomy (although waning as I write this)

Cons

Silo mentality between different parts of the company (sales vs operations vs engineering, etc)
Upper management seems much more concerned with the next 6-12 months (potential sale of the company) than the long term strength of the company
Virtually no upward growth or opportunity without spending 2-3 years in Ohio home office cooling heals.

Advice to Management

Start thiking more long term for the health of the company (5+ years) and start making acquisitions that work well with our current portfolio. Provide better opportunities or compensation packages (weighted toward commission) for field people.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Great people to work with who have a lot of enthusiasm for what they do. There's a real sense of camaraderie with the day-to-day team. The benefits are decent as well.

    Cons

    Differing agendas and ideologies from upper management and HQ that are not in line with industry or market needs. Too many decisions are made without proper analysis as to the industry need or effect.

    Advice to Management

    Get back to the roots of the company and sell of the rest of the baggage that brings us down. Let's face it...if you're not good at something, why do it? If you know for a fact that you can't compete with a niche product in your industry get rid of it and focus on what you CAN do.

    Pros

    Great work atmosphere, very professional yet laid back. Great people, everyone seems to really enjoy their job. Benefits are great.

    Cons

    The work hours are long and compensation for work may not be as high as other companies. The work environment does not allow for much physical activity.
