I worked at OTIS full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

They have a solid training program and don't throw sales reps out into the field before they are ready. They have great tools to help you organize your sales calls and great back office support to help you get your proposals out on the street.

Cons

Hit your numbers and/or get in good with the branch manager or you're out on the streets. Salary for sales reps is among the lowest in the industry and the commission structure puts you at war with your superintendant on major projects. The superintendant is usually around a lot longer than you are, so good luck winning those fights.

    Pros

    Great people on the local level; highly skilled and dedicated. The folks in Bloomington care about the Company and want it to succeed - or did, until they were shut out over and over and over again.

    Cons

    The biggest, messiest, most ridiculous restructuring anyone could ever imagine. Everyone is running toward the finish line for dear life, but they can't SEE a finish line - it keeps moving. There are no maps. There are no answers. Just RUN for dear life, RUN, all of you! Short-sighted decisions being made that will have a long-range impact on the Company, with shockingly little value placed on the skill or input of long-time, devoted, employees.

    Advice to Management

    It's too late. You wouldn't listen before - don't ask now. Just grab a mop and clean up as best you can. Good luck with that.
