Disapproves of CEO

Pros

It has given me a chance to improve my tenacity in a mutable corporate environment. The hours tend to be flexible Free donuts and pizza. No dress code. Private cubicles. Nice buiding. Pool table. Nice Ops Staff downstairs. Great original product theory. Solid original contract offering. The founders are geniuses. And fantastic, dynamic men. Sorely missed.

Cons

Extremely high turnover.

PES fires instead of coaching properly.

Four two-hour sales meetings every week.

Biased treatment.

Keep ex-employees listed in database.

Keep ex-employees voicemails active.

No private/password protected client lists for sales staff. This allows dishonest sales people to steal prospects from other sales people..

Extremely long sales process.

Confusing, ever-changing contract terms for clients.

Unclear and always shifting rules for sales staff.

Advice to Management

Completely retool HR constructs.
Train for retention.
FIGURE OUT THE COMP PACKAGE.
Drug Test.
Issue WRITTEN performance reviews and plans for improvement.
Allow employees access to their employee files.
Have uniform procedures in place.
Discourage drama and gossip.
Design a lead base with passwords for each salesman.
Qualify all leads.
Allow employees more ownership over their leads.
Give employees more leads.
Hire trustworthy employees. And then TRUST them.
Instill fairness.
End preferential behavior by management.
Maintain zero iolerance for theft, alcohol and drugs in the workplace,
Management needs to invoke honesty and ethics in all actions.
Stop feeding the bears. We are not THAT hungry.
Encourage open dialogue.
Build teamwork.
Build staff morale.
Stand firm on contract issues for clients.
Hire a paralegal. The Sales Manager should not be deciding legal claims.
Stop basing fact on hearsay.
Install a timeclock to improve productivity..
Bring the founders back.

    I have been working at PE Systems (WA) full-time

    Pros

    Excellent career growth opportunity with a company in growth mode
    Superb business model and service offering
    Friendly, supportive, smart colleagues
    Very proactive, "get things done" atmosphere
    Relaxed dress code in the office
    Good work/life balance
    Hard work and goal achievement is rewarded

    Cons

    Not so many well established or long-term policies, since it is a changing, growing company, so if you need a highly structured environment, may not be the best fit. You have to be a self-starter and able to work through some amount of ambiguity to still achieve goals.
