    I worked at Parkson Corporation full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good product line and competitive for a mid-sized company in the water/wastewater treatment industry. Good customer service and experienced field service personnel and great Reps. Good compensation.

    Cons

    Very low employee retention - about 1 to 2yrs on an average for new hires between 2009 and 2012. Several older employers also were laid-off in the recent 5 yrs, which keeps everyone else on the edge not knowing what the next move by the Management be. If any, there are very few active patents for the products and technology owned by the Company. Research & Development (R&D) is key to sustainable growth and new process/equipment development at such a company. However, R&D is headed by personnel with undergraduate degrees but several years of experience in doing what they do. And so are most of the Managers of engineering teams. Industrial sales are only a small percentage of the overall and the Company has not seen any significant profitable growth in this sector and new ventures pursued in recent years.

    Advice to Management

    Patents, new technology and significant upgrades to existing product line would be key to sustainable growth for this Company. And personnel driving these initiatives should be experienced but also academically qualified. A dedicated and qualified research team (with PhDs), adding budget to your R&D work, partnering with local Universities for research can all help improve your products and innovate to gain a strong foothold in this industry.


  2. "Very friendly environment, nice coworkers and professionals"
