Pros

Great pay, good sales people (if they could still sell). I have never seen a company so against sales people.

Cons

Poeple are treated like a cog in a machine and there is no chance of advancement. Upper Management is cluless

Advice to Management

To risk your company on a half baked idea (Sales Factory) is foolish. The company is loosing market share fast.

    Pros

    The Raleigh office is mostly safe from the constant eye of Sauron that is looking to find fault in the employees.
    The salary's seem to have improved and if you are good at sales you can make some decent money
    Most of the sales staff are great people and coworkers.

    Cons

    The third generation family owned business model has serious flaws in that the current generation has no higher education/experience in any sector of the real world.
    The management has no respect for the sales staff and the work they do(they have stated this directly to the employees before).
    The sales tactics/systems are changed on a whim depending on how upper management feels that month(half the sales staff does not technically sell anymore)
    This company will fire you without ANY prior warning. They will not sit down with you and discuss your performance or attitude if they are displeased with it for any reason(They fired multiple TOP sales reps for simply disagreeing with certain sales tactics implemented at the time)
    The turnover rate at this company is staggering. For 95% of the employees this is a 1-3 year job which will give you some sales experience, but no long term options. Trust me, the amount of resume's sent out that read Carbis as CURRENT employer is a staggeringly large number.

    Advice to Management

    Stop changing your mind on sales tactics every 5 months and let your sales people sell.

    Pros

    Pretty Nice offices
    Many Friendly Co-workers
    Great opportunity for advancemens, as long as you act like you are freinds with upper management.

    Cons

    No one ever seems to know what is really going on. One day things "MUST" be done one way and then he next day or sometimes even sooner than that we are asked:"Why are you doing it that way?" Management...Make up your mind!

    Also, it doesn't matter how well you do your job, because at the end of the day it is all about who you are friends with. My advice: become "best freinds" with upper management and you are good as gold.

    Advice to Management

    Stop ignoring your employees. Just because we aren't in your circle of "Best Friends" doesn't make us bad employees. It is great to have friends, but business should be professional.
