    Pros

    When they say "Nothing compares to family" they mean it. The Greenbergs run the company like it's a big family. They are very mature people and run their ship on feelings. Your success or failure here depends entirely on you.

    Cons

    Lots of "reports" which is their greatest upside too - they like sales people who really connect, understand and manage their businesses.

    Advice to Management

    The way they manage salesman samples and selling availability is very wasteful and inefficient. In fact the 300+ samples they sent me made my road sales job nearly unmanageable. I'd like to go back to work for them for a while, to help them set up that Google Picasa photo catalog system that I was using for the rest of the sales team.


  2. "work for a fair and strong company"
