    Pros

    It's a great company if you are meeting their goals and do what they ask of you.

    Cons

    If you don't make your goals they will hound you from the top management on down. Right now there is way too much management and not a lot of leadership.

    Advice to Management

    They need to simplify what is needed from their sales staff. We need to get back to selling and stop doing the conference calls, reports, and needless surveys.

    Pros

    The pay and benefits is comparable to similar companies. They are a good corporate citizen. They offer some decent partner/vendor purchasing opportunities to employees.

    Cons

    The annual performance review process takes so long that you don't actually get an annual increase, even if you do qualify.

    Morale is low because turn-over is very high. During my short time there many people were let go.

    There are some very large egos in senior management and not a lot of listening. Where there are personal conflicts the person who contributes most to the bottom line wins. Individuals are not valued. Expect to be undermined.

    Training and development is not a priority for non-technical staff. Staff are expected to constantly do more with less. Head office knows best even if you are the one sitting in front of the customer.

    Clients are more valuable than the employees that serve them. It is not uncommon for staff to leave Stanley to work for their customers.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees. Really listen to them and give some respect to what they have to contribute. Yes, your customers are valuable but so are the employees.
