No opinion of CEO

Pros

Great pay, friend, and opportunities for advancement
Flexible vacation schedule
"West coast" business process
Large amounts of autonomy for some positions

Cons

Some of the Pros can also translate into Cons, especially with regard to the "west coast" style of doing business. Things are very loosey goosey, which can often allow under performers float along at great detrement to the business

Advice to Management

Drag the net for trash, and you retain some greater number of your most talented.

Also, promote the best... don't let them wallow in low level positions while watching less talented people to move up past them

    Pros

    The management team lets you sell to your account base your way. As long as you can prove that you are doing your job and doing it well, you are left to do so. If you start falling behind, leadership will work with you to move sales to the next level.

    Cons

    There are a lot of levels of people with different responsibilities making it difficult to get answers to customers in a timely manner. It is difficult to push items out of the warehouse when they don't keep stock of product your customers need. The inventory system is very old school and could really use an update.

    Advice to Management

    Allow for forecasts. Stock items that valued customers need so that we can cut lead times to those customers. Don't promote people based on tenure! Promote based on performance!
