    I have been working at Teknion full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    - sales effectiveness team - vertical integration and customization of project is a good story to tell. - for the most part good people that work there - company is growing and out pacing the industry - design oriented company

    Cons

    - bad expenses policy (a)you are responsible for any late fees (b) travel expenses are only reimbursed at like $10 for breakfast and lunch. (So don’t get a lunch if you are traveling for the company) - company for the most part has substandard dealer partners - sales structure is designed so you don’t share information with coworkers as easily, especially if they are in another territory. Unfortunately this is not... a customer first model, more of a political one. - underpaid A&D representatives - commission is paid twice a year. (1/4 in July and 3/4 in January. ) If you don’t get more than your goal than you get nothing. - sales goals can feel arbitrary, don’t expect to be able to give feedback unless you are a RVP or above - PAF’s ( basically means that your product isn’t going to arrive and they told you about 2 days before it is scheduled to install... unfortunately happens all to often)

    Advice to Management

    - Re-examine you expense policy - get rid of Michael Vanderbil’s design in the showrooms ( the design concepts are pure mediocrity, and do not speak to today’s clients or their taste level) - set up more common goals among regions, teams and company. - pay your A&D team the same as other manufacturers
