    Pros

    People are the best part of the company. People are supportive and care about what they do. My manager seems to care about my success and happiness at the company. Good car reimbursement program.

    Cons

    You must wait 3 months for health insurance. If I’m fully investing in the company, why aren’t they fully investing in me? Only 2 weeks of vacation to start, regardless of your position Management works all hours including weekends and they expect the same from you. Do not believe them if they say they care about “work life balance” Shared rooms with coworkers for company events, who even does this? Every... salesman is overloaded and underpaid. They purposely make monthly commission unobtainable. Some of my coworkers have had to get second jobs to support their families. Complete mess internally - high level directors suddenly fired or let go, poor customer service and ordering process, outdated systems. Concerns or solutions to the internal problems are not taken seriously and/or not heard by management. No management of accounts - duplicates and incorrect account assignments make it impossible to see which sales you get credit for and which you don’t. Inside sales versus outside sales competition for established accounts. Salesmen are given an enormous amount of administrative and customer service work which takes away 30-50% of each salesmen’s time.

    Advice to Management

    Do the right thing and make reasonable goals for your employees and stop cheating good, hardworking people out of making a decent living and providing for their families. Stop buying up good companies and spitting them out. Take time to fix your systems before you lose everything you thought you gained with another acquisition.
