No opinion of CEO

Pros

Good, competitive products/services. Good company vision. Pretty good benefits and co 'perks'. Co car, corp card, matching 401k, flex spending, reward cards, awards

Cons

Sales Mgmt (at all levels) irrational and unsupportive. Most 'lead' through threats, negative reinforcement and ridiculous micromanagement. Highly inflexible to change and poor communication skills. Set unachievable goals and expectations. (VERY small % achieve them)

Advice to Management

Hire some unbiased, experienced, well trained outsiders who can actually 'help' grow sales, improve morale, communication and internal procedures. Focus more on experience and proven success as opposed to always promoting from within ~ those who fit the 'existing club' mentality. Mgmt w/ positive, rational temperments and open communiation style ~ should have a trickle down effect. It all starts at the top!

    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    Company as a whole is moving in the right direction with very strong senior leadership.

    Cons

    Micro-managed. Reviews weekly-monthly. Pressure cooker environment where the customers are sensing aggression not value or partnership.
    The sales teams are being treated as no-talent children and pushed in the wrong direction,ultimately leading them to the door. The lack of experience and common sense approach will leave the managers spending most of their time filling positions with rookies like their competition.

    Advice to Management

    Revert back to the days where you were judged by your year end results not daily, weekly and monthly! Too much time is being diverted on "to do" lists by managers so they have something "to do" resulting in poor performance across the board.
