    I have been working at Flood Brothers full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    This COULD be a good company to work for- there are some good people working there, and a sense of teamwork is just itching to spring forth, and would if upper management would really support it.

    Potential to be a growing company, and is willing to branch out into related fields.

    Willing to use digital means to track sales and contacts, and scheduling.

    Cons

    I observed several people get hired, and then thrown into the fray with inadequate training, direction and supervision. Middle management, which lacks real management experience, is apparently encouraged to gain that experience by trying things out on new employees- if it works (rare,) great; if not, so what, who cares? Plenty more where they came from. Middle management has little or no idea HOW to manage, and is not given effective, proven means to learn.

    Some business development (a euphemism for sales, at least with this company, and almost everybody has that title) people are too often allowed to play little games and protect their turf, which hurts morale and productivity, while at the same time everyone is encouraged to work together on projects. Trouble is, it can be difficult to find somebody willing to work with, even though commissions are split 50/50 from the first day a second person is brought in on a project.

    CRM software was chosen on head-scratchingly bad criteria- best guess it it was cheap, and thus penny wise but pound foolish. Use of CRM is stated as manditory, but not enforced, which encourages a lack of teamwork.

    Advice to Management

    UPPER MANAGEMENT/OWNERS: Stop allowing or encouraging sales managers to experiment with people, or at least allow the new hires the same luxury of failure as the green sales managers are. Promote to management more on ability and willingness to manage and train, less on sales success. Ban the phrase "I'm too busy," compel more experienced sales people to be more cooperative.
