    I have been working at Hardware Resources full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I've worked at Hardware Resources for a number of years now and have been impressed. The level of professionalism with our upper management is highly regarded. There is a great team environment and momentum for a lot of potential.

    I've seen significant growth of the company during the years I've been here. With continued growth comes the necessary changes to support that growth. The company is always looking for ways to enhance our systems and processes to streamline work efficiency and provide a better work environment.

    The management value their employees and it shows with the salaries, bonuses, benefits and overall interest in their career and potential for growth. They value education and foster many training opportunities.

    Cons

    Because of the growth, there is continually improvements of our systems, processes, office locations, parking accommodations and other areas. It can get distracting at times but overall it's the momentum that drives that change so it's a small downside of positive growth.

    Advice to Management

    Communication is key. Find unique ways to strengthen the teams and streamline the disconnect between multiple facilities.

    Pros

    I like that the company promotes from within. I've been promoted and folks around me have been promoted. It's good to see work recognized and promoted. I also feel my job is safer working for a growing and profitable company.

    Cons

    Growth has its own special challenges. I wouldn't trade it but it does keep things interesting!

    Advice to Management

    Continue to look to our own people as the best candidates fro promotion

    Pros

    Growing every year, seem to be outpacing the competition. They try to promote from within - they post job opportunities internally first. Good bonuses.

    Cons

    They hire so many new people we sometimes run out of parking spots, but it's ok now.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up, keep growing!

    Pros

    A company winning in its industry
    Lots of opportunity for responsibility
    Challenging projects to tackle -- makes for good work experience.
    Management keeps employees up to date on what's going on

    Cons

    If you don't like to be challenged with a lot to do, it might not be for you. That means that sometimes there can be too many projects going on.

    Advice to Management

    Please communicate as much as possible. People want to hear a lot about the company.
    Make sure everyone knows what the priorities are.

    Pros

    Decent insurance......... That's pretty much it

    Cons

    Management nor HR care about their employees, they want to pay you pennies and expect you to work 50+ hrs a week.... Do they sick or disabled because they will treat you the same then fire you

    Advice to Management

    Horrible

    I worked at Hardware Resources full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Steady paycheck - good benefits: Health, Dental Vision, PTO, Vacation, Holidays. If you are a sales person and like Account sales, you will like the work. I enjoyed connecting with customers. I would have preferred another territory but it was ok. $38K base - very small commissions

    Cons

    I wonder if they ever hired any men for the inside sales? From what I understand there has been lots of turnover since I was there and a new inside sales manager. Some of those girls are very toxic to be around. It can be awkward if you don't fit in with the click. 8th grade sort of drama at times. The manager at the time was not a very skilled manager. Also, depending on who you have on your outside sales team will definitely determine whether your experience will be a good one! The outside sales folks seem to think that inside sales is for their administrative support more than a sales partnership. That was my experience. Didn't like the environment and took another position after 2 years
