    Pros

    Good Benefits, decent atmosphere, and some loyal managers.

    Cons

    Company is very old and is constantly trying to make "changes" to save money. Not a huge amount of room to grow quickly in the company. Met people who have been in the same position for 10+years.

    Advice to Management

    Start promoting from within. Stop hiring outside sales reps who have no idea about any of our products and services.

    Pros

    Corporate: certain individuals were good @ their jobs and willing to help to get the job done; management challenges you to find the most efficient and cost-effective solutions.

    Business Unit: close-knit group; those involved in supporting revenue growth will work closely with you to get the job done and help close the sale; decent PTO accrual.

    Cons

    Corporate: under new leadership, it is their way or the highway; create challenging sales goals designed for the professional to fail (based on territory); finger-pointing to find scapegoats if reports are not in line with their expectations; want you to be a "Yes" man or woman; too much micro-managing.

    Business Unit: foster family-like atmosphere, but under corporate leadership, that is not the atmosphere corporate wants; corporate wants win-at-all-cost, even if it means to "stab-colleague-in-the-back"; no career growth; no chance to telecommute.

    Advice to Management

    N/A, it is their way or the highway.

    Pros

    The company is small enough to remain somewhat flexible and innovative.

    Cons

    The company is very segmented due to how the company was built through numerous acquisitions. This limits the flow of information and makes it hard to see how you would move around the organization to move up.
