    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Proud to say that you work for a company that is in the business of recycling electronic.

    Cons

    Company is less than honest about what they actually do, to the detriment of the environment, the employees of Intercon Solutions, and society as a whole.

    Advice to Management

    Be honest about your business practices and be honest with your employees. For the pittance that they work for, that is the least they deserve.

    I have been working at Intercon Solutions full-time

    Pros

    There is nothing positive to working for Intercon

    Cons

    you name it, it happens, control, manipulation, lying, cheating, secrecy,disrespect, stretching the truth. Management will tell you that it is a losing deal no matter what the terms are. And if you offer to stop the deal they will tell you to just leave it alone that they want you to take it as a loss to gain future business. All the while knowing the value and cheating sales rep on commissions. This is a disgusting way to do business but that's the way they do it.

    Advice to Management

    Do the right thing stop taking people for granted. Close shop

    Pros

    Healthy work life balance - Employees are not required to work more than 40 hrs / week in most cases
    Company provides a free lunch to all employees, small gym is available
    Employees are friendly, as is the company owner

    Cons

    Poor compensation, sales reps work on a commission basis, office staff compensation is somewhat low in my opinion.
    Not many new challenges, the sales staff continually work on bringing in new business, however this is not really a position where you can "grow"
    Hires an excessive amount of interns, many of which are given menial tasks of little responsibility

    Advice to Management

    Sales needs to be reconfigured as a position with growth potential, since the reps are the core of the company. I would offer continuing education classes within the company, and change the compensation structure for sales reps to a base + commission which will allow you to attract better talent. Experienced reps cost money, but they bring in quality business.


  5. "Good people"

    Pros

    People are really nice there. They provide food for lunch and variety of snacks and drinks.
    They also have a gym.

    Cons

    I am not the person who likes making cold calls. It's hard to get commissions. I guess they have competitive marketing team.

    Advice to Management

    Maybe providing some base salary makes the job more attractive.
    But I guess the CEO tries to be nice to everyone.
