    Good technology. Great products. They are known for their quality in the marketplace.

    Keywords: Micromanagement, Bureaucracy, distributers and sub-distributers taking your business, no loyalty to sales.

    Advice to Management

    Change from the top down. A reflection of who sits at the top.

    I worked at Kaeser Kompressoren

    Pros

    Company makes a great product. In fact you could say it is the best in the industry. They spend a lot of money on marketing and engineering. Giving their products and services lots of exposure.

    Cons

    For a company that has one of the best but most expensive products in their industry they do not understand that they make a product that needs to be sold by professional salesman. The company culture is that salesman are replaceable. Upper management is top heavy and after sales support is non existent. Despite California labor laws that say otherwise. They will not pay you on any commissions for sales that you... made once you leave the company. Despite selling the most expensive products in the industry the pay/commissions and benefits are the lowest in the industry. This job is not bad to learn the industry and make some connections and use that to find a better job within the industry with a competitor. For a privately held company there is a LOT of red tape. Kaeser is held hostage to it;s own ISO standards. The tail is clearly wagging the dog here and makes simple day to day business activities a nightmare.

    Advice to Management

    Embrace your sales force and make a clear cut organization chart. Revise ISO policy to free up branch level personal to make smart timely business decisions.
