    The management, this company still operates in the 1950s when it comes to dealing with employees, you are just a number to them,

    Treat your employees better and up the base salary, then you wouldn’t lose most new hires after a year

    Pros

    Team environment, Wonderful people within the organization excluding ,management particularly director.

    Cons

    Management staff is always looking for the quick fix instead of determining where the problem exists and change for the good of the overall company. Management staff is very inexperienced in the world of analytics -and also contact centers. The director is constantly making changes on a whim instead of having his folks lead him to a better decision.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to who you hire, instead of basing it on your feelings. Let the data speak!

    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Konica Minolta Business Solutions full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    KMBS Staff before Danka took over

    Cons

    Salaries plummeted in 2010-12 when Danka took over KMBS. Compensation went down by 25% so new Danka management could get the revenue in their salaries and bonuses. LOVED KMBS management and have no idea how a loser/debunked Danka took over the reigns in 2010.

    Advice to Management

    No sense in giving advice to Danka former management who think they are above reproach or advice. KMBS was an AMAZING company to work for. **Don't spit on your 2nd leading sales rep when You are screaming at him" June of 2010
