    Negative Outlook

    Pros

    Lots of freedom in how you get new business as long as you are bring in sales. Good people to work with.

    Cons

    Little known name in Canada. To much of a Quebec focus. If they want to grow in e rest of Canada they need to embrace more than their own Quebec Fuchs.

    Advice to Management

    Find a way to get the name out there. Even radio adds would act least help people become familiar with the name.

    I worked at Lyreco Canada full-time

    Pros

    Friendly people, benefits, lots of product training

    Cons

    Management constantly changes the territories and commission structure.
    If you do well they will increase your profit margin for the following year making it harder to sell. Therefore, it feels like you are getting punished for succeeding. If you don't hit your targets, you will be let go.

    Advice to Management

    Territories are too small.

    I worked at Lyreco Canada full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I loved the 3 weeks holidays and not having to go in the office all the time. I also love the training which is continuous!

    Cons

    Very poor management. No longevity and high turnover. The methodology changes yearly. Also, certain managers like to fire customers and give them ultimatums while charging premium prices. Not exactly a way to keep customers. No loyalty!

    Advice to Management

    It's easier to keep a customer than to keep giving them ultimatums. Stop treating them like crap and give them a real reason to pay more. Customer service is the key, not being pushy and constantly changing prices.
