    I have been working at Lyreco full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Great induction and sales training Management take the time to get to know you and support your career. Every day is different, the only sales job that doesn’t look at figures and looks more at your own activity.

    Cons

    Sometimes long hours but if you want to push boundaries and earn promotions it’s worth it in the long run.

    I have been working at Lyreco full-time

    Pros

    Training, other reps can be very supportive

    Cons

    Very long hours because of admin work that is required, often duplicating admin that you have already done. Micro managing is out of this world, doesn't matter if you are hitting target or not. Commission pays are unknown until 'prov 2' due to poor IT systems. Lyreco have the vision to go far, however they are always looking to diversify instead of mastering the last product launch. If you can handle micro management and long hours for poor reward then this is for you.

    I have been working at Lyreco full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Very few, private health, company car but you pay towards it, tablet and phome but these are also used to track your movements

    Cons

    Micro managed, treated like kids, hounded almost hourly, constantly changing focus, duplication of reporting (electronic and on paper), long hours start at 7.30 am rarely finish before & pm, unrealistic expectations, feel you are one month away from a disciplinary, very unhappy place to work, very high turn around of staff. Not a nice atmosphere to work in
