    Company vehicle and gas with small employee payment per check. Good work life balance. Local travel Great solutions for customers.

    Cons

    Health coverage is average for large corporation. Too many directives. Priorities change too often. Commission structure is too convoluted. Quarterly goal increases too high to make a good living. No pay raise in 2 years Pricing is too high to compete with locals No company apparel provided.

    your not going make good money here!

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Expect your sales plan to increase every 90 days regardless of where you are to plan. Sales plans are initially set very aggressively high to reduce the commission payouts Inventory levels are low and back orders and cancelled orders are high on common items. msc is big on wage suppression! Building your wealth is not in the cards here.. (sure you can buy stock through the employee stock purchase plan, but if you dont have enough $$ to put food on the table, how can you buy stock?) mirco management is the norm. beware the msc bureaucracy!

    Cons

    I am disappointed in myself for accepting the offer. I am actively in process of interviewing for a different opportunity. NO long term future with this company. (unless you want to work for peanuts!)

    Pros

    Company Vehicle, Lots of support from Salesman, Branch Manager and inside support, Company wanted employees to succeed.

    Cons

    As a vendor to a large defense contractor, the supervision from said company could be tough to deal with at times. Some supervisors from this General Dynamics company thought they could treat vendors the same as their employees.

    Great Company, Limited Growth

    Jun 1, 2021 - Inside Sales Representative in Baltimore, MD

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    The CEO and higher ups are among the best for such a large company. Branches have autonomy. Company restructured during COVID but kept many jobs. Top notch customer service, solutions focused. Not as reliant on commission. Good company values.

    Cons

    Recent restructuring resulted in loss of some regional branches. Inside sales could be compensated better based on lots of responsibilities. Not much room for upward growth outside of the Outside sales. Very few young employees (under 30 years old).
