    I have been working at Michigan Office Solutions for less than a year

    Pros

    Freedom and commissions. Good team to work with. Good pay and solid product and training. Good brand and company recognition.

    Cons

    Upper management is beyond inept. Glass-ceiling in terms of upper management and progressive thinking. Wish there was more feedback from fellow employees to help.

    Pros

    If you want to be in sales this is an OK place to start. Seems like a lot of people love or hate this place but it's really just alright. You get to work regular hours, 8-5 most days and there are a couple company wide meetings per year where they spend a lot of money on their employees. Training is good and ongoing while you're there. You have the benefit of selling a well known brand, Xerox. If you are lucky... enough to get a good sales territory you will make decent money. Benefits are alright.

    Cons

    Far too many meetings, most of them just rah-rah kind of stuff like management trying to convince you how great the company is. Not a ton of support from anyone above lower middle management. You have to drive your own car (they usually don't mention that in the interviews) and the allowance is basically just enough to cover gas. Internal communication is poor. Make sure you get everything you want in writing with... the offer, otherwise you probably wont get it. The worst thing about this job is how poorly divided the sales territories are. You will see sales people who are not very good making huge commissions because they have giant office buildings in their territory. Meanwhile, some good sales people will be making nothing as their territory is nothing but old, half abandoned, industrial buildings. Basically, a lot of your success will depend on the area they give you to sell in. Limited opportunities for advancement, not a place I could see having a long term career.

    Advice to Management

    Fix the sales territories so there is less discrepancy in sales potential. Give potential employees the whole story up front and listen to what they want.
