    I have been working at RepWorx full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Sales Reps are able to run/ manage territory without being micro managed. Inside and outside teams work well together. There is a definite cohesive "team" environment.

    RepWorx represents excellent non foods product lines. Portfolio provides sales reps with numerous products to grow their respective territories. Employees are encouraged to reach out to their regionals and interact with the various levels of personnel at their distributors.

    In the last two years, RepWorx has added 2 new territories in IL and WI, added 2 new product lines, and grown the outside team by 3 new sales reps.
    Owners are very accessible to employees: easy to approach with questions/ concerns, available for feedback, and willing to assist with customer issues when necessary.

    Hard work is recognized and professional growth is encouraged. Owners want team to reach full performance potential and achieve sales goals by utilizing individual talents, creating sales plans, and executing the plans.

    Cons

    While I don't consider this a "con", it is something to be aware of: There is constant growth and change. If you are not a flexible individual who can be forward thinking, this may not be the environment for you.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to grow company based on original company culture. RepWorx has an excellent company culture and core values. As the company grows, continue to value employees by continuing to encourage everyone to have a voice and nurture their core talents.

    I worked at RepWorx full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Has a stated core set of values; admirable for a small company. Offers healthcare and 401K benefit packages. Some talented inside support personnel and a few good outside sales people.

    Cons

    Nepotism. As an example, the Executive Committee is made up of family and friends solely. New employees are not allowed a voice and are often badgered verbally on a weekly basis by one of the owners. Aura of open and honest communication is marred by frequent put downs and new ideas are often dismissed without merit. Successful business culture should be an evolving set of collective beliefs, attitudes and values. Employees should be welcomed for identifying with the company's core set of values and embraced for the diversity and different personalities that they bring to the workplace to enhance your culture and move it forward. The current culture is entrepreneurial, at best and "stepford wives" like....a gentle reminder that people are not robots.

    Advice to Management

    Wake up and look in the mirror. Your process is not working. Please stop treating your new employee's short employment status as some sort of experiment to "learn from". Hire a sales manager, that is not family or friend, and give them a chance to add some professionalism and class to your organization.

    I have been working at RepWorx full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I have re-entered the work force after taking time off from my career path to raise my kids. I was very fortunate to join the team at RepWorx. The partners, as well as my co-workers, have been very supportive and flexible. The company culture is very warm and welcoming. Everyone seems to care very much about the customer’s needs and on improving operations both inside and outside the company. There are weekly meetings for the inside operations staff to keep us all on the same page and to handle any issues that may come up. Everyone’s opinion is valued and encouraged. The company has added two geographical territories and more manufacturer’s lines since I signed on for employment, so I feel that there is tremendous potential for business growth. I have also been given additional opportunities for personal job growth based on my experience and interests.

    Cons

    I have been here for almost one year and have not had any negative experiences working here.

    Advice to Management

    I would encourage the partners on their path of continued growth and their commitment to finding the right people for the right roles within the company.

    I worked at RepWorx full-time

    Pros

    Several outside sales team members are talented and a pleasure to work with.

    Cons

    - Extremely high turn over (every six months) for business with less than 15 employees, zero opportunity for advancement
    - Owners are never on the same page, which causes problems amongst staff regularly
    - "Open & Honest" environment promoted by owners and staff, but then it is used against employees to pickup slack for incompetent owner, sales & inside staff members or uses it to diminish workload & fire people
    - Owner conduct inappropriate relationships with employees
    - Owner allows family members incompetence and manipulative ways to create chaos inside the office and a horrible work environment, creating extreme double standards and unreliable expectations on others to pick up the slack
    - Owners do not manage their business professionally, ask illegal questions in interviews and allow sexual & behavioral misconduct from employees
    - Promises are never kept and major business decisions are allowed to be made by an all male leadership team that are barely capable of doing their own job or are afraid to go against owners
    - Owners sees a business consultant, but lack the ability to make decisions and stick to them, policies change every 3-6 months
    - If under the age of forty or a women owners treat with no respect
    - Slim chance of finding ANY past employee from this company that has any respect for the owners or a positive attitude towards the company

    Advice to Management

    Evaluate the consistent pattern of talent that turn over voluntarily or that you fire because they are a threat or speak the truth. Owners should remove themselves from managing day-to-day business operations or even pay their own utility bills, as they have been proven incompetent time and time again in that area. Stick to focusing their efforts on sales, or become silent partners with those who have the capabilities to run a respectful and progressive business. It is 2015, not the era of Mad Men. Just because you are male, over the age of 50/60 and were handed a business from a family member doesn't mean you deserve it or have the ability to run it. Reflect on every former employee for the last fifteen years and see what percentage are on good terms with your company, that might bring a bit of reality to the real issue... which will point back to you as the owners.

    I have been working at RepWorx (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great product lines from outstanding companies

    Cons

    JanSan owner has no clue how to sell. Replies too much on over priced consultants. Current sales leaders are riding off strong distributors for their growth numbers. Owners do not respect each other and it shows. JanSan owner needs to get out in the field and work. You are a small family company trying to look big. Learn about sales and marketing and how to run a business. It not all found in a book.

    Advice to Management

    Learn how to work with people and sell. You have lost many great sales people to your micro managing and leadership. You are scared of your distributors and they run you like a puppet. Learn to support your employees and not throw them to the wolves to cover your short comings.

    I worked at RepWorx full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Product Lines manufacturers are strong.

    Cons

    Owners are not working together. One owner talks down to the employees and offers no real sense of professionalism or knowledge of sales. Rely too heavy on consultants and forget about running their business. Jan San owner is very uneducated in sales and customer service.

    Advice to Management

    Run your business as a small family business it is and not try to be a fortune 500 comapny with 10 employees. Get out of the conference room and into the streets selling. Other brokers do a far better job marketing their products.
