    I worked at Signet Armorlite

    Pros

    SA is wonderful and those who are internal in CA work incredibly hard with a small/mighty staff. A solid universally known brand, Kodak, and its products. Marketing support.

    Cons

    Corporate management by the parent company is lacking/uncaring, the focus is more on their primary brands rather than the most recognizable one. Restrictions on sales staff where product can go to earn a paycheck. Late product/technology updates and super soft product launches.

    Advice to Management

    Hire experienced/caring managers who actually want to make a difference, not ones from the "management pool" who really didn't ever do the job they're "managing". Hard to get/make sales numbers for the territory as reps can't route business to any lab in the US like other well know brands can. Put your heart into this company, employees can tell when you're just making it through the day rather than making the most... of the day.

    I have been working at Signet Armorlite

    Pros

    Overall friendly people, most of the products are good, the Kodak brand is well recognized and has a lot of potential.

    Cons

    Senior management is uneducated and inept. Old school philosophies. No employee performance review process, no training programs, no defined values or vision, low pay compared to similar jobs, very little opportunity for personal or professional growth, very few sales reps last more than a year .The company is not respected within the industry.
