    Pros

    There are very few pros - benefits are pretty good but that's only because the parent company RPM supplies them. If it were up to Stoncor Management - there would be NO benefits!

    Cons

    Terrible management. The management team is like something out of the 80s - maybe even sooner. The IT system is absolutely useless - goes back maybe to the 60s. It is such an "old boys" club. Young people especially will never be happy here! All the president cares about is making his bonus...people don't matter. There is always a wage freeze going on but the executive team still makes their bonus!

    Advice to Management

    Get your heads out of the 80s (although that might not be possible) - treat your employees like they are human beings and change things to attract more young talent...management is too old and set in their ways...plus they are all rich!

    I worked at Stoncor Group (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Might make money here if you get lucky or can withstand the lies/time to learn and grow a client base

    Cons

    Sales people get treated as numbers and not people..........was told in my first week of training that I was viewed as a loss to the company and basically had to "earn my keep"......require that you wear company merchandise which they sell to you from their web store at a huge profit for them and the cell phone I was told would be provided, I later found out was I being charged $900/year for.....lots of smoke and mirrors here

    Advice to Management

    Have sales people (not engineers) teaching the fundamentals/training the mobile sales force

    Pros

    The benefits are good. the car allowance is good.

    Cons

    The management you will never get along with. The nepotism you will get use to but dislike.
    Manament will put you under a microscope and discect you every move and time spent including after hours as you are expected to work 60 -70 hrs a week for base with hopes of a real bonus, but will soon realize that that its unachievable because territory's are way to small. when you hear the stories of big commissions that was when reps had all of Ontario or a territory like the hole GTA, now its more like you have Mississauga and that's it. also the territory's have been worked over by at least 20-30 reps before you and a lot of them were people that were real scam artists that have left bad taste in your mouth.

    Advice to Management

    You have lost a lot of real talent in the past. The future is unclear, hopefully the dinosaur has retired, the micromanagement will never retain any good employees. Borden the territory's enable your people to work and earn a good pay they will reward you and themselves. but under the current Hitler regime it wont work. Just look at the monthly firings and number of employees quitting....This is a place to earn a base and keep looking for a real carrer.

    I have been working at Stoncor Group full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Your co-workers and support staff are great people, they are survivors who are stuck in sour office setting. If you can survive, you will gain product and technical knowledge that is transferable to many other industries.

    Cons

    I have never seen a company with such a high attrition rate. Canadian President is a nasty old man who is always looking to take from his employees but will never give anything in return. I have seen management make abusive comments to their employees. If you interview with this company you will hear lots of long tales about making crazy money with unlimited commissions. Job Seeker beware. Your commissions are restricted to bare minimum the president feels is required to keep you in the job. Just try and work for a competitor in the same industry and you will receive a legal letter reminding you of the non compete contract that you were required to sign at the time of your hire. Like I said Job Seeker beware!

    Advice to Management

    The president needs to move on and let the next generation drive the company.
    Salary for existing staff needs to be brought up to market rates.
    Savings plan is a joke and needs to be improved so that employees can benefit from the offer.

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

    Pros

    The benefit plan is very good and there are a few (very few) decent people in the organization that are human.

    Cons

    There isn't enough room here to describe the negatives. The level of mistrust and paranoia "management" and I use the term loosely, is profound. There is no room for a personal life. Expect 60 hours or more a week without compensation. The commission plan is essentially a scam and unobtainable. Nepotism is alive and well. The computer system is outdated, by about 15 years, and useless. There is no room for promotion unless you are related to the management. The turnover rate is mind boggling. Recruiting and training just to maintain status qua is a full-time job. Stay away. It looks great on the outside but it is candy coated poison.

    Advice to Management

    If I thought that they would read this, I'd write a book, but suggestions are seen as criticism. Modernization of thinking is the main issue. It is no longer 1940 and until this is recognized there is little that can help.

    I worked at Stoncor Group full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Average wage, average health Benefits, Good Car Allowance

    Cons

    You will be belittled, Micro Managed, Pushed to work 60-70 hrs a week on salary only. There are dreams and promises of trips and big bonus, but reality is it will never happen. The territorys are too small and there is to much crossover. If you do it it big they will reduce your territory, as well the bouns kick ins go up 30% per year. So after 3-4 years working here your will have to sell double. The managers are watch everything on a mico level with there monthly predictions and if you miss your prediction then you will be driving around with a manager watching your every step for the next week. I did this job for over 5 plus years. every shooting star quits or fired after a short time. The company is a revolving door. 3-4 quiting and 3-4 Firings a month. No respect for people. This comes from the top. where the president will scream and demorilize you in front of everyone to create fear and stroke his enormous ego. I would love to be there for this mans judgment day.

    Advice to Management

    President is a Dinosor. he loves his position of power, no respect for people.middle managers are puppets.
    My manager never stood up for me even though I put him on the corporate trip many times, and made himself a good wage of my 70 hrs a week. It causes so much disconsent that employees don't work as a team. they are all individuals that steel and take from one another..
