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

    Pros

    A fun company to work for with innovative technologies

    Cons

    Compensation plan did not make sense. The way it was structured, the more you sold year 1, meant the less you would be paid year 2. This is why I left.

    Advice to Management

    Compensation plan did not make sense. If you had a very successful year. Your following years sales target was greatly increased so you would have a hard time meeting target the following year. So the more you sell year 1, the less you get paid year 2. This porpoise effect is why I left. In addition, if you did not make 80% of your goal you got nothing for your kicker. This is ridiculous. It means you are providing incentive to sandbag at the end of the year because you are worried they will raise your target so much you won’t be able to make 80% the following year.
