    Approves of CEO

    I worked at Usherwood Office Technology full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    You are left alone to sell. No micro management so if you are someone that does well with little to no management than this is a great fit. Worked for me.

    Cons

    The is no account management so you only sell to new accounts.

    Advice to Management

    As long as you know what your in for this model works.

    I worked at Usherwood Office Technology full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Everyone’s nice (from what it seemed). Rapidly (too rapidly) growing. Technology. Nice offices. Owner is hands on for certain transactions.

    Cons

    If you’re in a net new territory, you better make senses ASAP or else they’ll let you go quick. No clear vision of ramp up time. No clear structure of management. No business plans. It’s pretty chaotic. Most expensive provider in the area. If you’re in a competitive market like the Northeast, run. You’ll have a hell of a time winning new business solely based on the fact you’re “family owned” and “The nest solutions provider...

    Advice to Management

    Hire managers who are true mentors, not veteran sales reps.

    I worked at Usherwood Office Technology full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The owner was available and there are some very nice people that are great at their jobs working here.

    Cons

    This company has gotten much bigger in the last few years and with growth comes corporate mentality.

    Advice to Management

    I really don't have any. They are doing what they can do with the size of the company and the direction that they want to go with it.

    Exciting pursuit of technology sales of equipment and networking solutions. Management is nimble and capable of making quick changes and course corrections.

    Poor communication throughout the management team to other managers and to sales and service teams at various branch offices. Changing and competing priorities resulting in sales and service frustration accompanied by lack of consistent direction.

    Advice to Management

    Improve leadership and communication.

    I worked at Usherwood Office Technology for more than a year

    Pros

    401K match. Family owned. It was a good company to work for when I first started there. Company events were a blast.

    Cons

    Starting to cut corners. Too many untrained bosses. The customer is now taking a hit on quality.

    I worked at Usherwood Office Technology full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    This is a large company and the people that work here are typically the top of their fields.

    Cons

    This can be a stressful place to work. The company motto is be prepared to go with the flow...very few things are consistant but, that is the nature of the business itself.

    Advice to Management

    I think that management has a pretty good handle on what they are doing and what needs to be done.
