    I have been working at bisco industries full-time

    Pros

    I started at Bisco as an entry level employee and have had several promotions in the last 5 years that I have been here. They provide opportunities for those that work hard to get them.

    Cons

    Support departments (purchasing, accounting, warehouse) often make a salesperson's job harder than it should be which often results in good sales people leaving.

    Advice to Management

    Hold support departments more accountable, stop putting every responsibility on sales. Consider allowing people who hit their goals to work from home, or have more of a flexible schedule.

    I worked at bisco industries full-time

    Pros

    Product Knowledge
    Week of training in Corporate Facility

    Cons

    I have watched Bisco disintegrate for over 3 years. There is a lot of nepotism, favoritism, micromanaging and false promises. They do not protect business that one employee has had for over 10 years and allow their business to be sandbagged BY SOMEONE IN THE SAME COMPANY. There is so much turn over it is awful.

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

    Pros

    Great location - nice office

    Cons

    Wow ! almost everything from the crimmy operating system to the Awful management... The office here in Houston has turned over employees 2 times in less then 3 years that should tell you something. Lets not forget also that I experienced age discrimination. Run don't walk away from this place.

    Advice to Management

    start paying attention to the managers you are hiring because apparently they are not working out. Corporate managers need to visit the sales offices.
