Suggestions for improvement

  • Have some more realistic asks of your employees. And understand that when they answer your phone, and knock on doors for you, they need you to back them up.

What I like about the company

I like that the company at least tries. Their customers certainly don't think they care. And you can see at the ground level that everyone from sales supervisors to the president and vp have their hearts and souls in it.
