They only genuinely cared about each other when they were trying to impress upper management
Support from management
Managers were great but our supply chain had numerous flaws
They definitely promoted that but egos, old school vs. new school mentality, and jealousy sometimes got in the way with co-worker relationships and cohesiveness
Freedom to work independently
We were rarely supervised
If you sell than things go well
Attitude towards older colleagues
It was the young people who had to deal with most of the problems.
The company is so big there was always opportunity to grow
Overall compensation for your work
Our commission structure kept be dramatically reduced
Our schedule would beg to differ
I was proud of the company as a whole but some people thought their ideas and ways were best ways. At least they thought that
Sales is always difficult without the proper training and support
Inclusive / Diverse
They were always open to suggestions
Suggestions for improvement
- Don't rush into new technology before the company who created it originally, has perfected it. Our balance sheets each quarter were extremely inaccurate and inventory was a mess for many years
What I like about the company
The company I worked for was great as long as you did your job and kept your nose clean. A willingness to excell played an important role as well.
What I dislike about the company
Our delivery system from state to state was always different and our main computer system was a prototype so glitches were a daily occurrence. Other than that it was pretty great.
