- Southwest Sales, L.P.07.Dec 2015
Feedback from management tended to be highly critical without recognition for jobs done well.
Support from management
Leaders want "yes men" in all positions, do not appreciate free thinkers.
Office staff worked well together but inside and outside team were often pitted against each other.
Freedom to work independently
No real control over your area of expertise in the office. Leaders tend to micromanage.
communication was not clear from management to staff.
Women are definitely not treated equally in this work place. Sexist and racist comments are not uncommon even during company meetings. Women returning from maternity leave are expected to pump in the ladies room if they have chosen to breastfeed.
There is very little, if any, room for upward growth in this company.
Overall compensation for your work
The base pay is very competitive but annual reviews and raised were discontinued several years ago in lieu of quarterly bonuses based on several conditions that are highly subjective.
Office / Work Environment
Computer equipment and surveillance cameras that monitor the inside sales staff in the office are very current models.
Management will not hesitate to contact an employee while they are in vacation or home sick even when other employees can help resolve the issue at hand.
Inclusive / Diverse
Diverse opinions are not supported and often result in accusations of negativity.
Suggestions for improvement
- New management is needed to bring this company into the 21st century.
What I like about the company
My inside sales teammates all worked together to achieve our goals.
What I dislike about the company
Leadership was not clear with their communication, there was little to no room for advancement in the company, annual raises were discontinued and replaced by bonuses based on subjective acheivements, management often made sexist and racist comments inside the office, free thinking was frowned upon.
