Attitude towards older colleagues

Look to higher younger to pay less

Career Development

They pretend to but it was more about who you know and who knows you

Overall compensation for your work

Compensation was always good but maybe to good where they over paid at times

Company Image

I was in the beginning

Job Security

always felt a risk of change. They talked about how change was good but it only seemed to be good for "Company" as a Whole but the non management employees were subject to possible layoff or ultimatums ( take this position or a severance package)

Low pay

2.28

Suggestions for improvement

  • Pay competitively. For anyone trying to advance beyond sales, you can only look at it as a training program, very difficult to take a huge pay cut to advance your career.

What I like about the company

It is a fun industry.

What I dislike about the company

They do not pay competitively. Pay is very low compared to similar jobs. This does not include sales which is still limited but better due to a union. Although, I do not think the bonus pool system is great, they should just pay higher commission and eliminate the bonus pool and sales reps competing against each other.
