Suggestions for improvement

  • There should be a representation of women & minorities in the upper levels of management. There should also be some means where employees can send in suggestions on how to improve the workplace or even improve on the way we do our jobs daily that could ultimately save the company money.

What I like about the company

They seem to be trying to make improvements to make the company more profitable which will result later down the road in better bonuses for the employees.

What I dislike about the company

I disapprove of decisions being made that will directly affect the daily flow of work for the employees and adversely affect customers and no input is asked of the employees before hand.

Support from management

My manager was stretched to thin and was unable to help me most times. He was extremely knowledgeable but was focused on the big players and team members that were with the company the longest.

Teamwork

What team work??

Freedom to work independently

Company used outdated sales methods and sales structure. Was not a sustainable model.

Overall compensation for your work

Very poor sales structure. All expenses for sales were NOT reimbursed. We were supposed to pay out of pocket for installation of equipment.

Company Image

Excellent products, company is well known

Job Security

The way the structure is set up it is unsustainable for new reps to come on board. The company has lifers that have been there for years, as they retire, who knows what will happen.

Challenging Work

The job was interesting and I learned alot, unfortunately the support was not there.

What I like about the company

Great products, great reputation for products

What I dislike about the company

Horrible Sales support, no reimbursement for travel or business expenses.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Too late now, the company will shrink, and may become more profitable but really tarnishing the brand. None of your chemicals will clean up that mess.

What I like about the company

Name/Brand recognition made getting in the door in sales easier.

What I dislike about the company

Everything else. New ownership/leadership is screwing it up.
