    Mixed feelings

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    Pros

    Excellent products, loyal customers who have been with the company often for many years.

    Cons

    Overly focused on a large number of appointments which leads to quantity over quality (in my opinion).

  2.  

    If you like to be a serf in an oligarchy, this is your place.

    Pros

    Its a job. The company has been around for a long time and I dont se it going away anytime soon. Thats solid!

    Cons

    Low pay. I once was a professional.. until everything I went to school for and have gained by working in the field was undermined. I am told what to do. There is no thinking, since I was threatened to be terminated for doing so. (And my job requirement is to do some thinking lol.) No communication. No meetings. Nothing. Less than nothing.

    If you are not part of the top 6 or so people you are expendable. Expect to be disrespected. You are a dummy. They have long noses to look down upon your idiot self... with a smile mind you. ;) The power dynamic is closed shut and there is no room for movement. Expect your self esteem to float away and confidence to be sapped.

    Raises? Nothing based on your work, but a communal 4% and not every year. I am probably underpaid by 30% for my skill set.

    Pros

    Good company to work for, very stable and has been around for years. Advanced security in a field that sometimes has problems.

    Cons

    Should listen to employees more and have better advancement for them. There are a lot of competitors in this market.

    Pros

    The products are superior to others within the same catagory. Customer base is loyal and consider it to be the best in the market.

    Cons

    Management does not respect the employee base. Their strategy of how they go to market puts them in a bad light with their distribution network.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Spend more time educating the end users and dealers, less time strong-arming distributors.
