    Pros

    Pros don't exist but they love to tell you how great they are and how changes are coming. Changes?!?? Yeah cutting jobs and budgets but still expect 15% growth. Get real!

    Cons

    Unrealistic goals Management blames their sales force vs upper management admitting they were wrong. Horrible pay Bonus structure is at a high school level pay grade. Develop and make products without advice from a well respected and senior sales force. So products are wrong!!! Reason why is they do not want to hear the truth. They can't handle the truth. I mean it. Dozen more cons but won't keep going.

    Pros

    Great brand portfolio of high quality products to sell.

    Cons

    Recent change in sales culture from experienced relationship driven salespeople to turn and burn salespeople. Older experienced salespeople are being driven out and replaced with younger salespeople hired through an outside employment agency.

    Pros

    Fantastic Field Sales personnel. High quality products. Sometimes very innovative products.

    Cons

    Too top heavy with way too much invested in Headquarters personnel. No money to Market the product in a very competitive landscape. Many times last to market. New items have to be paid for (money calculated in the cost) to refund Germany for R&D. Many times competition allowed to use proprietary innovative product before North America could sell.

    Pros

    Good tools. Made some good friends among associate employees. Pay when the economy was good was not bad. Well recognized company.

    Cons

    No sense of direction in the long term business goals.. Unbelievable back stabbing at the corproate office. No teamwork whatsoever. Most of the the rats ae jumping ship (most of tenured management has left the company in the last several months, which may be a good thing).. Very little support to the field from the corporate office. Very unethical behavior witnessed in the field and at the corporate office. If you are at your core a dishonest, selfish, evil person....this may be a good place for you to work.
