Sinking Ship
Corporate Office (Former Employee) –  Grand Rapids, MINovember 15, 2016
The job itself is interesting and challenging. Most people are helpful and nice. Upper management and executives are disconnected from employees and industry as a whole. Things will continue to get worse until a lot of changes are made.
Pros
Good Pay, Nice coworkers
Cons
Job Security, company outlook

Great working conditions and environment, freindly atmosphere.
Drafting Team Leader/Applications Engineer (Current Employee) –  Grand Rapids, MIMay 5, 2014
Great place to work, friendly coworkers and good leadership. Not as high stress as other places I've worked, lead times are reasonable and management is understanding and flexible for family friendliness. Lots of elaborate processes and workflows, tend to be overly complicated and create some repetitive, monotonous work. Cross departmental communication could be improved but generally everyone is willing to help to accomplish necessary tasks. Overall, a great place to work.
Pros
Comfortable working environment/nice updated facilities, great people
Cons
Job tasks can become cumbersome

Industry Leader - Inspiring Place to Work
Regional Sales Manager (Former Employee) –  Grand Rapids, MISeptember 6, 2012
Typical day was setting appointments/product demonstrations, arranging demo product pickup and deliveries, meeting with key manufacturing contacts to insure on-time deliveries, maintain relations with key manufacturing customers, visiting customers, attending state/regional/national industry shows.

Privately held company. Management seldom secure in current position held.

Co-workers often unsure of management support.

Enjoyable for creative types to collaborate with clients to develop unique product outcomes.

Company Driven By Customers and Marketing
Regional Sales Manager (Former Employee) –  Grand Rapids, MISeptember 6, 2012
Typical day involved monitoring product orders and shipments to wholesale/ chair account / military warehouses. Additionally track employee reported visitation of retail outlets and activities performed.
Monitor product promotional expenditures versus budgets weekly. Visit territories with employees to witness application of market strategies and note results.

Company was a laboratory for ideas of product development, marketing and promotion.

Co-workers lived the product imagery created- Camel man, More woman, felt compelled to deliver success at work.

Hardest part of job was contacting retail customers in rough urban areas with vehicles filled with (easy convertible to cash) cartons of cigarettes.

Enjoyable part of job was representing company at public events like NASCAR, Ebony Fashion Fair, Vantage Senior Golf Tournaments.
Pros
mba-quality training in marketing, employee development
Cons
