Typical work day
Account Manager (Former Employee) –  Milwaukee, WIOctober 5, 2017
At Direct Supply you are required to hit 6 hours logged in on the phone, 2 hours of talk time, 30 calls a day. With that you are also required to make calls to customers that don't want to do business with Direct Supply when you start out; that will change when you get placed in a territory.

Computer Information Systems Platform Engineer II (Former Employee) –  Milwaukee, WIAugust 11, 2017
Direct supply was a very unique company to work for. I would compare it best to a Silicon Valley operation. It was a lot of fun but there was a lot of changes in the management and the focus.

I thoroughly enjoyed working with the staff at PFI and the Corp team was fantastic. They offered multiple learning opportunities, but again there was no room for advancement.

Assistant Sales Manager (Former Employee) –  Corona, CAMay 31, 2017
We would have weekly office parties whenever we met our sales goals the previous week. Commission was fair. Pay was weekly...Just a shame that the owner sold the company. It was never the same after that.

Great starter job for low level candidate
Administrative Coordinator (Former Employee) –  Milwaukee, WIMarch 19, 2017
I don't recommend applying unless you are young, single and don't mind low pay. This is a good job for someone just out of college. It also might be a good fit if you have a special skill they are looking for. If you come in mid career, don't expect much. They will work you like a dog. The way they choose candidates for leadership roles is ridiculous and most of them are ineffective and have no clue what they are doing.
Pros
Free Soda & LaCroix
Cons
Too many to list

Software Engineering Burnout and Reorganization
Software Engineer (Current Employee) –  Milwaukee, WIMarch 8, 2017
Engineering at Direct Supply has recently has turned into a "feature-factory-motivated" endless workday that is driving the top talent to look at other opportunities. Leadership believes that no one will leave the company and has acted accordingly with how they treat their engineers.

It has not been uncommon to come into work early, be asked to stay late, and sign back online for a release when you get home. A 12-hour day has started to become the norm with no additional compensation or benefit to the engineers themselves.

Every one in a while leadership tries to show appreciation, but appreciation only goes far when they continue to push us to extremes. Direct management doesn't care or doesn't have the power to push back on unrealistic expectations set by upper management.

Upper management at one point this past year asked everyone to do an engagement survey (potentially since they knew morale was low) and then completely disregarded the results and increased the workload on their engineering teams under the guise of their yearly event.

Instead of changing their business practices, leadership doubled down and blamed the engineers for their performance and opted to just reorganize structure rather than look at their business practices. The latest change publicly took senior engineers and replaced them with business people in an effort to drive more work and increase quality. However, the quality and output that the engineering teams can create is continuing to fall and leadership refuses to admit they made a mistake.

There is little confidence from me
  more... or anyone I talk to in software engineering that anything will be done differently going forward.  less
Pros
Free pizza downtown, a bar, foosball table, shuffleboard, profit sharing.
Cons
Very long hours, no work-life balance, bad senior management forecasting, unhelpful middle management, demotivated engineering department

Dog Friendly Workplace
TELS Operations Support (Former Employee) –  Milwaukee, WINovember 2, 2015
I was a contract employee there for 8 months. I felt that I was treated as a non-team member while I was there. It was nice that they worked with me on the hours I worked which were 7-330. They treat their permanent employees very well. Many free lunches and perks. You can bring your dog to work any time you like. The support , coaching and feedback that I needed was non-exsitant.
Pros
Lots of free lunches & employee perks
Cons
Not a place to learn & grow.

Great entry level sales position. You build a great network of colleagues, and the work environment is a lot of fun. The pay is low-to-mid market value, though great benefits. Good place to get experience then move on.
Pros
