Pros: good products
Cons: lack of team environment and communication
As a Senior Sales Analyst, I would review and report ongoing sales on a regular basis discovering gaps and opportunities for account managers to present to the applicable buyer. Analysis would include sales (overall and specific areas), inventory position, feature opportunities, and various other pieces of the overall business. The work and analysis is and has always been the enjoyable area, however the work environment from upper management down to supervisors within Piedmont was unstable and lacked continuity as well as the absence of a team environment. This was a newly developed company acquiring specific brands from a much larger company and the internal issues were, unfortunately, apparent from the beginning with over 50% turnover in less than 1 year. My direct co-workers were very friendly and qualified, although the sentiment that the company lacked overall direction seemed to be a shared feeling.
