Demanding sales revenue growth, but handcuffing you to the computer
Sales Specialist, National Account Manager, (Former Employee) –  Tulsa, OK and USMay 9, 2016
Difficult to work under "micro" manangement...
Management wants growth of revenue and "requires" a certain number of calls a day, yet FAIL to look at the "quality" of the calls or the "actual" growth obtained.

Simply put, management reflects on the wrong focus to obtain required growth and is not willing to reflect on their management practices.

Decent place
Branch General Manager (Former Employee) –  MultipleApril 30, 2016
This is a decent place to work, but some of the upper levels of management are part of the "good ole boys" network and that leads to stagnation and limited advancement.
