Inadequate manager
financial analyst (Current Employee) –  Deerfield, ILJanuary 7, 2016
Would be a great environment if only management was kept in check. Certain rules apply on an individual basis, not on a departmental basis. Overall, a flexible work schedule most of the time.
Pros
company shutdown during holidays
Cons
departmental rules set by manager

Use to be a great company....now not so much.
Sr. Sales Representative (Current Employee) –  OhioOctober 23, 2015
Does not pay for performance. Wants everyone to make the same amount of money.

Top performers carry the weight and never get rewarded for their efforts.
Pros
Somewhat secure
Cons
low $$, pretty much NO advancement by field sales, goals are outlandish and not equal amongst region
