Great co-workers, terrible upper management
Architectural and Design Sales Manager (Former Employee) –  Houston, TXMarch 14, 2019
Day to day tasks were typical of any sales position. Short term numbers driven goals without any consideration for long term pipeline. In a commercial construction sales market the typical project turnaround is 12-18 months. Management wanted to see short term sales within 6-9 months of hiring and on a large scale. This is NOT realistic. Feasible... yes... but promotes a high-stress environment and consequently high turnover rate. In order to gain loyalty from customers (I.E. architects, interior designers, and developers/Owners) it is important to nurture and build the relationship over time. Upper management does not support this initiative and therefore sets their sales team up for failure. The culture needs to change and would be best served by hiring individuals with experience in the field for higher pay that have existing relationships and customer trust and less focused on inexperienced individuals that can be acquired for low pay. Problem is as soon as they ask for more compensation or advancement, or heaven forbid start "threatening" the positions of upper management by questioning how processes can actually be improved and/or how management can better support the individual's initiatives... they are cut loose thus ultimately breaking the relationship with the customer.
Pros
Good benefits package, beautiful product
Cons
Poor upper management, poor understanding of commercial market

Demanding and fast past, good employee and fun
Customer Service/Dispatch/Coordinator (Former Employee) –  Austin, TXAugust 9, 2018
The management was great. I would have to coordinate a lot what the company basic does which is install counter tops. The people were great and the hardest part was what installer wouldn't show up or if a job was not ready I would have to break the news to the customer that we couldn't install their new counter tops that day.
Pros
Company lunches and overtime
Cons
unreliable sub contractors and when jobs were not done on time

Focus on data entries over customer visits
Market Promoter (Former Employee) –  Orange County, CAMay 7, 2018
Too much emphasis on data entry in CRM system rather than focusing on customer relationships. Employee turn over was high and it didn't look good for the company.

One good brand with no talent at the top
Architect and Design Sales Manager (Former Employee) –  Long Beach, CAMay 3, 2018
Great Brand with no talent from the top. The GM's and upper management lack training and therefore the office staff/support is also ill trained. Culture is divided by the office staff and the sales staff. The right foot doesn't know what the left foot is doing. High turn over. High stress. Low compensation. Micro management on CRM. Days do not end till 7pm or later because of the required amount of data entry into the CRM.
Pros
Great opportunity to meet amazing designers and architects
Cons
Demand on closing projects is high and there is no training

HR is horrible, they will lie as much as they can.
Manager in Training (Former Employee) –  Dallas-Fort Worth, TXApril 12, 2018
Horrible management. You need to know someone personally or may be give some personal favor in order to get a good job. Senior management does not care and does not know what is happening on the ground. Too much of turn over of employees.
Pros
No professionalism
Cons
Haven't seen one

Horrible management
Sales (Former Employee) –  Los Angeles, CAMarch 29, 2018
Managers are not professional, they do not treat employees equally, constantly change processes, don't provide training and have horrible employee retention. If you are not "Spanish" you will more than likely not be treated equally. The company culture does not embrace "work - life" balance.
Pros
Good product mix
Cons
Horrible management

Fast pace enviornment - stressfull at times
Operations Manager (Current Employee) –  Mount Kisco, NYJanuary 2, 2018
Never ending addition of job tasks and responsibilities that often leave you struggling. This position requires a highly organized and motivated individual that has a strong desire to produce under constant change. This is a very rewarding position for the right individual. This is a position that starts before you walk in the door and past the moment you get home but at the same time is very rewarding when your center is successful and safe and you have a good supporting team to work with.
Pros
Team, safety
Cons
Hours, lack of training, learn by error

Its a layed back work place
Computer Systems/Networking Administrator (Current Employee) –  Coral Gables, FLDecember 5, 2017
It's a good place to work. You do not have people that stand over your shoulder making sure your work gets done. You are treated as a adult and expected to get your job done on your own.
Pros
Everything else
Cons
No paid lunch

Stressful
Doesn't matter (Former Employee) –  Rhode IslandSeptember 25, 2017
I worked there for sometime and during that time I noticed favoritism and a number of laws being broken. The management is rude and unprofessional. Some of the employees are great then there is the others, as in illegal immigrants, some with criminal records. Those "employees" were given higher pay and raises, they were treated better and had more freedom to do what they wanted. The manager had full knowledge of this and didn't care. If you are looking for a job please take my advice and look elsewhere.
Pros
none that i can think of
Cons
Rude management, poor pay and raises, working with criminals.
