In Washington/Oregon sales representatives are under extreme pressure by aggressive manager who be-littles the Sales employees. Staff is afraid to speak up in fear of retaliation. New Home Consultants have zero protection from Management. Sales Manager has workers walking on egg shells and upper management simply looks the other way. No real HR department in office. Bad management has crushed the spirits of sales reps who are the front line of customer contact. Great Consultants who are put under extreme stress can’t sell like happy ones will. Upper management doesn’t talk with Sales representatives to find how unhappy we all are. Only new representatives are happy for the new job. As long as you do not have an opinion, thought or question you’ll be treated well. Sales Manager does not permit speaking with upper management or lead office representatives or you are reprimanded and pulled away from them.
Office staff is friendly. Great company, wonderful training. Area sales managers are great.
Awful place to work, if the "favorite employee"of the manager (which didn't do anything all day besides walk all day telling everyone how busy they are) doesn't like you, then that's it they let you go. Same person got rid of about 4 that I knew of,and the problem was not her. You go to complain and your the target to get fired.
Catty, childish and gossipy. If you're not part of the cliq, they'll gladly show you the door.
Nice Company except that division. Beware of the Purchasing Director and his lackey.

People that work there are great people- managers are promoted for being ruthless. Most employees are afraid of losing their jobs because that's their culture there; its condoned and even the very best leave there wondering exactly what they did wrong. It's mostly because the managers have something to cover up.
Like most large companies, it's all about the money and not so much about the employees.
Back stabbing all over the place
