Not a bad employer
Corporate Automation and Safety Trainer (Current Employee) –  Hoffman Estates, ILJune 28, 2018
Our "MBO" performance review system is perceived by most employees as window dressing. Even the most dedicated and effective employees rarely achieve "exceed expectations" on performance reviews. We have a terrible problem with turn-over, loosing many of our top performers because compensation does NOT match performance. Whatever pay scale you agree to coming in the door will become your albatross, no mater what stellar outputs you deliver.

I also don't like the 'Kristallnacht' manner in which people are dismissed or leave the company. Its like they were taken out by an assassin's bullet . . just "POOF he gone".

On the good side, I respect our senior leadership for always fielding unfiltered questions from the peanut gallery during our 'town hall' meetings.
Pros
Great in-house technical training for employees
Cons
Pay not comensurate with performance

Excellent company that needs to work harder with employees with longevity and have been loyal to the company.
Marketing Manager - National & Catalog Channel (Former Employee) –  Hoffman Estates, ILMay 8, 2018
Excellent company providing complete compensation package and additional benefits very few companies match. Their employees are second to none. True example of a "work family".
Always concerned with giving back to the community,
Concerned with providing the "best" customer experience.


Unfortunately, a restructure / reorganization eliminated my position.
They let employees leave and walk employees out the door without regard to their knowledge and experience. They need to learn how to re-purpose these people.
Pros
Employees/complete compensation package/benefits
Cons
Disrespect to employee loyality

Great Managers to work with
Medical Equipment Sales Representative (Current Employee) –  Rivers StateJanuary 27, 2018
A typical day starts at 8am- a normal time for vibrant businesses in busy Nigerian cities. Usually, you start the day armed with a daily call plan. First calls are hospitals where you have a round of talks with Doctors and Medical Specialists of all sorts.
Scheduling appointments with busy professionals easily becomes a strong skill in your repertoire as a Medical Equipment Salesman with New Heights Pharma. Detailed discussions about how medical equipments impact the health of your clients' comes next.
Mails...mails...mails...it is normal to get around 10-15 mails faster than you can spell m-a-i-l-s...this is normal. Managers aren't usually on the field with reps and they need to get healthy feedback. Albeit, all mails are cordial and formal.
Every staff is treated with a lot regard, including the ones that are about to be "let go".

Fun place and very friendly work area's
Lead Customer Specialist (Former Employee) –  Lake Forest, ILDecember 25, 2017
Company was very fun to work at. People were very friendly and willing to help, whenever questions were asked. Customers who called in did not realize that they may have to send product in for repair and was upset if this happened. They also did not realize that product did have parts that would need to be replaced after a time. Then again it was very rewarding to be able to help a customer, who realized what the issue was and what they would have to look for in the future.
Pros
Work enviroment
Cons
some departments very critical
