Large turnover in management which causes constant changes
Business/Management Consultant (Current Employee) – North and South Carolina – September 17, 2018
I have had 6 different managers in 8 years at Thermo. This causes constant changes in the way we report and operate. I believe most of the sales team see the force as being unstable because of this. Job security is something employees should not have to worry about especially if they are making or exceeding their goals. A typical work day entails working with channel partners, instrument, life science and chemical partners seeing customers and meetings to discuss strategies and follow up. I also see customers for direct business.
The compensations benefits are very good but its the unstable culture of the company at the regional and national level that is worrisome.
The hard part of the job is trying to keep up with different resources and getting sales numbers on time to review. The easy part is being in front of customers closing business.
Company car and monthly commissions.
Not knowing from one day to the other if and when nthere will be new changes.
