Extremely poor management

great company to work for if you enjoy never being acknowledged,

Territory Manager (Former Employee), Calgary, ABOctober 26, 2013
Unfortunately I am not a salesperson so this career path did not work out for me.
The benefits and some of the perks are great.

Long days and very little management support...only as good as your last deal
assistant vice president (Former Employee), CanadaFebruary 11, 2013
Pros: large cash rich company with strong growth
Cons: opportunities are limited to select groups and the young mba crowd!
Do not expect to advance if you are not well liked by a senior manager and do not possess an MBA. Top 3 per cent are getting wealthy while the bottom of the pyramid does the heavy lifting! If you like to be treated with respect and value life balance this is not for you. Keep looking outside EGOLAB!

Lost its appeal!
TERRITORY MANAGER (Former Employee), Mississauga, ONMay 25, 2012
Pros: decent pay if you work hard and a company car
Cons: 12-16 hour days to get to that "decent pay"
For a company that was so steaped in its culture at one point and time, it has gone down dramatically. Work/life balance is unheard of. Management behaves with little integrity and continue to further their careers at the expense of their people. Constant push for more and working within a thankless industry will take its toll.

This company was not just about soap...
Administrative Assistant (Former Employee), Elk Grove Village, ILApril 7, 2014
Pros: excellent team work
Cons: went threw recession
Very fast paced office from beginning to the end of my career. Helping customer and the salesmen were always top priority no matter what department or division I worked in. My teams were always so helpful and willing to assist. The most enjoyable part were the people I was able to work with. The hardest part of the was leaving all the relationships – more... I had built and saying good bye to my 12-1/2 year career with the company. – less

Low pay in a growing economy
Territory Manager (Current Employee), UTMarch 23, 2014
Pros: company car, somewhat autonomous
Cons: pay, management, work culture, balance of work and home, overnight travel
Started out good, but after the govt takes 20% of my income, your really not left will a whole lot. I was told I would be traveling about 6 nights a month. It quickly turned to 10-16 nights without any additional pay. They pay very low for how many hats we wear and considering we have grown 200%+ in 8 years. In 2013 my division grew 28% with roughly – more... 700 million in sales but we get paid less then the average of a territory manager in the industry. I went to a training with 19 new hires, only 9 remain. They don't realize with jobs coming back retention of employees is important. I currently work there but am leaving as I have already been offered 10k+ more for a more work/home balanced position. – less

Associate Territory Service Specialist (Former Employee), San Francisco, CAMarch 5, 2014
Pros: company vehicle, cell phone, ipad.
Cons: no overtime, with expectations of completed work and not enough time to complete.
A typical day at work included many hours of work off the time clock.in order to have enough time to manage customers and setting appointments. I learned a significant deal of management, behaving as a self employed contractor working out of my home. The hardest part of my job was time management. Conducting a repair with a equivalent time quote of – more... is very challenging.

The most enjoyable part of the job was my independence, as well with working directly with the company clients. I learned new equipment everyday, challenging my skills and growing with every repair. – less

Poorly Managed Company
Assembler (Current Employee), South Beloit, ILMarch 3, 2014
Cons: short breaks, fear of losing your job any day for no reason
When I first started I was told it would be Mon-Thur 6am to 4pm, I was there for almost 4 months and never had a Friday off and worked every other Saturday. The Full time people make it their mission to get the temps fired and that's exactly what happened to me, I am a very hard worker, was early to work every day and never missed a day and was terminated – more... because a coworker played a song with one swear word in it off of my iPod without my knowledge and one of the old women heard it and told on me for it and I was terminated that day with no previous infractions. I wouldn't recommend this place to my worst enemy! – less
