Former Employee - Anonymous Employee says"They need to value their employees more. Unless you are in salesnor marketing there is a lack of appreciation or recognition for contributions."
Senior Manager says"Bad management, horrible benefits, lack of career growth"
Current Employee - Anonymous Employee says"Thanks for the review, we are working hard to listen and respond in fact this week we launched the 'drop by' lunch n learn sessions with our UK CEO and members of the leadership team - it was a great success and we're planning to make this type of informal exchange a regular diary event."
says"Commission percentages and the whole compensation structure needs to be reviewed. No sales leader. Company is run by finance department. Some people on Director-VP level are clearly over their heads so they naturally resort to micro-management making it a miserable place to work. V.P. of Sales has created a management v.s employee atmosphere that is hurting the business. Atmosphere is so political that there is no real assessment of talent. This stagnates any opportunities for mobility or increasing compensation for anyone who performs well."
Sales says"Horrible culture at times Senior Management seems to know nothing about management or people. Very Political Senior Management does not have the respect of middle management or the employees. There are some giant egos that are systematically destroying the business There is no training or effective management - management is based on call volume alone"
Former Employee - Anonymous Employee says"• COMPENSATION Outside of a sale position, Reed’s compensation starts on the lower end of the scale for area they are located, and annual increases do not usually match the cost of living increase. • WORK/LIFE BALANCE Reed is really working at getting this right, but I felt as though it needed to be mentioned. Depending on your workload, you may see 50 to 60-hour work weeks prior to an event. 60 to 80-hour work week at an event and then you may need to come home and pack to go back out again the following week. If you are working on 8 to 10 events a year, it is extremely difficult to maintain a healthy balance. • PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT Again, something Reed is working on, but it is a work in progress."
