Pfauter Sucks Customer Reviews and Feedback
Steve Pfauter ("Human") (born November 7, 1963, in San Francisco, California, United States) is an American musician and set dresser and former bass guitarist for the punk rock band The Vandals, from 1980 until 1984.
Pfauter album 'Internet Dating Superstuds' is the worst album released by the band in their 20-year career, songs are dumb, not memorable, and have no catchiness, according to a review by AntiochArrow at rateyourmusic.com
"Yeah, The Vandals finally did it, they released probably their worst album to date in their long 20 some year history. Why isn't it good? Because the songs are so dumb and the catchiness that was there in Look What I Almost Stepped In is not here on Internet Dating Superstuds. There are no tracks that make me like this album more, not one, not one memorable song. I feel cheated that they put this garbage out."

Marketing Manager (Former Employee) says"Executive Marketing VP leads by fear and intimidation. He is the epitome of all those memes that compares a BOSS vs a LEADER..he’s a boss.. The executive marketing leadership is a TRIO of stale and unimaginative marketing execs that lead the product roadmap which is ONLY reactive to what the competition does. And from that TRIO, are two spineless lieutenants that are rubber-stamp yes men to their boss. They keep recycling marketing ideas that worked in the early 2000’s. Thinking outside of the Makita Box will only get you blacklisted as a NON-Yes Man. They say they want fresh ideas but are quick to shoot down anything new. The marketing leaders have never held a job at another company. They have no outside perspective of how a successful company is run. The only thing keeping Makita afloat are the international subsidiaries and a strong , albeit dwindling, following that is quickly learning that the competition is offering a better cordless battery platform and more useful and thoughtful products at a faster launch rate than at Makita. Japanese leadership is totally clueless as to how bad the executive marketing managers are screwing up the Makita Legacy. Japanese leadership has no idea of the US market either. The sales force turns over at an abysmal rate that HAS to be the worst retention rate in the industry. Training is non-existent. The first day on a sales job is basically the following: “Here’s a list of outdated client information... now go sell”. The product management team has immense talent on the Associate Product Manager level but they are systematically excluded"

Cons: Poor Management, Tools are cheaper in store than to employee"
Territory Manager, Makita USA (Former Employee) says"District Manager in Southern California treats you like your in the military. It's his way or the highway, over half the sales team in his District has either quit or been fired since he took over 8 months ago. Biggest micro manager I've ever seen although he claims not to micro manage. You will get no training and then get written up for,not knowing how to,do things. The company has so much potential but holds itself back. Cons: Horrible Compnay Culture and No Job Security"
