Interesting interaction across many division combining diverse products portfolio
Sales Manager HV & UHV Products (Former Employee) – Brisbane QLD – 5 November 2015
At a sales management level you are working completely autonomously at a pre-tender phase but then the red tape is huge. However an interesting organisation that services the Aero, Oil & Gas, Energy, Water and Money sectors of business where there is opportunity to move within and learn other niche products & services in a completely different field as well as working across several divisions on large projects/tenders combining products. Most of the staff are very skilled in their particular field, friendly and helpful.
The whole local structure (including senior management) is restricted in decision making by mandatory US involvement which definitely impedes Australian business. This issue is the hardest part to come to terms with if you as a sales manager are use to making your own decisions and issuing tenders without intervention (following business rules). In saying that, the company was very flexible (work from home etc) and has a strong care culture especially family.
Great Sales Incentive scheme
Mandatory US involvement. Too much red tape
