PES is a horrible company with a somewhat good product. Where they ripped me and at least 200 other Spokane off is through their ruthless employment tactics. It is time that somebody puts the truth out there.
Spokane's employment options are limited, at best. PES preys on this fact. What's more is how successful they have been in quieting all opposition placed against them. I will not be silenced.
My main area of concern is with their sales department. Most companies have quotas. But most sales managers TRAIN their suvordinates how to achieve the goals properly. Not at PES. The sales manager is entirely incompetent. Non-communicative. Mean-spirited. Hires and fires on a whim. Has an "inner-crcle" of three female, die-hard alcoholic employees who feed him hearsay and drama. (After they "befriend" coworkers to glean personal details.) Which he loves. He micromanages to a stifling extreme.
Once an employee outside his circle churns tp enough potential business, he fires them and hands the boiling hot leads to his Evil Trinity members. Who rip each other apart on a regular basis — like pitbulls on crack. The workplace is a dirty battlefield at PES. Sales leads stolen. Clients misinformed. Anything to land a deal.
The CEO/CFO/Whateverhecallshimselfthisweek advised me that he encourages female emps to offer "favors" or at least phone sex to potential cllient prospects. Not a big shock. He propositions his underlings frequently.
Added to these issues, PES never issues performance reviews, pays poorly and changes the comp package constantly, Refuses ro offer plans for improvement to syruggling staffers and has such a lousy reputation in Spokane that I took them off of my resume.
What do I want out of this? I want PES to fire or reassign their sales manager. He is a laughingstock. I want PES to hire ONLY for retention. I want PES to fire their Evil Trinity. I want PES to be fair in iy's practices. The cirizens of Spokane are good people. Hard workers. We need our jobs.
Knowing that my above wishes will not be granted, I at least want job candidates to know the truth.
