    I have been working at Keirton full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    - Keirton strives to help people grow, customers and employees alike. The company is willing to provide opportunities for further development, including internal or external training, cross training, and new responsibility/accountability. Company is heavy on goal setting. Once a quarter, employees does goal setting that contribute to the overall company goals. These are tied to quarterly bonuses. - Colleagues are great to work with. People are open and honest. It's a collaborative atmosphere. There are BBQs, beer Fridays, catered lunches, etc throughout the year to build that comradery between colleagues. - Management listens to people want. After events or activities, there are feedback surveys done. Mental health is taken seriously and there are mental health initiatives. - Team morning huddles, Friday company wide huddles, Team meetings, one on ones are ways to ensure transparency in delivering information, goals and initiatives. - Environment is fast paced and everyday is something different. - Management recognizes deficiencies and make changes to correct them. However, these take time and can't be fixed overnight.

    Cons

    - Limited office space. Lack of proper desk in certain areas and tough to book meeting spaces especially for conference calls. - Parking spots are limited. They're on a first come first serve basis so if you come in late or go out during the day, you may lose your parking spot. If the road is undergoing some work or there's no parking allowed, nearest parking spots are a bit of a walk, especially in poor weather. - Revisit the employee compensation package as the whole quarterly bonus shouldn't be fully tied to the goal setting structure. It's very discouraging and demotivating when employees are unable to hit goals due to circumstances beyond their control. - Lack of structure and clear processes. There is lack of clarity as to who does what in the process or what is the process. - The company is growing faster than the people can keep up with. Depending on the position, the capacities are maxes and distribution of workload to other maxed capacity staff doesn't make the situation better. Although I've pointed out a number of cons, there are changes being made to fix the situation. As mentioned above, management recognizes the issues and are have plans in place to fix them. Rome wasn't built in a day.

    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Keirton full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    I'm two weeks away from my second year with Keirton Inc. I work remotely in the US and cover a few states within my territory. My position in the company requires close to 60% travel. As a Territory Sales Manager or Field Rep, you will be covering a large territory by car & plane. Relax, you do get the weekend's off and they don't expect you to work 12 hour days. If you enjoy traveling, meeting new people, building strong relationships, and building something special... look no further! Typical work week's are Monday -Friday with the weekends off. Exceptions to this would be trade shows or vendor days with our retailers which happen maybe 6-10 times a year. I've watched the company grow from 48 employees to now almost 80. I've witnessed promotions achieved within the company. Hard work, commitment, and being a team player pays off in the long run here. My Pros: I love my work family, I've never once felt micro-managed, You own your role in the company, Good Healthcare benefits, Travel Reimbursements - build those points up! Vacation time is great - specifically the longer you work here, Retirement Plan, Profit Sharing, Good base salary with quarterly bonuses that are achievable, fun office environment - I fly into Canada about 2-3 times a year. No drama, We really don't have a lot of turnover, We really do help businesses grow - which is a great feeling to have at the end of every work day. Our leadership team actually listens to what our employees say, want, and need. Which is a huge plus in my book.

    Cons

    It can be stressful at times and that's the only reason why I gave this review 4 stars instead of 5. Forecasting for any industry is never easy. Traveling quite a bit can sometimes get old. Until I remember working my corporate desk job 3 years ago and laugh. That being said, if you're not a little stressed from time to time, you most likely don't care anymore. At least that's what I've noticed. Some of these reviews have complaints about the parking. I don't work at the main office so I don't notice this. The last I heard a month ago, we're looking to move into a bigger building soon - So maybe take a breathe and "Walk it off" - Dad joke. We could use more team players. We gradually get busier every quarter, especially in the US with new states opening up. So hiring the right people to fill these new roles is crucial to our companies growth.
