      I worked at Salmat full-time for more than 6 years

      Pros

      Great culture to build friendships and lifelong connections. Many former employees have gone on to be very successful.

      Cons

      Wasn't a great work life balance in a Sales Account Manager/ Coordinator role. By 2017 it was as if management were happier to see staff resign then pay them commissions. Unrealistic growth targets in a declining industry meant that many staff in the letterbox distribution arm of the business missed out on commissions, whilst taking on significantly more work as other people around them resigned. The company became...

      Advice to Management

      Reward the staff that bring in and keep the revenue, don't make their lives harder. Let salespeople have a say, not just the finance team.

      I worked at Salmat full-time

      Pros

      Good colleagues and most people are friendly and helpful. The hours were flexible as long as you got your work done.

      Cons

      They are big on timesheets even though it doesn't add much value since it was never really acted on. New managers don't seem to get the correct management/leadership training and so the team suffers from poor management and staff end up leaving. Performance reviews were a waste of time as there was never any personal development.

      Advice to Management

      Provide the new managers with some leadership training before promoting them. Stop allowing managers to add whatever goals they feel like such as those where managers are meant to perform themselves. If you are going to do yearly reviews, act on them so that employees feel there is a purpose.

        Overtime always paid. Great people. Very helpful
