8 Motion Industries Company Reviews and Ratings


Anonymous Employee
Posted 8 months ago in Atlanta, GA

"20 plus years in sales with MI and I find the opportunity to increase commissions very limited due to the the structure of national contracts. Too much work for compensation plan due lack of inside sales support, time consuming cost saving reports, and locked gross profit margins due to poorly written corporate contracts. There is no incentive to work most national accounts."
