    Pros

    Incentive programs were excellent and bonuses as a team were also great!

    Cons

    If the over all sales quotas aren't met as a team there is a chance the location will close down, (cease to exist)

    Advice to Management

    Keep a closer look out on upper management, store managers tend to break rules for personal reasons.

  2. An interesting place to work.

    Pros

    You get to work with customers face to face. Income can be anywhere from $24 thousand to osix figures. Great incentive trips.

    Cons

    This is a big ticket item type of sales and is not for everyone. You have to get a high sales number to make a decent income.

    Advice to Management

    Be very knowledgeable about the current General Managers you have at your Sales Centers and their current sales techniques and state of mind.

    Pros

    The on site wellness center is nice. And the quarterly bonuses are nice. Some of the departments are easy to work with.

    Cons

    Unrealistic project deadlines and upper management that does not fully understand what is being implemented. Sometimes when there is a problem they go to everyone but the person who can help solve it.

    Advice to Management

    Sometimes you need to listen to the people directly involved with a problem and hear their side of things.

    Pros

    On-site gym
    on-site restaurant
    Opportunity for advancement = A-
    Generous sick time and vacation time
    Sufficient training
    sufficient manager feedback
    Fair and structured bonus system
    Some really great people are and have been employed by this Corporation

    Cons

    Costs of living, dollar value and micro economics is not considered when hourly workers are reviewed for annual reviews/raises. Raises are based on merit. A 7 cent raise to an hourly wage is insulting.

    The company's benefits are self funded therefore, costs are high for limited coverage. Meets the minimum required after the "Affordable Care Act"
    $1000 deductible medical, a lot of $ out of pay checks, very limited number of in network doctors, many of the specialists are out of network, regulatary costs increase 5%-18% annually, yet co-pays increase along with others, emergency room visits. You are encouraged to go to urgent care.

    Advice to Management

    Take into consideration the cost of living when annual raises Take place. If it is based on merit and somebody gets a raise of seven cents they should've been fired.

    Take a look at benefits of Fannie Mae and other self-funded competitors with 14,000 employees. The penny-pinching tactics provided by the limited benefit coverage is borderline unacceptable.

    Keep up positive reinforcement, it's a winning system.

  10. Not a bad place to work.

    Pros

    Clear expectations, steady workload, good benefits, good hours,

    Cons

    There is a definite us vs them atmosphere between management and shop labor. Pay scale is very much slanted towards management. Communication and planning is poor.

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to work more with planning. a company this size should have production scheduled out at least 3 to 4 weeks.

  11. It was a starting point...
