    Pros

    -Very generous with their free staff products

    Cons

    -Company's research is slowing down, so it is hard to boast the best company in the business anymore

    Advice to Management

    More Training!! The girls need to know 100% what their talking about to sell those pricey pricey products!

    Pros

    Pretty reasonable work/life balance during the good/quiet times, compensation has always felt fair. Coworkers are generally good folks.

    Cons

    Declining numbers, lack of profitability and a stagnating culture are all big problems. Project work and peak seasons can get crazy. Incredible stress and very long hours with little understanding/awareness from management of the long term consequences on morale.

    Advice to Management

    Management must strive to identify the people, products, sites, processes, and systems that are beneficial to the company and helpful in the work environment - and then begin to dramatically change or jettison those that aren't. A top down change is in order.

    Pros

    Freedom to make your schedule but there are times of the year you can not take off.

    Cons

    Workload is enough that 2 people could be sharing the position and still not get everything done the way it should be.

    Advice to Management

    Hire AC's to help AE's

    Pros

    Very fun environment to work in, very stylish and hip. Compensation is on the lower end for entry level jobs but an opportunity for upward mobility.

    Cons

    Management is uninvolved with the day-to-day operations, the company discriminates based on ethnicity. Need to take on a lot of responsibility and pick up the slack from other employees, very often in higher positions.

    Advice to Management

    Need to redefine the organization

    Pros

    Modern tooling: workforce amiable, but their A to Z enterprise process, which include proper training and orientation is forty years past.

    Cons

    " Egos, and Department management has rather inflated ones. Front line supervisors are good.
    " Tooling is modern, product is somewhat in demand, Directors are full of themselves.
    * But EA is a source for income and most companies have their challenges.

    Advice to Management

    Take your eyes off your offices, dream of what can be. A streamlined, "Lean" pick and output.
