    Pros

    As a salaried employee we had great pay and benefits. We were allowed to function with a great deal of autonomy and never were micro-managed.

    Cons

    Since it is such a big company, you some times feel as you are merely a number.

    Pros

    Good benefits, salary, bonus for someone out of college. You also receive company car, paid internet, cell phone, and paid internet.

    Cons

    This ship is going down hard. The sinking isn't happening as fast as the Titanic but it's happening! executive management is incompetent pushing out promotional deals and programs that don't work

    Advice to Management

    Get back to basics like treating your sales people right. We are the bread and butter that keep this ship going.

    Keep up the good work.
