    Pros

    Competitive salary, great benefits and great opportunity for career growth. Tuition reimbursement is also a benefit. This company seems only to hire very dedicated and talented people. This is the first company that I have seen where I was unable to find a person that was not great at something.

    Cons

    Work life balance and rigid guidelines on internal career path. In order to gain a position in a desired career path you must first walk through all levels of the company. This is great in practice however to gain a job in finance, marketing or upper management it can take a long time based on opportunities and positions available.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Allow for more career growth opportunities outside of the standard path. Or allow for an exposure program so staff can gain experience / connections in other sdepartments within the company.

    Pros

    Company Vehicle - Ford Escape, paid insurance, new car every 3 years, Full benefits, 401k, 401k match up to 6%, Optional Roth 401k, nice bonus at the end of the year (assuming you hit your goals), salary increase based on merit every year, work from home/your car, only have to work with your boss once a month, flexible schedule.

    Cons

    You have to deal with people who can barely speak english, you are in and out of convenience stores all day, it is easy to get sick from all the people you interact with all day, your clients are not well educated and therefore run a gas station or liquor store, contracts and prices are constantly changing, you have to roll up your sleeves and get a little dirty at times, you have to self-evaluate yourself twice a year for perforance reviews, and you can find yourself working long hours if you don't keep a healthy work-life balance.

    Can be hard to get promoted - the company is not creating new positions, but rather filling positions as they open up.

    Great health, dental, vision, and 401k
    High compensation for job
    Company spends what they earn on employees
    Flexible scheduling

    Older employees clogging up management chain

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I would recommend focusing on true talent and finding ways to make them happy. They tend to put new hires in Podunk territories and then lose good employees they could have kept.
