    Pros

    Fairly good pay for supervisors and people with relevant experience, benefits are good as well. The structure is there, but it still relies heavily on individuals.

    Cons

    Terrible manager oversight. One higher level manager can screw it all up. Lower level managers can get away with a lot of laziness and hypocrisy if they maintain good personal relationships with higher managers.

    Advice to Management

    Checks and balances. Managers need to oversee managers and vice versa. If one high up manager sucks, it trickles down into an environment with little accountability. Bad for any lower level employees or non-supervisors.

    Pros

    Working for corporate accounts allows me to go to school in the evenings.

    Cons

    You need to be on your game at all times to give great customer service!

    Advice to Management

    Too much busy work for the laborer such as paperwork, the paperwork becomes arbitrary after awhile no one really checks it... that's why you have management they're getting "paid" to do the busy work the laborer produces, and management overseas production!
