    Pros

    Enjoyed going to work where my ideas and suggestions were appreciated. This business is a family owned business with support from a global company. Encouraged to "think out of the box" and act as an entrepreneur of your own business. Owner(s) and Area Manager supportive and challenge you never to find your comfort zone. Great motivators and truly lead by example.

    Cons

    Small office with limited staff. In our location, 3 employees to handle all aspects of the business. Often frustrating trying to grow the business but feeling like you did not have the resources to do so.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep listening to the feedback of the individuals who work for you. Just listening to those that work for you is far more than most employers do these days. Don't stop challenging your staff to strive for excellence everyday; by doing so you allowed me to do things I never thought I was capable of doing.
