    Pros

    Good discounts Strong name for a CV Good teams ASL are generally great people Sometimes have to missell to hit targets

    Micro management Unrealistic targets They bleed you dry for rubbish pay Performance management for not hitting targets Bullying Go to hell franchise owners

    Advice to Management

    We all know that the industry has changed. Keep going the wrong way and you will lose the best people you have. Franchising has ruined the reputation of the company. All the fun of selling phones has gone completely. This job isn't for me anymore

    Pros

    I love the company, it offers lots of opportunities to develop your professional career and it operates in an exciting market.

    Cons

    Internal fragmentation and lack of global vision prevents the company from reaching its full potential.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on long term rather than the next financial quarter, end internal fragmentation, and make business units not only responsible but accountable.
