    I have been working at Valassis full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Work from home office, excellent culture, friendly work environment, realistic and reachable sales goals

    Cons

    Company is going through an acquisition and there is some uncertainty of what the future holds. The salary is low, but, the opportunity to make up for that in commission exists. Internally the company is an organizational nightmare, half of the employees are based on the east coast and close well before the West Coast is finishing their day. Overall, there is a need for a tighter knit structure that allows each department to communicate efficiently and effectively.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Higher incentives for meeting and exceeding sales goals. Organizational restructuring. More competitive pricing. Investment in digital offering.

    Long process. Hiring manager wanted someone that could deal with sales people rants and not be offended. Gave the impression office is laid back and great people to work with.
