    Pros

    Good pay, benefits and work/life balance, at least in my division. Fantastic co-workers who are motivated to deliver excellence to clients and customers. Fun team to work with.

    Cons

    Cost cutting at the administrative and retail levels have impacted service and put strain on the operators, detracting us from delivering to clients and customers. But ASM is in a tough industry with aggressive competitors, so the balancing act in winning/retaining new clients must be incredibly tough.

    Advice to Management

    You want your associates to act like entrepreneurs, but burden them with HR and accounting bureaucracy. Something has to give! I hope you will bend toward entrepreneurship (so much more fun and exciting), but over the past few years, I see ASM becoming more and more bureaucratic.

    Pros

    Benefits are great, full time still have a lot of flexibility.

    Cons

    ASM management promised their client too much. Maybe management should see the real world sometime and quit putting all the work on the low paying RSM. Far to much driving and wear and tear on your vehicle for such a small amount of reimbursement. After 10 years I was totally burnt out!

    Advice to Management

    Stop living in your glass offices and get into the field more. Compensate your employees for the use of their private vehicles. Stop using our homes as a warehouse. Check up on supervisors more often.

    Pros

    Work your own hours. Once you hit 40 hours, you're done. Can have longer weekends

    Cons

    The amount of time given for your job at the stores takes way less than what it's supposed to be. A lot of stalling

    Advice to Management

    Pay better.

    I worked at Advantage Sales and Marketing part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Easy work. No set hours. Work until you're done rather it's 3 hours or 10 hours.

    Cons

    Slows way down through the second half of the year. Quite a bit of travel involved.

    Advice to Management

    Over hiring takes away from other workers income being we are payed per piece.

    I worked at Advantage Sales and Marketing part-time

    Pros

    What I really liked about the company was how in touch with my needs my supervisor was.

    Cons

    Support is sometimes snappy with you. Jobs would sometimes be changed twelve or less hours before.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure you hire friendly people for support. I didn't like the snappish people.

    I have been working at Advantage Sales and Marketing (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The company has a lot of good people and has some opportunities for growth. If you want an easy way to get into the CPG world, ASM is a great starting place to learn the basics of the business.

    Cons

    The senior management is more interested in their own agendas vs. helping to develop their employees. Also the pay and benefits for this industry is incredibly low.
