    Pros

    Love the people I work with
    Flexible with schedule and time off

    Cons

    Poor management
    No room for growth
    Horrible pay for work being done
    understaffed

    Advice to Management

    Help your employees grow! Stop hiring from the outside, and promote from within. Recognize that every other broker in the area is paying AT LEAST $3/hr more than Advantage for the same work.

    Pros

    Independent, not stuck in an office all day. Variety, no boring repetitive tasks.

    Cons

    Milage and travel time pay does not cover the cost of fuel let alone wear and tear on your personal vehicle. Admin time pay does not cover the cost of office supplies, use of your personal electronics i.e. smart phone, tablet, laptop nor does it cover cellular data service or internet service. ASM is making a killing by shifting these overhead costs to employees without appropriate compensation.

    Advice to Management

    Fairly compensate employees for the above listed operating costs. You will find your retention rates will improve, which will reduce the cost of man hours spent searching for new employees, interviews, new hire processing and training.

    Pros

    Great fast-track program for recent graduates.
    Day after Thanksgiving, Christmas Eve and New Years' Eve are paid holidays for full-time employees.
    Fast-paced, challenging environment.

    Cons

    Glass ceiling.
    Tendency to overwork employees rather than hire for new positions. Field merchandisers, supervisors and regional managers are particularly overworked and held to grossly unrealistic expectations.

    Pros

    Love the job. They are good to their employees. They have trust for their employees. It is fun,and you get to speak with a lot of people.

    Cons

    When the demos slow down, the hours are few. They need to gt more clients to keep the associates busy. It would be nice if they had insurance for their part time employees.

    Advice to Management

    Get more clients, and get insurance for all employees.

    Great Boss, and great people to work with.

    Cons

    Get laid off for long periods of time, sometimes you only work 3 hours a day but promised 8. Sometimes your pay doesn't come in on time. If I didn't love the work I wouldn't of stayed as long.

    Pros

    Not Many. Not having to go into an office everyday. Work with some great people.

    Cons

    Work life balance is non existent. Poor compensation for the work that is expected. The ES run this asylum. Lack of support. ES can lie, steal and cheat and you are told to coach them. Afraid of being sued I guess. You work 24/7 and through your days off (DM's past and present should be compensated for that time that they should have been off from work) ES think it's ok to call you whenever they feel like it even at midnight and no matter how many times you ask them not to they call on days off as well. Inconsistent on Bonus. Takes on projects knowing that there is not enough staff or equipment to handle it. Then DM's get pressured to make it happen and other customers suffer. High Stress, Low Pay and a heart attack waiting to happen that is what this job is

    Advice to Management

    Pay the District Managers a better rate and stop trying to have them do the work of 5 people. Let them actually take their days off and decompress. Add an assistant (part time) to assist the DM's when they are off or travelling
