    Pros

    Flexibility and room for advancement

    Cons

    Some micromanagement- touts flexibility but then gets annoyed if you make and MD appt in the middle of your day when they need you to drop what you are doing and drive 50 miles to go see an unexpected patient.

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to remember how it is out in the field

    Pros

    You set your own schedule.

    Cons

    The company will change your schedule and not tell you. If they don't get paper work by the time they decide to close payroll then you do not get paid for the full amount of time you put in on that week but it will be on the next check. The office manager is also very disorganized.

    Advice to Management

    You need to get your stuff together. It is very concerning when people count on their job to pay them for the work that they did that week and be shorted on their check.

    Pros

    Processes and policies are in place to guide you and make your agency successful on a corporate level.

    Cons

    Benefits are expensive, cannot afford to put whole family on plan. Perks are available but delayed regularily and when obtained seem to be accompanied by internal audits so that is no longer the case. Little to no support from mid level regional managers, tools are not provided to grow business as expected at the local level

    Advice to Management

    If turnover rate for DPS's is so high and a focus then look at what support you are giving them at the local level. Do they have the AE/PCL that they need to be able to grow the business?

    Pros

    Office staff seems to care enough about clients being taken care of.

    Cons

    Employees almost never get up to full time hours, no such thing as reviews, raises, etc. Travel time is only counted as payable if you travel for half an hour or less, so if you travel for 35-45 minutes in-between clients, you won't get paid for it. Overall, this is not a position for someone trying to maintain a household - you just can't live off of 20 hours a week at $8 an hour.

    Pros

    My manager was great and the support staff I had made my job enjoyable. If you are out there promising things to customers that you cant deliver on you wont make it. Fortunately for me I had a team behind me who could

    Cons

    over the years, there was change in management. management should sometimes stick to whats working.

    Advice to Management

    make your sales meetings informational, helpful and fun...they really started declining over the years and made us feel underappreciated, and bored.
