    Pros

    I love my job! I have performed this work for 10 plus years so I enjoy it and I think I am fairly good at it. I enjoy the freedom to run my own shop without being micromanaged to death!

    Cons

    Regional management is hit and miss! The ones I met have no interest in supporting the Director, management or staff! They only want to line there pockets with your bonus money, do nothing and throw you under the bus at the first opportunity !

    Advice to Management

    Find an accountability measure for your regional managers! By no means do I mean make them into micromanagers but please provide support.
