    Leadership at the top is Horrible

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Dayton, OH

    ProsOnly good thing I can say is that "The campus where I work is awesome and the people are great" but when it comes to the company, just horrible.

    ConsWork life balance, what a joke.. 60 hours a week and made to feel you need to give more..

    Advice to Senior ManagementGet someone who cares about people and not the numbers. Really feel the senior director discriminates and is a bully.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Sales Career

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsWork from home so there is a lot of freedom with the schedule. You are essentially your own boss, which of course has its benefits. Competitive salary, company vehicle/phone/laptop. Gas card and corporate card.

    ConsEssentially zero training. They give you a number to hit and that is it.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTrain your employees.

    This is an awesome company to work for with a lot of growth opportunities

    Coat Check (Former Employee)
    Chicago, IL

    ProsVery relax laid back atmosphere,but fun and exciting as we'll.The perks don't hurt either ie: the food,flowers etc that can be taken home are just icing on the so so sweet cake!!

    ConsTo me there were not many cons,maybe the lack of team work that is needed when it's time to break down after the parties are over.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThere should be more incintives to stay overtime because you are required to work well after your schedule "off" time with no extra pay and that break down is not easy or fast kinda work.
