    Pros

    Profitable, global business. Smart, motivated staff for the most part. If you fit in, your bonus can be very healthy.

    Cons

    Difficult management group/structure to navigate. Lack of resources in the operating groups (very top heavy in Corporate office). Lack of upward mobility unless you are a "yes" person. If asked to think outside the box or do something new & creative, don't bother....because old ways die hard at DFS.

    Advice to Management

    Time to start truly thinking about positioning the business for the future.

    Pros

    Salary plus commission structure. It is dependent upon tourism activity primarily, but commissions are reasonably consistent, at least as best as can be expected.

    Cons

    Any world event that is likely to result in a downturn in tourism will obviously affect your income here. This is an excellent place to work, but you'd be better suited if your spouse is the real breadwinner or has a more stable job.

    Advice to Management

    Very much enjoyed my time with DFS - keep up the good work to keep this a well-oiled machine and continue developing your people with your commitment to training and development.

    Pros

    easy, great pay, benefits, flexiable, opportunity to advance, gifts, incentives, bonuses. overall you will learn and be rewarded on top of pay. i am happy with working here.

    Cons

    little training so you will basically teach yourself until you attend certain vendor trainings, also it gets pretty unorganized with how we work on the floor and what we have to offer customer

    Advice to Management

    work out certain kinks with boosting productivity.
