    Pros

    Building your own customer base with the trust from upper management to drive your own decision making. Given the freedom to go as far as you want in the company based on the hard work you contribute, and not having to depend on others to get you there.

    Cons

    I have been with the company for almost 2,years and I have yet to find one. Let you know if I do.

    Advice to Management

    If it aint broken, don't fix it.

    Pros

    Sometimes you can manage your own schedule.

    Cons

    Work is pretty brutal.

    Advice to Management

    You won't hang on to good people, just the ones you can fool into staying on board. Need to separate sales from service.

    Cons

    Company benefits are less every year.
    Only some positions have advancement opportunities.

    Pros

    Excellent company to work for - very positive, professional, supportive environment. Encouraging of employees to continue to learn, grow and develop, and provides a mentor program and other opportunities for self-motivated individuals to take advantage of.

    Cons

    It is difficult to move between departments, specifically from entry-level positions (ex: customer service) into professional/management roles. Often need to leave the company for outside experience and come back to move up.
