Pros

Home of Snuggie and Topsy Turvy planters. The AsSeenOnTV industry is fast paced and ever changing. The company develops and markets many new products a year. It's anything but ordinary. The direct response side of the business is a great place to get some experience and then move on.

Cons

Some executives speak poorly and inappropriately about employees behind their back. Unqualified personnel have been promoted for 'loyalty' vs. real contributions to the organization. Critique the wrong people and processes and your time is limited.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Great products may drive success that hides serious operational and managerial weaknesses. Significant restructuring was instituted and if the expected results are not achieved those leading the change and the changes themselves should be re-evaluated and personnel should be reassigned to roles more in-line with their skill set.

    Pros

    The people, great collaborative environment. If you are hardworking and talented you can do well here and be recognized for it. DRTV is a fast paced and exciting environment and enables you to cut your chops on many types of products and apply diverse marketing techniques.

    Cons

    The number of projects and responsibilities at a given time and the fast paced environment may not be a fit for everyone. Recognizing and the ability to prioritize is critical.

    Pros

    This is a great place if you can land an entry level job. You will get a well rounded business education that can be applied to any future career.

    Cons

    Very little room for advancement. Will take you forever to get a promotion, but that is why I say it's a good entry level opportunity. Stay two years and best move on.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop letting "the owners" call the shots. The company's reputation is not what it used to be.
