    Former Employee - Area Manager in Allentown, PA

    Pros

    Fast paced, day goes by quickly. Freedom to run area as you see fit. Senior management receptive to suggestions and changes. Good associates.

    Cons

    No work/life balance. Short sighted at times as the push for continuous improvement doesn't allow for systems to become established and work. Difficult to remove under-performing employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't rely so much on the Pathways Program.
