    Pros

    Location in downtown Fort Lauderdale
    Half day off day before a holiday

    Cons

    Top management flies around in corporate jets and stay at over priced hotels while everyone else is cost-cut to extreme. Middle managers have to fight over a $5 variance in hotel bills.
    Hourly people have to clock in and out. This is a corporation, not a factory.
    Salaries are uneven. You can work hard and get the same lousy 1 to 3% raise or no raise at all every year.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get out of your bubble and try to work within the confines you expect the rest of us to work. Share the wealth a little more.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    get to the bottom of why the top sales specialists are a breed of professional people now gone from the front line!
