    Pros

    Incentives for managers were good at one time. Freedom to work from home as needed.

    Cons

    Poor management. In the 2 years I was a DSM, they went through six managers in the Division Manager position right above me. Constant change in directives. Unethical behavior silently condoned.

    Advice to Management

    When managers are caught in unethical behavior, they need to be immediately terminated. It is very demotivating to watch managers be retained as long as they hit their numbers, no matter what they do to hit them.

  2. A great company that accelerates personal growth and empowerment.

    Pros

    Make your own hours
    Set your own goals
    Run your own business
    Leadership is geared towards helping you advance

    Cons

    Sometimes leadership is not well versed with using the website or answering questions about things like returns or technical issues. Customer service is outsourced and operators sometimes do not understand the question being asked, and have at times given the wrong answer.

    Advice to Management

    Don't outsource customer service, and make sure that representatives are trained to ask leading questions if they are not certain about the question being asked.
