    Pros

    None I can remember other then being able to work from my home

    Cons

    - Poor upper management
    - 24/7 Work week
    - Bonuses dangled in front of the managers but impossible to obtain
    - Representatives very mean and would presonally attack
    - Was physically threatened by a representative and when reported to inside management, along with the legal department nothing was done
    - Harrassed by my Divisional Manager and a fellow male District Manager - I didnt file complaint because of know they would do nothing
    - Felt exposed to representatives because they could look up where I lived - not protected like a regular employee that work in the corporate offices
    - Fellow district managers very mean, cut throat and bunch of snakes
    - When redisticting was done my district was disolved and assigned to a new one where representatives, mostly the top leadership, made it their business to personally attack and destroy

    Former Employee - Sales Manager

    Pros

    Good people that care about one another.
    Great products.

    Cons

    Struggling financially.
    Direct selling good but speed of delivery is being hurt by web sales.
    Old systems not able to keep up with new technology.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Upgrade systems. You can't kept cutting costs to become profitable. At some point need to bring in sales to get growth. Stop tying the hands of sales force and changing their priorities every week.
