I worked at FTD full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Work from home environment, and working with local florists, who are the hardest working people I have ever met. You get to be very close with them, and involved in their lives, and feel a great deal of satisfaction in trying to help their business become better.

The money was good for the job responsibilities you have.

Cons

The has been a lot of senior management turnover, and thus, the direction and focus of the company keeps changing. They say they are a partner of the local florist, but they really are not. There is so much politics involved here that it makes it hard to do your job and maintain any sense of integrity.

The company is not growing, so there is very limited career advancement opportunities.

    I worked at FTD full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    There are some very talented people scattered throughout the company that work very hard and understand the meaning of team work.

    Cons

    The Director levels seemed to battle against each other, building fiefdoms and engaging in power struggles without adding any value to the overall portfolio. They are very difficult to work with and for.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Put the egos in check, and start bring leaders and not bosses. Creating a more positive environment to work in, where everyone drives towards common goals would help retain the high level talent that I witnessed leave on a regular basis.
