Pros

Nice offices, free lunch, proper tools to get job done.

Cons

Over promote from withing, many senior managers promoted past level of competence. Promote from within policy leads to many individuals becoming managers of functional areas in which they have no practical experience.

    Pros

    Sink or swim mentality. Given exact same responsibilities as a full-time employee. No coffee runs, making copies etc. Provides amazing sales and account management experience from the get-go

    Cons

    100% commission compensation structure. Employees tend to get burnt out

    Advice to Management

    It is a very hard industry to start out in. Try to foster the growth of the interns more.

    Pros

    Long Term Views
    Ethical
    Environment where work and effort are rewarded
    Great Work Life Balance
    Family Oriented

    Cons

    The company has some growing pains. They also are not fully utilzing their field force for leadership opportunities or growth. There is such a distance between the field force and the corporate folks it has become difficult to bridge.

    Advice to Management

    Keep Up the Good Work.
    You have plenty of leaders in the field force that you are not utilizing.
