    Pros

    Great Benefits, friendly employees. Nice working environment with up to date equipment.

    Cons

    There are some truly TOXIC employees in senior management. At times it feels like I'm back in junior high. Our director encourages employees to "rat" each other out and will often stomp around the office screaming at people. Management should have no say in who you eat lunch with, criticize you for stepping away from your desk to use the restroom, or ask you to spy on their peers. High turnover makes it difficult to build good work teams. IT is very chaotic.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Realize that some employees are detrimental to the success of the company. Fear and intimidation are not good ways to motivate your staff. If a manager cannot keep their staff for more than 5-6 months at a time, perhaps there is a problem with the manager.

  2. Poorly trained consultant

    I have been working at Pampered Chef as a contractor (less than a year)

    Pros

    Work as much as you want (if you can get bookings) or as little as you want and get a nice check for very little work.

    Cons

    No support. My training consisted of a single joint show and a lot of unanswered questions. I am sure there are great senior consultants who train their recruits - I was recruited under a consultant with no experience at this.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The home office has been great and they provide a lot of resources. I feel there should be mandatory training for consultants recruiting others. A new consultant has a qualifying period, the recruiter should have certain lessons to teach them during that.
