    Pros

    money, other employees are great.

    Cons

    your just a number. your job is strickly based on what one manager thinks of you. hours can be tough, long hours. cant plan any family time. always being called by manager on your cell phone that you pay for

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    stop the micromanaging, let the rsr have a little say so into what they see on a daily basis. not what you see behind a computer at your desk. Have the managers get out and help their rsr's, and stay off the golf course, cant tell you how many times our manager was at the course while at work.
