Excellent corporate model, but regional growth potential may ultimately be limited by ineffective mid-level management.

Pros

Sr. Mgmt has created a phenomenal business model that is well positioned for lateral sustainability and long-term growth.

Cons

Poor communication consisting of interoffice politicking, and a complete lack of mutual employee respect. Mid-level management does not possess the vision necessary for successful execution of the corporate model; and consistently makes poor directional decisions based on inaccurate and unconfirmed data. The induction / orientation program is relatively non-existent with the trainer admitting she had no experience training this position. The comp plan is also highly inconsistent with the expectations of the position, or the demand of the market.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Take a strong look at the leadership in your Seattle market.

    Pros

    none that I can think of except they have nice centers

    Cons

    Toxic work environment. As one poster said above, there is serious anger management issues in upper managment. I think this starts at the CEO/VP level and trickles down. There is unreasonable pressure and micro managment. Lack of trust in employees.
    If you interview here, be prewarned, it seems nice on the outside but is a boiler room on the inside. Serious lack of class in this place. Cheesy/tacky sales tactics.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop micro managing and trust your employees. Stop focusing on the wrong things in operations and focus on actual sales. Stop giving too much administrative work for us to do so we can go out and actually get business done!

    Pros

    benefits are good, growing company (so they say)

    Cons

    pay levels are below standard for each position. "Micro" managing is at a level that is completely impossible to keep up with their demands, especially in a sales position. Like another person said below, they want robots not employees.
     Higher level management is unethical and send mix signals constantly to their teams. There seems to be anger management issues in this company when sales goals are not met and they come down on you in a very personal way. Run, dont walk...away from this company. They SAY they are growing which maybe they are but if they keep scaring off employees at this rate, there will be nothing left. This is a very hostile place to work!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Realize that your employees are only human and dont jump all over them personally because of one thing they did wrong. Be tactful and NICE and SUPPORTIVE to your employees and maybe they will stay around longer. Your company is not EVER going to grow with the attitude that is currently in this company. People are your most valuable asset!
