    Great company to work for if you're working at the corporate office and not in the field.

    Pros

    If you work at their corporate headquarters, then it's a phenomenal company for which to work; however, outside field sales, I think they're lacking in quality in their senior management.

    Cons

    Outside field sales, I think they're lacking in quality in their senior management.

    Pros

    Flexiblity in getting work done. Good people to work with but senior management is not in touch with realtiy or the market.

    Cons

    Management is down right stupid. Bad decisions. They only want profit and don't care about building share. Bonuses are share based.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look at what the competition is doing!!! TV advertisting is killing us. Get in touch with what is happening in the market and see what the competition is doing.
