Current Employee - Customer Sales Representative

I have been working at Schwan's full-time (more than 8 years)

Pros

Independence, paid car usage, reasonably good commissions, decent benefits

Cons

Long hours, minimal effort to address work-life balance, lack of strategic planning, terrible internal communication, definite lack of advancement opportunity.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Better communication is needed at all levels.
A clear strategic plan to guide the company for more than the next quarter would help.
Some sort of plan for career advancement is needed (and sorely lacking.)

    Focus on a few new products a year and market them correctly before you roll out. Too many products rolled out unsuccessfully over the years.
