The first 4 years were great with a lot of opportunity and class, the last five years were completely the opposite.

ProsGreat product Beautyrest, ComforPedic etc.
Decent pay if you hit your bonuses.
Great distribution base for product lines.
Competitive advantages over competition with the solid history and products.

ConsAll downsides of working in sales for Simmons come from the management of the Mountain Central District. So if you are working in other districts it could be a great job. If you are unlucky enough to be in the MCD then get ready to have no leadership, all accountability with no objective views to things within your realm of influence. You will get no credit, no respect and no help.

Advice to Senior ManagementI recommend that if you want to stop losing good people and replacing them with people that have no experience. Then a hard look should be taken at the power and control that are given to the VP over the districts, where they are making decisions that are not in the best interest of the Simmons company or their retailers on any level.
