Terrible management, does not value people.

Store Manager (Current Employee)

ProsThe company makes a good product that has many benefits for consumers. The hours are flexible and you don't have to take your work home with you very often. There really is a need for this product, which makes selling it fairly gratifying.

ConsThe pay is absolutely terrible, an average manager will make around $30,000 and a great store manager will earn around $50,000. The companies upper management has changed for the worse over the last year or so. In order to be promoted you need to be "in" with the new crowd. With this new management came a new belief that the people don't really matter to the companies success. They truly feel that they have a product that can sell itself and the people are expendable. They have therefore slashed the pay of the store managers, and sales people. This philosophy has gotten them into some pretty terrible times as turnover increases and the quality of the sale force decreases. The upper management is completely over matched, especially at the regional vice president level and above. Of course because of this mismanagement the market manager level is decreasing as is the talent at the store manager level. In other words the company is in a death spiral and imploding onto itself.

Advice to Senior ManagementPlease change the retail VP and the regional VP's who work under her. How long does it take to realize that a hiring mistake was made and needs to be fixed.

Realize that your product is difficult to sell and it requires talented people to sell it. Your philosophy needs to stop being so product focused and become more people focused. For your company to succeed you need great people, the product will fail on its own.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
