Pros

Flexible schedule, fair compensation, great benefits, qualified colleagues, great people in the company, product works for clients if properly executed, industry leader, excellent tools (too many?)

Cons

Upper management is out of touch with associates, many poorly thought out and overly corporate initiatives while laying off quality support staff, simplification initiatives taking too long

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Let your associates do what you hire them to do - SELL. The more roadblocks put in the way and the more pedantic tasks, the less they are able to get done. Rather than worrying about percentages, worry about work ethic, as that is the deciding factor in sales.

    Great for work life balance, but doesn't have opportunities available for growing employees.

    Pros

    Valassis has a unique culture that is hard to find in the corporate world. It's a laid back atmosphere, where employees are allowed to think for themselves. If you're looking for work/life balance, Valassis is the place to be. Their flex time is great, which I personally took advantage of and you rarely have to work overtime.

    Cons

    -Little to no growth in the industry
    -Not a lot of new job opportunities were available to grow in
    -Pay not the most competitive (but relative to hrs worked-good)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your employees. The best solutions are found by the people who work with it every day.
