Pros

Very good benefits are offered. Decent commission opportunities-not as good as in the past. They offer a very good product to sell.

Cons

No work/personal life balance. Retail hours are long everyday of the week. Special friends are given favors for promotions. Questionable employee relationships were ignored.

Advice to Management

Continue to listen to the customers and make more customer friendly policies. Do not cut commissions down too much because you will lose valuable employees.

    Pros

    Great Benefits, 8k in tuition benefits; 401k solid matching; profit sharing and bonus.

    Cons

    Management, supervisors and AD level are poor

    Advice to Management

    Address the troublesome employees instead of trying to put a bandage on everyone. Get rid of the slackers and reward the workers.


  2. Good pay, no life outside of work.

    Pros

    Good compensation, good benefits. Lots of opportunities for advancement or lateral moves to other areas of company. Good paying jobs in retail, especially in more rural areas.

    Cons

    The higher you go, less opportunity to use accumulated vacation, even if you have a large amount due to tenure. Work/life balance needs work, especially in the retail channel. Changes in commission and compensation structure often changes, meaning huge pay cuts to sales force, but other channels not effected equally. Constant "stretch" goals being set as expectations.

    Advice to Management

    Be more honest, tell us the reasons why changes are necessary or being made, don't just spend all the time singing the company tune.
