Pros

Flexibility, Freedom, Team atmosphere, company vehicle, good stepping stone position to gain experience

Cons

disconnect between upper level management and lower level management, only promote the very best

Advice to Management

Some customer promotions/programs seem like an initiative to boost sales with a sense of urgency or desperation towards the end of a fiscal quarter

    Have a little more control over the branch managers so as promotions are based more on actual work done vs. who gets friendly.
