Pros

Cons

Working in holidays, transfers without your input, the company has become more sales driven. The company seems to put a lot of pressure on its employees to meet several goals that sometime are not realistic and can be very annoying and irritating to the customers.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Is to learn your employees habits, good and bad. Discipline accordingly. Bring the company back to the family -oriented company that it use to be and not so sales driven and impersonal.
