Big and financially strong company.

Continue to eliminate the dead wood but not at the expense of the talented employees.

    Pros

    pretty solid earnings potential if you are good at sales. You don't have to take your work home with you.

    Cons

    zero freedom, seemingly endless calls throughout the day. Sales goals can be quite lofty and unattainable.

    Pros

    Competitive salary and benefits, reward programs, great customers.

    Cons

    Treats employees very badly, with a 'guilty until proven innocent' attitude. Employees are micro managed with cameras, gps, computer systems, etc. Stops for bathrooms must be explained. If an accident occurs, the driver is always at fault, even if the police report states there was no fault on the driver, and you will be fired.

    Advice to Management

    Treat the employees with respect, instead of like common criminals.
