    Pros

    Free snacks/drinks
    Free product use
    Little to no process
    Good pay
    2 weeks of vacation
    If you work 40+ hours they are good about giving you the time back.

    Cons

    More managers in report chain that workers.
    Middle managers seem to have pet employees that get away with a lot.
    Rex, the founder, said at a company lunch "...Everyone is replaceable.... [and] people who do not like it here should leave".

    That being said there has been a huge turn over in the development organization.
    No jeans
    No work from home
    A lot of nepotism in Sr. management. I think this is ok because its a private company. Rex can do whatever he wants. However if his son is no running the company and all his son friends are holding all the C level spots, there is little to no chance for ordinary employees to hold the highest offices.

    Advice to Management

    Evolve. Get with the times. Focus on important things like employers and distributors, not petty things like not letting people wear jeans.

    Pros

    Good benefits package if you stay long enough to receive it. The company hires temp to perm and has a high turnover.

    Cons

    Management are bullies and have a support team that helps to engage in the behavior. Long-term employees withhold the support, tools and information needed to do the job. Employees are all on edge and constantly fear retaliation. Management prefers to torture people until they leave as opposed to terminating them.

    Advice to Management

    Cultivate the new hires instead of rewarding the bullies. Happy employees are loyal and productive.

    Pros

    benefits are okay. Easy to get in. And, the best reason is it it close by downtown dallas and had easy commute for me to the working area.

    Cons

    Worst Nightmare to work at. Had Piles of work. They expect you to do everything while you are new and had 2 senior co-workers who make the job terrible.

    Advice to Management

    Evaluate the employee with the work they do but not with words they speak. Some employee had just a mouth to speak. And, keep on talking without letting others to work.

    Pros

    Great for sales people that want to build a network to sell stuff, great business model in that way that it's not going to go under

    Cons

    I am an actual employee that work to produce the products for people to consume. Management trend to underpay and rely heavily on outside stuffing agency,this led to extremely high turnover rate on the production floor, with many inexperienced employees making mistake and slowing down the process. Low morale among workers with repetitive tasks and long hours of manual labor.

    Advice to Management

    Realize your employees are your resources to success.
