    Pros

    Great pto, esop and pretty good benefits for the industry.

    Cons

    The nature of the work can be demanding. Nearly every job works to a deadline which can be a juggle in the busy season. The pay could be better. But it could be worse.

    Pros

    You make your schedule weekly and as a part time representative there's even more flexibility than a full time representative.

    Cons

    Incestuous company, no growth unless you play the politics, work is not worth the pay, department is full of double standards and hypocrisy, and the drama is never ending since the department is young.

    Advice to Management

    Care more about your employees instead of asking for advice on how to change and then ignoring it throughout the years. Realize the policies are meant to be followed but life is unpredictable and you have to use your judgement instead of referring to errors on paper that don't always apply.

    Pros

    The highest leadership at the company have wonderful ethics, which makes you proud to work there.

    Cons

    It's very hard to get promoted unless you are in sales. They hire a lot of people in as VPs, especially in FreemanXP, and there are fewer worker-bees.

    Advice to Management

    Have promotion opportunities within the company.

    Pros

    Biggest company in the industry. Lots of various opportunities. Company is heading in a good direction on the steady rise. Never a dull moment as there is lots of work to go around for whatever team you join and then some.

    Cons

    So much work that it just get piled and piled on. Pushed to some mental breaking points with workloads. Accountability and mishaps tend to go unnoticed because of the constant stream of work coming in no one has time to improve upon the processes. The few changes that come only tend to add more red tap to those at the bottom and allow more free time to those that already work little.

    Advice to Management

    Be wary of the burnout ratio and where it is happening. If one area has constant burnout, you would think that would be an area of focus over others. Those in productions and logistics are just as important as the members on the sales team. There is too much favoritism towards sales.
