    Pros

    9-5, good benefits, week off for Christmas. Managers are supportive

    Cons

    Delegate sales dept. is looked upon differently than all the others. Only put in as much as you'll get out. This is a good stepping stone job or one to simply hold you over until a better one shows up. Not much room to grow, if any.

    Pros

    The people you get to work with are excellent.
    Job Opportunity is good
    Summer Fridays & Christmas shutdown

    Cons

    CEO is very emotional; shows favoritism and is self centered. Certain divisions get special treatment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    To the CEO: Stop showing favoritism; care about & listen to all employees; stop centering everything around you. The company will continue to lose good people if you don't change.

    Pros

    Summer hours, every friday you are able to to leave work at 1pm.

    Cons

    Favoritism.All the staff are phony and love to gossip about the employees behind their back Management does not appreciate conscientious employees. They prefer brown nosers and drunks.
    In terms of commission, you will have.to still be employed at the time events are launched. If you leave or are.fired you will not be able to collect your commission eventhough you worked on it.

    Pros

    It's 9-5 and you don't have to do much work to get by.

    Cons

    Leadership that has yet to realize it's 2014. You can't yell and scream at your staff. You can't have a work environment with no training, no career advancement and very little opportunity to earn money (if you are junior staff) and expect people to want to work there. No transparency, no communication and overall just a dismal place to work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Act like management, not a bunch of bickering children!

    Pros

    Met some nice co-workers over there

    Cons

    Systems and mentality was antiquated, the hurdles for success were unreachable for most everyone so the extra compensation possibilities were basically non-existent unless you were on the best programs, leaders don't seem to care

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Care about growing employees, don't put people in a financial deficits for potential bonuses, be more transparent on financial performance, invest in better computers, bring in better leadership

    Pros

    Summer Fridays and Christmas week off. People you work with. You're all in the same horrible boat together.

    Cons

    Despite the CEO trying to give perks of summer Fridays and good hours, it will never out weight the fact this company is the worst company out there. If you're thinking about taking a job here, run away. Run fast away. Everyone here is miserable. The upper management is horrendous and you're forced to be held to unrealistic expectations that are beyond your control. The company outlook is horrible. Everything is declining, attendees and sales. Which makes a very hostile work environment. Everyone can tell the ship is sinking so get out whole you can. And don't board the titanic! Look elsewhere for employment. It's not worth your time, aggravation or sanity!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn to adapt to the times. Find other ways to stay competitive or you're going to loose your market share perminately. Treat your employees with respect. Senior management has no idea how to speak to employees. Instead they talk to them like they are dirt. And expect them to be happy to do work for them. Change the company culture.

    Pros

    You get to leave at 5:00 most of the time. The people are great. Good benefits.

    Cons

    It's hard to move up in the company. If you want to learn anything you have to learn it on your own. Low pay! Low morale in the company. You have to be ready to figure out things on your own. Poor communication throughout the company.
