    Pros

    Money Mailer has a solid team who work together for the common good of the franchise system. The success of the company is directly related to the success of the franchise owners which creates a healthy environment of mutual accountability.

    Cons

    There is a significant amount of competition in this industry which can impact prices and revenue. However, buying the cheapest product does not often bring the best results in the marketing world. The "right" individual in this franchise model can do some incredible things.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to develop and test programs which allow new owners to join the system, ramp up properly and create strong roots for the life of their business.

    Pros

    flex hours and good product for people who like coupons

    Cons

    the boss dose not care about having this place cleaned and the carpets have gone years without carpet cleaning, lets certain employees do what they want, makes you clock out for every time you leave your desk, when you speak to the boss about being sexually harassed he wont listen, he yells at the employees alot and shows lots of favoritism towards his front desk lady, he fires people for stupid reasons and he only cares about what the front desk lady has to say, he even lets her go smoke with out clocking out, i could go on and on about what its like to work for this employer but who will listen, definitly not him

    Advice to Management

    take care of employees better and have more respect for them, stop showing favoritism towards only one person, and when someone says they are being sexually harrassed please listen

    Pros

    I've heard that this was once a great place to work. The building is nice, and these days there's plenty of parking. Oh and you'll have cheap snacks every Thursday.

    Cons

    That last review is such an obvious inside job I just had to add this. I've heard this was once a great place to work, but now it's just awful. Everyone still there is looking to leave or has already left. Good luck to anyone just joining. ..if they're even hiring to replace the people who have left. You'll work your butt off for management that looks down on you, for little pay, and no benefits. You'll stay late and work weekends for bosses and franchisees who don't appreciate you. And then your job will be cut when absurd numbers aren't met while the ceo is telling everyone things are fine.

    Advice to Management

    Just sell the company already so that the healing can start. If that's even possible.

    Pros

    The amazing women that work in this area

    Cons

    Everything else! If you have the art of sitting around collecting a pay check and not hitting your goals... Your a keeper! They NEED people. If your excellent in losing business, talking down to staff and customers, never replying to emails and creating demotivating emails to staff, your eligible for management at the Money Mailer! I could go on an on but most importantly this product is almost impossible to sell, even for the trained professional, and it just doesn't work anymore! WARNING, sales are down no matter what they say even in Houston and we all know Houston is rocking in so many other areas...

    Advice to Management

    Give it up! The reason there is any business at all in this area is because of the ladies that you have had working for you for years, it's a shame though because they are all miserable working for you since you deduct their pay each month because they fall a bit short of goal, yet they are afraid to do anything else because they have been so loyal to you for years!!! If you lost these ladies you'd lose this area! How do I know that, how many sales people have you plowed through trying to get them to stick? Now you can't find anyone crazy enough to even consider any of the positions you have open. You should be ashamed at how you treat good people that have made you millions while you let deadbeats manage!

    Pros

    A great business model for a salesperson. In general, flexibility in working hours and control over how you run the day to day of your business. The new business model isn't necessarily bad, it's just not what most of the current franchisees signed up for. Someone new can do very well coming into the system-they will not be basing any decisions on the history of their business and old habits.

    Cons

    The new management has changed the structiure, so unfortunately we are seeing people not being able to make it in this business. Unreasonable price increases-they call it a "frozen carrot" instead of incentives for doing what they want. Most people buy a franchise to have some control over their own business with the support of the franchisor. This franchisor has changed the rules in the middle of the game for many franchisees.

    Advice to Management

    We need new blood. Gary Mulloy has done many good things for the system, but he's overstayed his welcome. It seems to most franchises that he is posturing the company for sale.

    Pros

    Good place for a beginner to start. Some training which would help beginners to advance.

    Cons

    Locked into 1 or 2 types of ad sizes. Circulation only covers a handful of residents in the selling area. No graphic artist you make the ad that you sell. No credit terms and all 95% of any call in's go to the owner. The owner competes and sells and the commission structure is poor for a person that in in the business as a career. Heavy turn over.

    Advice to Management

    Manage your franchise and help your sales teams to grow. If your sales reps are making a nice income then your personal income would be wonderful. Train, Train but be hands off and allow for mistakes without making the sales rep feel like the world was coming to an end. Open your mind and ears , listen to what your sales teams are saying involve the sales teams to fix whatever is broken. If you have a sales team that believes in the product, feels respected, can make a living, and you give people room to breath... There is nothing that your franchise would not be successful at. Don't be afraid of failure it's part of success. Learn from the events, invest in your people and business. Offer a decent pay and benefit package with ample time off or you will burn your reps out.

    Continue to try and develop new programs to stimulate growth.

    Pros

    The people (non management) are cool, and fun to work with. The company has a good core product, and the quality has improved since the company moved to outsourving.

    Cons

    Management is awful and is only concerned about making money. CEO is a feeble man who has no idea what he's doing

    Advice to Management

    Focus on the long term and stop being so greedy, find a new CEO.
