    I have been working at Oakam full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Great staff. Really good people to work with in my experience.

    Cons

    Company has an unclear marketing plan meaning the bulk of new business generation does fall on individual stores to manage. This is a problem as the company is extremely target orientated.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have a clear and effective central marketing plan that allows stores to focus on customer service.
