    When the remnants of the company were bought by a venture capitalist firm, any remaining employee lost every cent of what was the employee stock ownership plan

    Pros

    Quality product. Fun product to sell. Flexible hours. Metro selling territory - local. Some of the leads are from people calling in.

    Cons

    Employee stock option plan as retirement plan. - Not vested until year 7. Limits as to when you can remove dollars.

    Advice to Management

    Simplify. Hire people that are knowledgeable in business management in the corporate office. Not all sales districts are equal so recognition and goals should not be even company wide.

    Pros

    Best people I've ever worked with. I love what I do. Safety standards are very high. Employees work well together.

    Cons

    It's seasonal more often then not. Wage freeze no pay raises in 6 yrs.At this time no retirement fund.

    Advice to Management

    Serious lack of communication. Out of touch with employee needs. Need to be more intune with the problems at hand.


  7. Be careful of false promises.

    Pros

    An atmosphere of latitude exists in most areas, which allows one to use the tools they feel necessary to achieve an objective.

    Cons

    That same atmosphere could also be described as being given enough rope to hang yourself. As in most corporate structures, it was rare to find someone to back you when you're not in the majority vote, regardless of how effective your path would have been.

    Advice to Management

    It would benefit the company as a whole if the powers that be, would create objectives with deadlines and then step back and resist the urge to micromanage.
