    Pros

    company growing through acquisitions and mergers

    Cons

    major brands are stagnant in growth and overpriced to competition. independent business operator network allows the supply chain to dictate distribution at shelf. often, consumer never has opportunity to try product due to IBO reluctance to slot items on shelf.

    Advice to Management

    incentivize IBOs on new items, secondary display and plan o gram integrity. True organic growth will be lacking without.

    Pros

    The working hours are exactly the kind of working hours that best suit my lifestyle not to mention the feeling the freedom it gives you versus the feeling of constriction at a centralized workplace.

    Cons

    Don't really foresee the possibility for growth in this company from my stand point. Unless you decide to buy your own Route.

    Advice to Management

    Place More Focus on the people who paid good money to get into this company, who have helped this company grow into the successful company it is today. And I am not talking about the grocery store customers, I'm talking about the RSR's..!

    Pros

    The Pros are the co workers you see / talk to everyday, as long as they are on your level.

    Cons

    Upper Management is only worries about their bonuses and the stockholders. The overall attitude is "do as I say, or else" and lately, "you need to replace that person"

    Advice to Management

    Step back and look what your feet on the street managers are doing daily, a happy, positive out look will result in great sales
