    Pros

    Positive Team members supporting you every step of the way.
    Working from home.
    Ability to make a lot of money, it's all up to you and what you put into it.

    Cons

    You may need to take a pay cut in the beginning during the ramp up period, but if you take ownership and work hard, you can make some great money!

    I worked at A Place for Mom full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Full benefits including long term care insurance, no pension but there is a 401 K with a small company match

    Cons

    This company is metrics crazy and has created many layers of management to monitor them; it is very stressful and distracting to the job of selling a valuable service to families; must work evenings, holidays and weekends; there is no career path for advisors

    Advice to Management

    focus on a few KPI's and let your advisors sell

    Pros

    Good work/life balance.
    Organization continues to grow with consumer needs.
    Beautiful view from corporate office

    Cons

    After working for APFM for 3 1/2 years my supervisor did not acknowledge my last day. I gave a lot of myself to the company and position, so this was hurtful. This speaks volumes about my supervisor.
    Cut bonuses this year.

    Advice to Management

    Require annual Manager training.
    Top leadership should spend more time in the field with employees to better understand what is really happening and needed.

    Pros

    I came to APFM looking for real work/life balance, and I definitely found it. Coworkers are smart and genuine. Senior management trusts employees and doesn't micromanage. Compensation is fair, and it's refreshing to be part of a company that helps so many. Working here has reinforced how unprofessional and stressful my last few jobs have been.

    Cons

    None so far. Have only been here a few months, but no complaints! I truly enjoy working here.
