    I worked at Advantage Solutions part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    If you have never worked as a Brand Ambassador and are looking to build up your resume then it's not a bad start

    Cons

    Poor pay, lack of leadership, inability to get supplies to BAs, questionable business practices (I was shorted commissions). Now on the lower end of the pay scale for BAs.

    Advice to Management

    Realize that your business is built around Brand Ambassadors. Without them, you don't have much of a company. You've driven off most of the good ones already so I would say that you really don't have much of a company. You're trying to overtake the industry through mergers and acquisitions and being awarded contracts via low bids but eventually your clients are going to ask: "Where are the sales?" and then the roof will cave in
