    great pay lots of support from regional manager

    Cons

    upper management did not inform employees of financial issues within the company. Within a couple of hours all employees found out the company was closing and we were all terminated

    Advice to Management

    Business is no longer open. I feel money management has a lot to do with the closing

    Pros

    contests, keeping it as fun as it can be to be when working 60 hours a week just dying to get our bonus.

    Cons

    not enough support for certain managers. favoritism based on who could kiss you know what better, cheerleader peppy type of personality encouraged, All women in company can make for a lot of drama.

    Advice to Management

    Don't focus so much on sales to the point where you are constantly threatening peoples jobs for going one month without hitting their bonus. Sales has ups and downs and we shouldn't feel like were going to lose our jobs because of one bad month

    Pros

    Sometimes they would allow you to get a free treatment with the lasers or vela machine.

    Cons

    poor wages, poor benefits, they didn't care about the patients and were only concerned with making the sale, if there were no patients you were either sent home or had to cold call for the duration.

    Advice to Management

    change everything! I've never seen such a complete mismanaged operation with "higher ups" that could care less about their staff.
