    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    The atmosphere is amazing. Everyday I would go to work excited to meet with my team members as it was a very family like environment. Also, it was very fast paced keeping myself entertained the whole time

    Cons

    I noticed many employees come in that took a while to really get started. Late to get computer access and access to company applications. I saw someone wait 2 weeks with no laptop.

    Advice to Management

    I believe that management did a very good job once the on-boarding process was completed. However, the start-up was a little hesitant and slow.

    Pros

    Be your own boss and make your own hours. Get to meet and help and encourage women everyday.

    Cons

    Managers and Leaders are not working together. Lead share program and Incentives are only growing upper Leaders. New Leaders and new Representatives need better support..

    Advice to Management

    Stop only listening to Upper Leaders. And take a look at what Those same leaders are saying to the average representative on Social Media, very discouraging. Give Average Leaders and Representatives a voice.
