    Pros

    Good work and life balance. Used to be a great place to work

    Cons

    Multiple layoffs resulted in lack of trust between employees and senior management. Senior management can be rude to lower level employees and reprimand in front of others.

    Advice to Management

    Treat everyone with respect. We are all the same regardless of level.

    Pros

    Good work life balance, decent pay, great talent in the District Sales Manager level, great products to promote and sell, fun work environment

    Cons

    Company is falling apart due to the fact that they cannot go to where the customers are---customers shop online and that is where they fail to focus product promotion, sales tactics, advertising, etc.

    Advice to Management

    Should have listened more to the field managers doing the work instead of who you decided to put your full support into.

    Choose a business plan and stick with it.
