    I worked at Chamberlain Group full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Competitive pay; good bonus opportunity; excellent employee perks including onsite gym and locker rooms, onsite cafe, sponsored sports teams, education/tuition support programs, good healthcare

    Cons

    Very recently they reorganized and cut a significant number of people despite having banner year in 2018; company is changing strategic direction in a way that seems to be colder and less employee-friendly than in the past. New leadership is changing the way things are done and not always in a good way.

    Advice to Management

    Be careful not to take things for granted, especially the good will of the customer base and the positive attitude of your employees.

    Listen to your sales staff more often as they are passing along important industry info and wants from the dealer base. Pay your sales reps at a more appropriate amount and incentivize them for larger than expected growth amounts.
