    Pros

    Fast environment. You have the ability to learn a vast amount of information in a small amount of time.

    Pros

    Excellent opportunities for personal development, learning etc. Benefits were good, dependent care FSA is nice to have as well.

    Cons

    No real days off, constant contact with facility. No real opportunity to advance corporate wise, unless you want to move to Atlanta. Additionally, moving within the company limited your pay, it would be better to leave and come back to get a significant pay boost.

    Advice to Management

    Look to promote those who haven't been in the system their whole life, it will bring new perspectives.

    Flexible schedule, car reimbursement, team events, a job to jumpstart your career and put on your resume, and good health benefits.

    Cons

    Pay isn't enough for what we have to do, VERY few job advancement opportunities, corrupt upper management and weird sales goals

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention to which district sales managers have had so many people quit on their team. It usually means there is something going on. also, even if there aren't job promotions available at least give people a different title and a pay raise to make them feel like they are moving up in the company.
