    Pros

    I had the best manager hands down --she was able to leverage my strengths and opportunities. Very inspiring leader and am lucky to have had the chance to work for her. Company overall puts importance on their people and does a great job recognizing hard work. Allows good work/life balance.

    Cons

    Takes a long time to make decisions. Does not adapt to the changing consumer market quickly.

    Advice to Management

    Continue honoring your people! Continue investing in them but also know when to cut ties. A lot of tenured associates who should not be working there.

    I worked at DFS Group full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Salary plus commission structure. It is dependent upon tourism activity primarily, but commissions are reasonably consistent, at least as best as can be expected.

    Cons

    Any world event that is likely to result in a downturn in tourism will obviously affect your income here. This is an excellent place to work, but you'd be better suited if your spouse is the real breadwinner or has a more stable job.

    Advice to Management

    Very much enjoyed my time with DFS - keep up the good work to keep this a well-oiled machine and continue developing your people with your commitment to training and development.

    Pros

    Good company to work for with great room to advance and grow. You'll be able to learn about the business especially in a luxury selling environment.

    Cons

    Work life balance may be an issue when working in a highly touristed location that runs 365 days a year.
