    Great products and community involvement

    Poor to unacceptable middle managers who do not care about work/family balance

    Select managers that know how to motivate and inspire employees and NOT someone who had a good sales year!!! Too much emphasis placed on selecting managers based on their high sales results. Sales results has NOTHING to do with managing people!!!!
