I have been working at Advantage Solutions full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

ASM provided a great opportunity to work with a great product lineup in a positive, potentially stimulating work environment that provided challenges and great relationship building opportunities.

Cons

Lack of management experience in creating specific account relationships created a tense, adversarial environment that led to deception and unfulfilled expectations.

Advice to Management

Understand the relationship dynamics between accounts so that all involved have complete buy-in and understand the objectives of the sales floor to create a successful positive work environment.

    I worked at Advantage Solutions full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great people, World Class Clients

    Cons

    Work loads are overwhelming. More for less. Arrogance in many levels of management.

    Advice to Management

    The employees are where you need to focus. The clients can see that they are overwhelmed. It will be too late to change when the Client resigns and goes to your competitor.
