I have been working at Advantage Solutions full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

The ACE program is the perfect way to gain experience working in the CPG industry. The position involves work in all aspects of the business - from retail to sales call meetings. It is a wonderful way to get an overview of the company as a whole. Meeting with top level executives gives you the opportunity to get your name out there. It is evident how important the top level executives see us post graduates as.

Cons

The job description for the ACE program is not thoroughly explained. You are left guessing as to what the job truly consists of.

Advice to Management

Focus more on lower level employees. They are an important asset to the company, but not looked after as much as the top level employees.

    Pros

    If you have a question, no body turns you away and just dives in to help solve the issue. This environment is pace faced, and it never dull. You will never look for something to do, because you will always have something to do. You have every opportunity to learn every aspect of this company, as well as apply this knowledge in real life settings.

    Cons

    Sometimes having to much to do is a bad thing, because you can't focus on the little details.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work and always try to teach your employees something new!

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

    Pros

    1.) Genuine care and investment in the future success of all employees.
    2.) One-on-One interaction. Even between the executive level and entry level. (Will not find that at most corporations exceeding 30,000 employees.)
    3.) Comprehensive and Competitive Benefits package.
    4.) Endless job opportunities.
    5.) Very high potential for career advancement.

    Cons

    1.) Communication between related divisions of the company could be somewhat better. Example: Business Development and Retail Operations. A lot of times Business Development is unaware of Retail Execution Drives/Sales Blitz dealing with clients they represent. In turn this causes problems for both sides (especially for entry level Retail Sales Merchandisers.)

    2.) Employees in retail could receive a LITTLE better benefits in the form of commission or bonus. Currently not a single employee, regardless of position receives commission. EVERYONE IS SALARIED which is a good thing because your consistenty guaranteed pay. However after a certain time frame, or depending on the position/advancement bonus's and benefits become better. All in all entry level benefits could be somewhat better.

    Advice to Management

    None.
