Pros

Home of Snuggie and Topsy Turvy planters. The AsSeenOnTV industry is fast paced and ever changing. The company develops and markets many new products a year. It's anything but ordinary. The direct response side of the business is a great place to get some experience and then move on.

Cons

Some executives speak poorly and inappropriately about employees behind their back. Unqualified personnel have been promoted for 'loyalty' vs. real contributions to the organization. Critique the wrong people and processes and your time is limited.

Advice to Management

Great products may drive success that hides serious operational and managerial weaknesses. Significant restructuring was instituted and if the expected results are not achieved those leading the change and the changes themselves should be re-evaluated and personnel should be reassigned to roles more in-line with their skill set.

    I have been working at Allstar Products Group full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Open door, flexibility, management and the ability to do different things. The fact that there is always someone there to help you if you need it is great.

    Cons

    The only con that I see is that promotions don't happen right away. I guess every company is different and everyone develops at a different pace

    Advice to Management

    I think giving importance to employees helps with retention and productivity

    I worked at Allstar Products Group (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    If you are looking to gain work experience, there can be plenty potential to move throughout the company. Especially if you are brought on to assist multiple departments and/or managers. Being able to try out and acquire products is a plus.

    Cons

    Some of the managers are disrespectful to the employees. Upper management does nothing about it even when it's brought to their attention. Company is constantly looking for ways to save money which equates to a layoffs.

    Advice to Management

    Be more involved in what your managers are doing and how they're treating their peers and assistants. Managers should be held accountable for their actions especially when it comes to how they treat their assistants/employees.
