    Upper Management indecisive.
    Upper Management afraid to make decisions less they be held accountable

    Overthinking the negative.

    Advice to Management

    Once you reach a Leadership role, it's time to take charge not avoid it.
    Go back to Merit based compensation vs. merely talking about.
    Promoting only "yes men/women" can't help you hurdle obstacles long term.
    Trust your mid-level management team. They "Are on the Front line"

    Former Employee - District Sales Leader
    Doesn't Recommend
    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    You learn to multi-task like a pro (or better yet, you're forced to.)
    Great benefits package.
    Worked with some great people.
    Learned many facets of business: HR, safety, finance, operations, etc.
    Promotes diversity.

    Cons

    Upper management makes their own rules when it comes to promotions yet preaches the opposite.
    Rarely recognized by management for contributions or above and beyond performance.
    Senior Leadership has no clue as to what really happens at district level.
    Unrealistic goals and expectations.
    Motivation by fear.
    Cookie cutter style of how the market should look is killing morale, motivation, and the ability for RSRs to maximize pay along with increasing unsaleables/waste but waste budgets keep getting smaller and smaller.
    DSLs are now safety, HR, and finance managers instead of being sales managers yet they are bonused on sales.
    Worked with or for completely inept people that were promoted simply because they were "diverse."

    Advice to Management

    Get off you high horse and know what's actually happening at street level within your company. You'll never figure out why sales figures are down or not to expectation if you don't see it with you own eyes. Most lower level employees have a very bad image of most of you because they feel you sit in your ivory palace and dictate orders. Do you not understand that we can put all of the product out there in the world but you can't make a consumer buy it? Sure we could keep trying to put more out but then we'd get in trouble for our unsaleables.
