Pros

Some regions operate like a family, they make sure that all of their people are in a position to succeed.
- Benefits
- Car
- People (Excluding Denver Team)
- Bonus
- Training

Cons

These were my negative experiences working with the Denver Region:
- No coaching
- No positive feedback
- Minimal Development
- Incompetent Upper Management
- Unrealistic Expectations from Upper Management
- Have to be 100% mobile for promotions
- Rule by fear
- Micro-managing
- (3 AM's in 3 months quit in 2011)

Advice to Management

Take a look at some of the people you have in Region Director and Senior Management positions. My experience in other regions was much more positive than in Denver.

    Listen to employees at the bottom of the company, show loyalty and place them in a position to succeed and win.
