    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    fair pay, lovely home office, great product, love the brand, love the people who still are on board, love how it started, love the way we used to be proud of what the company once was.

    Cons

    Way below average ELT (executive Leadership team) no concern for employees, ELT won't tell the truth in spite of claiming to hold the truth and share it.

    Advice to Management

    Please, let folks know we are in the late stages of being absorbed by RJRT! Do you think we don't get it? Live like you pretend to aspire.

    Advice to Management

    Let your Territory Managers do their jobs. Don't apply artificial pressure by "strongly recommending" a certain amount of calls per day. Implement tools that increase transparency and set standards for each individual territory, not blanket standards. Listen to your TM's, they are your best asset.
