I have been working at Schwan's full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

You get out of it what you put in to it. Good opportunity to make money if you follow the plan and work hard. Decent benefits and 401K. Mostly good people to work with.

Cons

As of late,way too much micro management. They used to talk of having an entrepreneurial spirit and that is what drove the company. Now it's exactly their way or the highway. Too many reports and paperwork and not enough time to work with the employees in the field.

Advice to Management

Let the local managers and district managers run their sales companies and hold them accountable to the results.

    I have been working at Schwan's full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Independence, paid car usage, reasonably good commissions, decent benefits

    Cons

    Long hours, minimal effort to address work-life balance, lack of strategic planning, terrible internal communication, definite lack of advancement opportunity.

    Advice to Management

    Better communication is needed at all levels.
    A clear strategic plan to guide the company for more than the next quarter would help.
    Some sort of plan for career advancement is needed (and sorely lacking.)
