    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    It's a job......they will hire anyone off the street.The HR team has no clue what they are doing.

    Cons

    No room for advancement unless you conform to kissing upper managements ass. They don't have a clue how to run things and the ones that do get weeded out.

    Advice to Management

    Retire............

    Pros

    Overall, it is as well run an organization as it can be in this inustry. Nice people in customer service and good benefits

    Cons

    They continually ask us as a sales force to peddle products that have nothing to do with the core business. We inundate our retailers with crap (not because they need it but because we will lose our jobs if we don't sell it). For instance, right now half of the 200 sales reps will lose their jobs if they don't sell one of the new programs (H.E.) even if they are competent in all other lines of business!

    Advice to Management

    Good luck to your customers when you "pink slip" the reps this January for not selling the new product line ! You are going to scramble to replace them
