    Pros

    I love the people I work with. It's always great to come to work. They are also very flexible with scheduling which helps a lot of people there. Great PTO.

    Cons

    No CEO for 2 years, and it's starting to show. Lack of leadership and direction. Zero growth opportunities. Pay is quite low. They rarely replace anyone when they leave, giving others a lot of extra work and leaving people uneasy about the company stability.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in your people, you'll see an amazing return.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at FC Products full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    It was fun and deeply satisfying to sell products and training that helped people get their lives and priorities in order.

    Cons

    There was high stress as the company kept shutting down stores. Store management seemed to be less supported as the web sales cannibalized the store sales. Web sales seemed to be given an unfair advantage by also giving free shipping no matter the size of the sale. Although this was probably not very profitable, it was obvious that the current CEO just wanted to bring sales to her web marketing that she had gotten going.

    Advice to Management

    The course has already been set. There's no turning back now, is there?

    Pros

    The products are life changing, and for the most part, the company practices their core values. It has been a very rewarding employment experience.

    Cons

    No real advancement opportunities. Retail jobs have been completely shut down. As the company has gone eccom only, staff has been scaled down.

    I worked at FC Products full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Some of the Best people that I have ever had the chance to work with were at FC Organizational Products. I enjoyed Working for a Company that was founded on helping others achieve greatness. The fundamental principles and culture that Allowed the company to succeed have been taught to many other large company and helped them to achieve success.

    Cons

    Some of the upper management has lost sight of the things that made the company great. I know that hard economical choices had to be made, however I felt that the company could have benefited more if the direction of the company had not been changed so drastically as it was.

    Advice to Management

    Get back to what made the company great.
