      Pros

      The work is good if you have a mind for if, sometimes the hours can be long but the supervisors made it worth it

      Cons

      Corporate management couldn’t understand operations if they tried. Instead they want to include all these new rules. The new merger is going to tank if they don’t get it together and recognize the sales reps hard work and dedication

      Pros

      Great brand that has been well respected in the community. Some people really want to do the right thing.

      Management cannot commit to supporting the product and feel obliged to undercut it at every juncture. Customers are mistreated, staff is neglected.
