    Pros

    Nothing pro, the book for kids maybe. Mostly lies and shady business practices.

    Never even met a person, company called Ambassador Company, distributing character books for kids. No training, no pay, they wont give a signed copy og employment agreement

    Advice to Management

    Quit lying to people...

    Pros

    flexibility, good company support. The company provides a very worthwhile service to the community and families and schools typically appreciate the materials.

    Pros

    The staff provides an excellent atmosphere of Christian values. You are truly welcome to express yourself genuinely and know that you will be well respected and accommodated.

    Cons

    The only real con for me is that I work outside of the office and don't get to regularly see all the administrative staff.

    Advice to Management

    Know that your leadership is very inspiring. It is truly a blessing to work under your direction.

    Pros

    4 day work weeks & unlimited earning potential is really nice to take. Ahh 3 day weekends ate really the best.

    Cons

    None, the goodwill publishers are pretty special and treat us well. We have to go to an all expenses paid trip every year.

    Advice to Management

    Keep treating us like you love us. We tend to believe you :-)

    Pros

    High level of Autonomy, freedom to work without someone over your shoulder

    Cons

    Very low communication- I sense they go through people very frequently.

    Advice to Management

    Better coaching and direction. It was very easy to live on the edge of not knowing whether you would have a job tomorrow or not. Your pay plan is not concise and there is little room for growth within the current environment

    Pros

    Good Will Publishers Inc. gives all employees the opportunity to be part of doing something positive while at the same time being able to make a full time income. They are family focused and give employees ample opportunity to put their family first.

    Cons

    As a group of related companies, communication can be tricky at times. As with any company, there is always room for improvement with communication.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to support employees as individuals and we will continue to grow.
