    Fun environment

    Roles can be hard to differentiate
    At the mercy of the vendor and can be tricky to relay to customers

    Advice to Management

    Need to understand our realistic day to day operations and that we can't be sales focused all the time when we have to handle support issues etc

    Pros

    Time off and laid back atmosphere make this a dream job. The associates are nice and work hard. The management group, sups and lower managers, are close.

    Cons

    Lack of communication between upper management and lower management needs work. Some days there are several different ideas of what is going on and some times you will not know if something has changed.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate changes and intentions. Let operations run the operation instead of allowing support departments dictate operations.
