    I have been working at LifeWatch full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good technology with a customer service advantage over the competition. Managers support their reps and do their best to give them the tools they need. 401k match plus expenses. Upper management is doing a better job listening to the sales force and giving them tools to win.

    Cons

    Over promises new technology to reps and customers. Goals can be unrealistic. Lots of turnover. Too much turnover in top management.

    Advice to Management

    Get stability to encourage reps stay with the company. Provide new technology when promised. Don't over promise and under deliver.

    Pros

    Friendly staff, helpful managers. No stress or pressure. Easy going. Very relaxed office ambience.

    Cons

    Very cheap pay. Recently they did a market analysis on the average income for each and every position in the company. They raised wages for anyone below that average. Only problem is the skills required to do these jobs are not much, so the pay is not great.

    Pros

    Likeable people. Good pay. New management is trying to change the very siloed culture. Efforts are being made to improve the company to be more attractive to existing employees and to new people.

    Cons

    The company is still challenged by a lot of disorganization. It has difficulty recognizing and advancing its best employees and supporting those that are good contributors. The office itself has not been upgraded for many years and is suffering from looking a bit tired.

    Advice to Management

    Move faster on the investments and improvements for employees including a more formal evaluation and advancement process, renovated office environment, and recognize that you have talented employees that are in demand in other companies.

    Pros

    The people who work with LifeWatch are friendly and courteous. There is some flexibility within shceduling when needed.

    Cons

    The management teams seem to not have any particular direction they are headed in and cause uncertainty internally in the company. There is a major lack of proper communication and future plans of which direction the company is headed.

    Advice to Management

    Constantly hiring new people to supposedly fix a much deeper problem is not the answer and only makes matters worse for employees. Better transparency between management and staff and having a plan for the companies future will remove uncertainty.

    Pros

    Nice work life balance, great colleagues and workplace. New management has new ideas and fresh attitude. Climbing up the ladder is slow.

    Cons

    Low salaries and bad people management. Slow career advancement. No new projects. No bonuses. No learning possibilities and very strict procedures.

    Advice to Management

    Very big middle management with undefined roles. You have bright and brilliant people in low levels and you must address them or they will leave.
