    Pros

    There used to be two many to list, but in the last several years the Cons far out weigh the Pros.

    Cons

    Many decisions are made in a vacuum without the input from those directly involved.
    Even when on PTO you are still asked to work,.
    You never know when you will be asked to work out of town for extended periods of time. Even if you have plans with your family, appointments, commitments you are expected to go and change your life.
    Direct manager is more of a dictator than a manager.
    Even though, the company has an "open door" policy that is not the case.

    Advice to Management

    Management needs more training and it should be the same across the country. Get away from micro managing and employees will be much happier!

    Pros

    Selling a known product to retailers.

    Cons

    The treat you like an employee and tell you how to do things yet they do not pay you as their employee. The provide little to no support to their Distributors, the Distributors commission is very low compared to other companies. Management is overpaid and does not provide the support to WSD they are supposed to. Half the time when you talk to them you hear dogs barking in the background or some other indication that they are sitting at home instead of supporting Distributors like they are supposed to.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your Distributors better and do your job! Do not just take D.S.R.'s by their word that they are doing there job. Many are not!
