    I worked at Midwest Communications full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Excellent sales manager who knows what he's doing, flexible schedule (you generally set your own meetings), thorough training before you make sales calls on your own.

    Cons

    Benefits aren't the best. Minimal vacation time that you have to earn as you go. No 401K match (and you can't even contribute to your 401K until you've worked there for a year). Health insurance premium is expensive. You have to drive your own car for sales meetings (but mileage is paid). You have to work the day after Thanksgiving, and sometimes you have to work on evenings and weekends. Work life balance isn't great, especially if you have kids or other commitments.

    I worked at Midwest Communications part-time

    Pros

    Hard working but easy going culture. Nearly everyone I worked with were high energy and fun to work with. The sales Manager was a great mentor for me and seeks to help others succeed.

    Cons

    My part time position didn't provide high pay.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to foster the growth of the employees and seek to provide rewards to acknowledge hard work. Keep it up!

  5. "Great Culture, Know How to Treat Employees Right"

    Pros

    Everyone works collaboratively, a very teamwork driven culture. Often had group activities to raise company morale. Everything was handled locally, no top-down politics.

    Cons

    Only con would be that they don't have Black Friday as a company holiday and the company does not match anything you contribute to your 401k.

    I worked at Midwest Communications full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Very few pros about this employer.
    Good coworkers.
    Manager was nice, but didn't work at my location so there was very little interaction.

    Cons

    Little to no flexibility.
    Little inter-department interaction.
    Very little training.
    Poor follow-up/follow-through.
    LOT of turnover.
    Manager was nice, but didn't work at my location so when she-said/she-said situations came up, felt as if views of employee with longer company tenure was believed over nine.

    Advice to Management

    If 2+ people leave a specific location because of one employee, maybe that employee should be reevaluated, not the position.
    "As HR, we're the example" ... then provide realistic examples to follow.
