    Pros

    The employees are great people to work with. There is also a good potential for upward mobility and opportunities for different jobs within the company.

    Cons

    Tons of work and responsibility for little compensation. General lack of communication and organization. High rate of turnover means that few people have a very comprehensive understanding of the intricacies of their jobs.

    Advice to Management

    Pay people more so they will stick with the company and not leave as soon as they have experience.

    Pros

    Products sell themselves. Flexible. Employees are generally nice, good people. It is located in an old school building, which is cool (but also hot).

    Cons

    Low pay. Senior management seems to be stuck in traditional, conservative rut about employees and sales techniques. There is a lack of new products and ideas.

    Advice to Management

    Promote more gender equality and technical support for new hires. Allow for more flexibility for working out of home.
