    Pros

    Nice office environment. Upper Management is great to work with.

    Cons

    Middle Management needs to learn how they should retain talented employees. Middle Management should also be trained to actually learn how to manage others and their workloads.

    Advice to Management

    Senior Management needs to look more closely to Middle Management at this company and start cutting loses and look at employees with talent, experience and who are well-educated.

    Pros

    Competitive Pay and Benefits, great co-workers

    Cons

    In 2001 when a started at RSL they were very entrepreneurial, we could staff the sales office in the way we saw fit to make it succeed - and we did in the LA Sales Office. RSL now has very descript job duties which limits employees to play to their multiple strengths. Definitely is more "Corporate" now.

    Advice to Management

    Please see "Cons" above
