Good health insurance Nice work life balance Summers off (unpaid)
The amount of stress that management and corporate put on us is not comparable to the pay we get. The company is out of touch with current trends and blames the consultants for not doing enough when we’re not given tools to succeed. They have us borderline harrass schools and parents for more fairs and when they say no we’re expected to contact them a week later to see if they changed their mind. We feel like used car salesmen. Our pay is completely dependent upon a school’s fair success. If school is out due to snow, illness or weather then your pay is affected and you’re expected to make it up. It’s a joke7

decent work life balance, people are generally nice, most folks are somewhat conscious or care about social issues like racism.
Not enough pay for the amount of work that is asked for the person to do. There is no support for employees to move up in the company unless you know someone.

- Big stable company - Good set of benefits - Diverse and warm team members
- No oversight of the relation employee - management - No way to report issues the management - Employer does not invest in the developers training and expects people to switch technologies without issues - Company expects devs to work extra hours without reporting them and doesn't pay for those hours - Back to school sessions creates crunch time and unavoidable stress - No technical career paths, only way to get promotions is leading

Reputable company, respectable mission statement, mostly great products that one can take pride in representing
Inconsistent hours, sometimes non- existent, sometimes overly demanding. Expected to have open availability and be on call without any guarantee of a minimum amount of pay if no work becomes available. Mileage pay rate is less than state average. Minimal annual hourly pay raises. Company boasts profit increases every year, yet employee pay does not reflect this. Constant turnover due to lack of hours1

make your own schedule, work from home.
super low pay. after 3 years and top marks on annual reviews received a grand total of .75 cents in pay. That is .25cents per year. if you get the wrong manager like with any job can be difficult. I had some good and some bad. A different one every year no less.4

Great Regional Director and Managers. Coworkers are nice and knowledgeable. Training is good but they try to cram too much into a day.
Seem to hire only Per Diem which can be okay if you don't need full time work and benefits, and you don't mind never knowing how much work you'll actually get. Company motto seems to be, 'We're building the plane as we fly it.' Fine occasionally but not as an overarching philosophy. They expect a lot of work for free and don't pay you what you are worth.2

The company has an admirable mission. Field Reps have a lot of time off. We get 6 weeks off over the summer. We also get extra days off for perfect attendance which most of us get because management does not know if you are working or not. Although you are supposed to visit schools most of the job can be done over the phone from home.
Low pay which is probably the reason many reps do their work over the phone instead of in person. Management is not able to solve any problems and blame the reps when things go wrong.

Flexible schedule, good benefits, summer break
Minimum pay and an enormous amount of pressure in order to increase revenue and fair count. High turnover
