    I have been working at Strategic Franchising full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    There are a lot of great people at the company. Lots of talent. The brands are great. Tons of real opportunity for the company

    Cons

    Talent isn't valued. Top level brought in from outside (like a revolving door), very frew promotions. People underpaid, undersupported.

    Advice to Management

    You've got great people. Why not try to hang on to them?

    Pros

    Strategic Franchising does an amazing job hiring great staff. Everyone I work with is extremely nice and personable.

    Cons

    the whole place is under staffed and underpaid for the roles they play in the company. unless your upper management, then pay seems fair.

    Advice to Management

    Hire enough staff and pay your employees fair wages. I believe the mentality is good in upper management but the support for the staff is sub pa.

    I worked at Strategic Franchising full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    There are a few good employees who work for them.

    Cons

    Highly unethical upper management, steals from both franchisees and employees. Points the finger back at the person to tell them it's all their fault. Starts from the top and trickles down through the entire organization.

    It is a revolving door for all departments.

    In the hiring process they over promise and way under deliver.

    They sell you on this position with very unrealistic expectations. Top sales person sold 18 last year, the minimum requirement is 24. If you do not sell 2 every month, they threaten your job constantly.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of all upper management. They are the root of all the major problems and unethical in the way they conduct business and treat employees.

    I worked at Strategic Franchising full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Interesting franchises, a few nice people to work with.

    Cons

    Many are continually let go in a mean and unprofessional manner. Complete lack of leadership from execs. No appreciation for hard work and no opp to advance. CEO and upper management are only interested in money (theirs). Questionable ethics re: franchise sales. Poor treatment of franchisees who sometimes lose their savings.

    Advice to Management

    Replace executives with experienced leadership that will treat employees with respect and appreciation. Develop moral and ethical guidelines and live up to them. Take an interest in retaining employees.

    Pros

    Neat Franchising Concepts...and some really nice people to work with.

    Cons

    Very poor, unprofessional management and unethical franchise "award" procedures.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of your cruel, incompetent management. Manage only after you have remedied your companies unethical and antiquated practices. Don't scar any more talented, good employees for a few months of work that will certainly end after the realization that SFS is a very poorly run company.

    "Secretarial work instead of marketing internship"

    Pros

    Very flexible times, easy going and will never be bothered while you're putting together packets.

    Cons

    The higher ups, but not CEO's, are incompetent and disrespectful towards interns, while secretaries really run the show and you don't really help with anything but mailing lists. There's also a huge turn over rate of people quitting and being immediately replaced.

    Advice to Management

    Be kind to the people who do the nitty gritty work, maybe they'll stick around longer than a few months at a time.
