    Pros

    None. They do tout amenities but do not encourage use. Internal sporting events all come with an age cap! EEO???????????

    Cons

    There is no reason to work for this company, it is self-contained and narcissistic. If you are willing to drink the Kool-Aid and join a clique, all will be well. If you are not of such a mindset, then you will fly solo and never hear a whisper from your colleagues, including management.

    Advice to Management

    Break up your segregation and start encouraging participation as opposed to isolationism. This is a confusing and frustrating place to work.

    Pros

    I worked for one of the Tempur-Pedic flagship stores for about a year and a half and never have I gained better sales experience anywhere else! The managers really care about your well being and will groom you to be the best sales person you can be! The pay is higher than any other retail position I've had in the past. Tempur-Pedic closes its doors on Thanksgiving which is great, also! Goals and expectations were clearly communicated and if I ever had any trouble or needed any help, everyone was more than willing to do so. The discount is AMAZING and soon you'll turn your entire family and friends into Tempur-Pedic owners. The manager is great at working around your schedule and your needs. They often run fun contests and you'll always find extra ways to earn cash bonuses or prizes. My coworkers at Tempur-Pedic became my work family and they are some of the best around! Everyone that I had the pleasure of meeting at corporate was always so friendly and helpful, also.

    Cons

    There are none that I can think of. If you want sales experience and work in retail, this is the place to be!

    Pros

    Company events, good supervisors, safety focused, great team in the production parts.

    Cons

    New leaders are negative. Our production is never enough. Don't recognize good jobs, always say couldn't you do one more? Always think we're doing something wrong. Have to use vacation time when we shutdown because of they're poor planning. Don't care about the hourly workers. It's becoming a sweatshop.

    Advice to Management

    Realize the impact the negative leaders are having on the workforce and other leaders. Make a change before it's too late and good workers leave.

    Pros

    TSI offers solid compensation and you are selling the best brands in the industry. They do offer decent healthcare and there are some truly great people who work for this company.

    Cons

    They have made many changes in the past year that have been detrimental for their employees. The health benefits have become sub-par especially if you need to cover your spouse and or children. They have taken away mileage for account reps and replaced it with a company car which you are required to pay toward. They also have recently created sales targets way above realistic expectations to prevent employees from taking advantage of the bonus compensation program making it very difficult to make your total compensation target. They also capped cost of living wage increase after a massive layoff last year at 2%.

    Pros

    A lot of good people work here. I've personally had a lot of opportunities to learn and gain new skill sets.

    Cons

    At times communication can be lacking between departments. The company sometimes makes desperate moves when sales are down- they can be good in the short term but have negative consequences in the long term. They seem to be doing this less over the last year though. There has consistently been a reorganization every September/October since 2012.

    Pros

    Awesome pay, medical, dental, vacation, investment and sign on bonus

    Cons

    HR and Key leaders have that good old boys mentality. Work condition in no air condition old factory that has multiple structural challenges and many employees are related so one might not fit in if not from geo-area.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on quality training, provide work life balance, and control family group hiring
