    Management is good and friendly to you and one day, they can you suddenly like a piece of trash without any clue as to why. Benefits were great with full medical, 401k and free food! Communication is crap though.

    Bad communication. Shady business practices

    I worked at Various full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great product with large international potential. Business managers are given near complete control to manage their markets.

    Cons

    The company is currently run by people who do not understand international business. Their mind-set is that they can run international business identically to how they run the US business.

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to understand that business practices and the importance of relationships in foreign countries are different from the US. They need to manage international markets without prejudice and preconceived negative images of the country and need to respect local cultures, customs, the people and the fact that business practices are different from US. Arrogance, rudeness and dictating distributors does not work.

    Co-workers are the best, very supportive of each other.

    They have free breakfast and lunch and all the benefits are great!

    I worked at Various full-time

    Pros

    Free lunch, flexible schedule, decent pay, benefits.

    Cons

    Minimal communication. They can suddenly let you go without any cause. I suspect it is due to their recent bankruptcy. Business has been declining.

    Advice to Management

    COMMUNICATION! If you feel there is something the employee can improve upon, TALK TO THEM FIRST! This really can save hiring and firing expenses.
