    Great hours, benefits, there are chances to make bonus, great advancement opportunities, paid maternity leave, and great atmosphere.

    Having to sell a lot of products. It was a nice place to work, minus selling things to customers. However, I've heard that there are no longer sells goals after the scam regarding fake accounts.

    Pros

    None. My co workers were amazing.

    Cons

    Horrible management, you are just a number, they do not care about the customers, money hungry, managers don't know the process but you will be punished for not doing it correctly, cross selling is number 1, horrible pay, rude arrogant managers. Once they get sued they fire a group of innocent employees who had nothing to do with the lawsuit. I will never work for this company again

    Advice to Management

    Fire them all, bring in a whole new team.

    Great learning opportunities. Good benefits. A lot of available information in the internal websites. Some are really great people and some like everywhere, not so much

    Group thinking is comforting for people who work at the company for a while. New people could find it difficult to find success.

    Implements what you learn.

    Pros

    Easy job that allows you to connect with and help people intimately.

    It feels like high school. District manager feeds into clique based atmosphere that breeds favoritism. Also, since the scandal broke, there is very little room for growth.
