    Pros

    - Monthly bonus on revenue + GREAT discount on product
    - Work/life balance is great (minus holiday season)
    - Constant product/sales training
    - Personal and professional growth
    - One of the best resume builders you can have
    - 100% focused on the employee

    Cons

    - Long hours during holidays
    - Internal advancement is proving to be rather difficult, but not impossible
    - Certain duties can be tasking ie: 6 AM audits, cross department selling etc.

    Advice to Management

    Less micro-management (when its not actually necessary), One-on-One reviews NEED to be monthly.

  2. Excellant company to work for

    Pros

    The ability to learn as much as you want about any department that interests you is incredible. Combine that with the ability to practice what you have learned, to grow professionally and be coached personally gives you plenty of room to prepare yourself for moving up or over within the company.

    Cons

    Making the best use of your time can be challenging for some.

    Advice to Management

    Never take your blue shirts for granted. Observe, encourage, coach and guide. Don't play favorites.
