    Pros

    Freedom to do what you need to do.

    Cons

    Unrealistic goals year over year.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get managers that understand the business over the bonus. Several managers have recently left the company and they are now hiring previous disgruntled employees that did not like the company or the compensation but due to hard times are back. Management is really lacking at the field level. If you ate liked then you are alright. Numbers don't mean anything to the managers who play favorites. It's a typical what have you done for me lately type atmosphere. Bad, ad, bad and that was at the business level, not sure how retail is.
