    Pros

    Competitive salary for the position. If you know how to run business, you can bonus well. (I was double-bonusing) Great training program, awesome tools and resources

    Cons

    Had 5 District Managers in 1 year...even as a top performer, this limited growth and development opportunities. No opportunity to advance- every time a DM left, they split the district up into existing districts and didn't open the position. Many DMs micromanaged the manager schedule-- it shouldn't matter when I work if I properly train and develop my team!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Tell your managers you appreciate them before they leave. If you have a top performer, treat them well and don't micromanage. Better transitions between managers when people leave. The people underneath shouldn't suffer and be set back in development every time there's a new manager.
