    Pros

    Decent pay, constantly learning things about technology, scheduling was ok, but retail hours. Usually able to get time off that is requested. Insurance plans were decent, however when I gave birth, I still ended up with a $1,400 bill...Definitely better for sick visits or preventative care, not child birthing or major surgery.

    Cons

    Rules to receive quarterly bonus are ridiculous. If you are on maternity leave for 30 days but still work the entire remainer of the quarter, you don't qualify for a bonus. Any type of leave actually. Even if you are the highest sales rep...that happened to me multiple times unfortunately.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Change the bonus rules. It should be based on what you sell in the time frame, not whether or not you were on a leave for a week. I missed out on two bonuses because of how the quarters fell and the satrt and end of my maternity leave, effected two bonus. I was the top seller in my district, and got zero bonus. All my coworkers obtained the money that I earned. I'm still bitter, lol. Also, better insurance package for the amount it costs!

    Pros

    They have a cafeteria. If you started with a launch, you would have great input into the solution.

    Cons

    Management has changed from our speedy successful launch to decreased sales, the rise in politics, and the fall of many good team members. It is almost like management flips a coin for a bid decision. They spent foolish amounts of money on things that were decided on in a split seconds but they will toss a devoted, experienced, responsible employee out of the building before you can fathom the stupidity.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Seek leaders, team builders, and those that share ideas to make their team look good rather than promote their flaws, steal their ideas for your own, and destroy anyone who doesn't play to their fiddle, regardless of whether it will help the company or not. Don't hire any more politicians. Hire people who create, not steal. Hire people who inspire, not manage by fear, and last hire people who help the team produce results. If a team of 5 are winning every game, where do you get your logic from that tells you to eliminate one of them, preferably the one that cost us more. Begin to understand motives that managers have for poor choices like these. Investigate motives. Find out if the problem continues, then eliminate that team leader who is causing self destruction.
