    Pros

    Company car, benefits, salary, iPad, very philanthropic company, cares about their employees and the community. Every year there is an awesome National Sales Meeting.

    Cons

    You may be micro-managed a bit, but its only because the Retail Supervisors have 8-10 reps to manage, so they need to make sure everyone is doing their job.

    Advice to Management

    Making more of an effort to get teams together more often. Since most of the time you are in your territory, you never get to see any of your teammates except for at the National Sales Meeting.

    Pros

    Company car and gas card.

    Cons

    The company micro manages you every minute of your day.. How long it takes you to drive from location to location. There is no balance you are required to do an 8 hour day and then
    All your weekly paperwork has to be done on your own time. It could take 2 hours but if you cut your day 15 minutes it's a problem. They have a huge turn over rate. The supervisors are robots with no people skills and if you make a complaint or suggestion you are done. They say they have an open door policy but nothing is kept in confidence and no one keeps their word. STAY AWAY this company could make their numbers if they would hire new managers especially in the South East teams.

    Advice to Management

    Take some communication classes and treat your reps and supervisors with respect and not stab them in the back.

    Pros

    Company car, Benefits, Products, Giving Back Program

    Cons

    Low morale due to heavy handiness of upper management and it rolls down to retail reps. Reps must do as told--do not think outside the box. Very oppressive, especially in certain parts of the country.

    Advice to Management

    Get it together between sales and merchandising divisions. Back your merchandisers. This could be a great program. Monitor and train managers better so they are proactive, not reactive. Believe in your employees.

    Pros

    Allows you to work independently, fun concept of brands, good business trip locations

    Cons

    Management is NOT united, and very unorganized at times. Not open to new ideas and suggestions even thought some say they are, they don't mean it. If you have been there long enough, you know not to speak up and try to fly under the radar for fear of loosing your job.

    Advice to Management

    Be proactive as opposed to reactive, support your management and the decisions they make, and don't back stab and make things up to cover your own faults.
