      Pros

      Nothing!! Earlier it was the brand "Teacher's", now that too has been diluted

      Cons

      Management, Team politics, compliance is interpreted not to iron out and guide to a straight path but to use as a power tool to kick out employees. Older employees across know how to save themselves and you will be at the altar of sacrifice. Don't risk your career here.

      Pros

      Fun and friendly environment with great sales for across the county. Hours could be long, but as I always felt part of a team, I was happy to put them in. HQ roles in Deerfield appeared to be more corporate, but if you got the right role (supporting sales or marketing) it could be a great experience.

      Cons

      Company would spend a ridiculous amount on consulting services to find out where they could save money by firing people. Each year there would be a new cull. They should trust their management structure more to make the right decisions on such matters. Following stock market flotation, company became less focused on workers and more on shareholders.
