    Pros

    I have worked for Sleep Number for over 5 years, and in that time I have seen leadership and sales staff come and go. I have enjoyed working for Sleep Number up until the last 2 years, I have seen the company go from being driven to help change lives, to focusing more on profits, overloading customers with additional items that they may have no need for.
    Sleep Number's dream is to be the worlds most beloved brand, but if your not creating a culture that is loved and appreciated by its strongest advocates "the employees" you can never grow to a level such as Apple.

    Cons

    Long hours, little to no recognition, a pay scale that is ever changing and becoming more focused on company profits and greed, than sharing the wealth with the people that drive the front line "sales staff".

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop focusing on selling everything in the store to the customer, over loading them with pillows and mattress pads. The final step was the platinum rule training, which basically teaches your employees to read customer personalities and mimic them in order to gain there trust so you can get into there wallets.
