Great entry level job, but the higher you go the more disillusioned you become

Varied (Former Employee) Las Vegas, NV (US)

Pros*Great people to work with who are passionate about products and people.
*Products are excellent and their quality makes it easy to sell. Ethics in production are high.
*Chuck Williams, the founder, is an absolutely amazing and inspiring man who treats everyone like family.

Cons*Time off was hard to come by, work/life balance very difficult to achieve
*Too much favoritism shown by some managers
*Mistakes are very hard to overcome, even simple ones. It becomes a roadblock if you ever desire a transfer, promotion, merit increase, etc.

Advice to Senior Management*Trust individual locations to do the right thing.
*Too many metrics, streamline employee evaluations so that they are more meaningful
*More support of employee decisions would be nice

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
