Good work/life balance if you are not in a supervisor role Nice benefits Tradeshows can be fun Experience working with clients and retailers Good resume builder
Low pay for what's expected If you are in the field as a merchandiser or account executive you are paying to work--no commission, sales bonus, car allowance, mileage, very low gas card amount. Kind of ridiculous especially when you are expected to sell. They are very nit picky about their processes and procedures.

Working with a great division and expanding existing clients.
The uncertainty of the environment and the lack of work life balance.1

Flexible schedule was good for life work balance
No support- Very poor management from the top through the local office, micro manage every move

The clients I get to interact with are well known brands and have been exciting to execute programs with them. I love the people I work with and the company culture is great! ASM has a terrific executive leadership team and they provide forward thinking which is huge to our company's success.
The job is demanding so sometimes it is difficult to maintain a work life balance. In my role sometimes i end up doing a lot of administrative work vs. marketing and strategy.

promote from within yearly club supervisor trips depending on your DSM you can create a good work life balance as a Club Supervisor at Sams Club
Company runs a bit like a schizophrenic or bipolar person is at the helm....they stop and start initiatives with no rhyme or reason. Club Supervisors are expected to maintain a 99% on date execution but are often understaffed to acihieve this goal. CS's are caught in the middle between an often dont give a care attitude from Sam's Club management and a kiss butt attitude from ASM. ASM needs to negotiate a firm contract with Sam's club and both parties work to fulfill it.

Cell phone...I can't get away from. Laptop...I can't get away from. Vacation Time...I don't have time to take. It has been a great way to lose touch with all my family and friends. Unbelievable 'Work/More Work/NO Life Balance'
Expected to be at the 24/7 beck and call of my Associates, the two managers above me, and the entire ASM organization in California from housekeeping to CEO. How dare I take a day for myself. If my two managers need a response from their microscopic review of numbers, I'd better have my pizza delivery hat on because they want an answer in 30 minutes or less. If Human Resources sandbags a problem for 2 years and then suddenly has a question for me on my so-called day off, watch out Chicken Little 'cause the sky is falling if I don't contact the Little Princess ASAP.12

Large Company - Recently went public GREAT work/life balance IF you're in the right sub-company (not true of all divisions); takes time to earn this
Employees leave and don't get replaced; work falls on existing/remaining employees to cut costs

I have a great staff, 25-30 people, turnover is lower that expected for a position that can vary from only 6 hrs a week to 25hrs a week without notice. I love my job, it is fun, fast-paced and always new challenges. Flexible and good work/life balance.
Pay is not as lucrative as in similar positions with other companies. I am currently looking for another job because my salary is not enough for me to make ends meet. I really hate to leave, but opportunity for advancement or chances for salary increases seem bleak.3
