Suggestions for improvement

  • Better coverage for maternity leaves, Quarterly comission payouts, more regular meetings or trainings to support team- difficult working from home.

What I like about the company

I love having a flexible schedule and getting to work from home. I love the uncapped commission plus a base. I like the challenge of constantly expanding my territory and gaining additional sales and product categories. The design process is my favorite. Healthcare is pretty good and the 401k match is a nice benefit. We also gain shares for years we work.

What I dislike about the company

Maternity leave is difficult and poorly covered. They support your time off but your territory sales definitely suffer. Base pays are also low because the commission is uncapped. Earning potential is awesome but all money is earned on the backend and is taxed fairly high since it’s comission. Certain divisions don’t get reimbursed for travel expenses.

Suggestions for improvement

  • About the only thing I can think of is better medical, but that's probably not too different from other similar sized companies. After all, there are plenty of perks to working for a cheer company, so I guess they don't need to lure people with too many extras.

What I like about the company

I can work from home in an emergency situation. My direct boss is very understanding about family situations, as long as you don't take advantage of the situation. Depending on what you do, you may get to travel to the corporate office in Indianapolis or one of the satellite offices in Dallas, or even one of the competition venues like Orlando.

What I dislike about the company

It's hard to think of any. Most people in some departments like the instructional camps have known each other for years and are very tight knit, but they are friendly and open to new people if you are outgoing and make the effort to enter their social circle. People generally enjoy their jobs. It's a cheerleading company after all!

No.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Take a long look at your upper management and consider a blind survey regarding their performances to see if they true bring value or the company down. Employee morale is equivalent to this level.

What I like about the company

Peers and the ability to work in a field I love.

What I dislike about the company

Management and upper management. Filled with clicks.
