    Pros

    -Starting pay and benefits are fantastic
    -Ability to move up within first year or two
    -Coworkers are genuinely good people who want to help you
    -Company has taken to heart work/life balance and creating a better culture

    Cons

    -While in their persuit for diversity, it appears some employees get advanced simply due to their race or sex, not for performance.
    -HQ seems to launch half baked ideas that the sales force has to fumble through to implement
    -If you want to move up you will likely have to relocate for each advancement, but that is the nature of the beast with a large sales organization

    Advice to Management

    Hold HQ teams more accountable and consult the field more often. Heed the feedback from the field, we are your front line!

    Consider doing 360 feedback for promotions and year end reviews. A person's perception by peers can sometimes be vastly different than the perception by management and this should be included in assessments for promotion and year end performance.
