    Pros

    I enjoyed working there because they paid well. I got a brand new company car every year. There service was excellent and therefore easy to sell.

    Cons

    There is a tremendous amount of computer work to get done in a timely fashion in order to spend more time with you customers and less in front of a computer.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It is a huge company.....treat your employees, and not numbers.
