    Pros

    There is a lot of money to be made. The company culture is one of flexibility, family friendly, and pretty laid back, yet highly goal/reward oriented. It allows you much interaction with customers, and allows you to advance and grow within the company at your own pace. Wonderful vacation/health benefits.

    Cons

    You won't please every customer, but you won't at all careers.
