    Pros

    Flexible schedules and teleworking are supported.

    Positions often are filled with contractors when employees should be hired.

    Pros

    Great Benefits and access to tools that allow you to be successful. As long as you are meeting your goals you are given the autonomy to manage your own business and sales efforts among your assigned accounts.

    Cons

    It seems like this company is driven by excessive micromanagement from corporate and regional managers, however, at the local level management will focus on minimizing road blocks to ensure success.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Less focus on old, internal process that adds no value to our clients.
