    Pros

    Great Benefits for entry level. Bonus structure at the end of the year. Company car and gas card provided. Decent work-life balance.

    Cons

    Job enjoyment can be based on your manager. Can be lonely working from the road. Must stay at location for 3 years to advance to another location either laterally or by promotion. Make sure you are okay living in assigned territory for at least 3 years.

    Pros

    Company car, training, 401k, bonus, independence

    Cons

    Work load is increasing and difficult to balance. Compensation needs to be raised to accommodate increasing demands. Continuous training would be beneficial. Expense money needs to be updated to reflect current rates. More flexibility with relocation.

    Pros

    Flexible schedule
    Fully loaded company car
    Gas card can be used for personal use
    Floating holidays and 14 days PTO
    Paid company giveback opportunities

    Cons

    It is nearly impossible to move from a location you are moved to. When you go through the hiring process, they make it sound like you could make a lateral move if a more desirable location opens up. Don't count on it.
    Getting a promotion from TM to AE or DM is very political and dependent on your District Manager.
    Selling tobacco doesn't exactly give you the warm and fuzzy feelings.

    Pros

    Competitive Salary, investment to long-term development, benefit package, freedom

    Cons

    Needed mobility to move forward in career

    Advice to Management

    As a manager, I encourage other managers to be more open to honesty and candor, those demonstrating should be valued and those not comfortable being vulnerable should be coached.

    Pros

    Ongoing training and development. Opportunity to travel, but not all the time. Steady company that gives you all the tools to be successful. Despite selling a product that is in decline, you never feel as if massive cuts are coming.

    Cons

    Dirty job, must be willing to get your hands dirty. No real opportunity for advancement, but the salary is decent and increases with time.

    Tobacco industry. Really, not much else.
