    Pros

    Company at my specific branch were all very friendly and helpful with basic day to day tasks. Nice new office and they give you a car for your travels.

    Cons

    If you don't know something, good luck figuring it out cause there will be no help from the management. They provided minimal support and education on the the products you are asked to sell.

    Advice to Management

    Start the new people off with ride alongs, making sure that those who are selling your products know what they are talking about.
