    Pros

    Low Micromanagement, Great people to work with and great products.

    Cons

    Training needs improvement, increase in base salaries and adjust quotas so they are truly achievable, increase car allowance and cover gas to industry standard and don't implement micromanagement to offset the improvements you make. Improve in house customer service with basics on how to handle people on the phone and proper tone when speaking with customers.

    Advice to Management

    To SLT - Training needs improvement, increase in base salaries and adjust quotas so they are truly achievable, increase car allowance and cover gas to industry standard and don't implement micromanagement tracking (GPS apps) to offset the small improvements you make. Improve in house customer service with basics on how to handle people on the phone and proper tone when speaking with customers. Actively pursue managed care issues in smaller rural areas rather than ignoring because they aren't important to the whole and seem minute.
