    Pros

    I won many awards based on my level of experience. My peers were n excellent source of learning my craft.

    Cons

    Lots of driving sometimes, 100 miles per day. Many accounts weren't disbursed very well to the right territories. My ad director had no experience in managing.

    Advice to Management

    Give the right person the job of working with employees. Make sure they are not in conflict with the staff.
