    Pros

    I cannot find any pro for this company, for me was the worst work experience ever. I would not recommend anyone to work for them unless you have no option...

    Cons

    Low level of payment comparing with industry for the same level of job requirements. High level of stress for no reason...

    Pros

    The job culture is good and you get to work independently without much pressure.
    Nice environment and workplace, some people are very nice.

    Cons

    Low salaries, middle management hardly gives opportunity for advancement, lack of training and keep hiring young people in order to pay less.

    Advice to Management

    Raise your salaries and people will be happy to stay with the company.
    Let people tell you about new ideas and ways to do business, don't keep the same traditional ways where only the same get credit for business.

    Pros

    They were good at keeping up with training on all aspects of the job from technology to actually selling techniques. Very good management at my location, they were always willing to help. They let you handle your accounts with no micromanagement. The salary and benifits were average.

    Cons

    I would say one of the biggest cons would be that you had to work through lunch and they would only give you half pay. Also the location we were at was very old and outdated. This position would be great for a person right out of college or a person with no kids.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up with the great training and support system.
    Keep promoting with in and keep you managers happy.
    I would work on the work like balance for the inside sales reps. with kids.

    Pros

    Great personal growth and great coworkers who treat you like family, ability to travel to many places.

    Cons

    They treat people as numbers and over tax people on ill-established productivity goals. Leadership is non-existent and things are micro managed on the ground level, support from the 200 Vice Presidents in the company is minimal.

    Advice to Management

    Get your hands dirty once in awhile, and listen to the people who work for you. The results may surprise you.
