    Pros

    Good management, very different sales approach, but commission is unlimited and you get to be creative.

    Cons

    Not for the beginner, HUNDREDS of assets to sell, and several different budgets to hit makes it difficult to focus on selling any one thing in particular

    Listen to sales people when they bring up legitimate concerns for the industry and products. Allow for more of a democratic work environment that empowers sales people to be a part of the product decision making.

    Pros

    Great Company, well trained experienced talent and employees.

    Cons

    They don't value talent over 50.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more FT talent over age of 50. Put higher value on talent not youth. Listeners don't care if a talent is older.

    Pros

    Can get tickets to events sometimes. Some people are nice and friendly. Relaxed work environment when compared to most traditional settings.

    Cons

    Management is unaware of problems in the work place if they are aware of it then they choose not to deal with it. Not much room from growth. Most people left for better paying jobs elsewhere.
