Pros

Good pay, high comission, lots of opportunity to work

Cons

Inconvenient work hours, 7am weekend mandatory meetings for all staff, very strict attendance with point penalties that can lead to termination, stressful to hit quota, very seniriotity based. Bad if you are a new hire.

Advice to Management

Be more flexible with employees' personal life and scheduling. People have lives outside of work and you make it impossible to balance work and life with crazy working hour demands. And it would be great to allow weekends off even to new hires and not feel like you need to work for 5 years before you can earn a weekend day off.

    Pros

    Salary and benefits. And that is about it

    Cons

    No work/life balance. Have to schedule a month in advance to take a day off and you have to use your vacation days to get it. If you like having weekends off then don't apply. You will never see a weekend off. NEVER! Sales quotas are inflated and moving to incentive pay instead off commission. Micromanaged to death. Constantly a manager behind you with a clipboard telling you how bad you are at your job.

    Advice to Management

    Set realistic expectations. And stop micromanaging your senior sales reps.
