At times great, but overall the most stressful, negative, untrusting environment I have ever been in.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

If this division were a sandwich, I would say that the bread (top and bottom) is good. Everything in between needs to be replaced with new, and unspoiled meat that is truly open to the changes that the company is trying to make. Management, especially middle levels of management are valuable, but if you're trying to win the super bowl, then you have to know when to move on and start drafting newer and younger rookies to run your team.

    Pros

    Always the people one works with makes it a plus. The majority were helpful and wanted you to succeed.

    Cons

    Thought business model was wrong. Most of the time acquire a client then pass along to a retention person because one had to keep getting new business, which is okay on the surface. But, the client you worked so hard to attain wanted and should expect to have an ongoing relationship with you not some faceless retention person. Overtime, the transition could take place not early in the process. The 80/20 rule always applies no exception.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get more of your people into the field and listen to your foot soldiers on the ground because they are the one's who truly have the pulse of what is going on.
