    Pros

    Because the amount you make will depend on your own efforts. You make what you earn, and how much you try.

    Cons

    If you are not an independent player, this might be hard for you. There is not much guidance for those who have no experience.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    To create a better training program. Just implement a better system to help people sell with more confidence. Show them how to do it.

    Work life balance -- the parking lot is mostly empty by 5:30p.m.
    The brand looks great on your resume.
    The company makes a significant investment in IT, particularly as it relates to the field force and new business.
    Long-term senior leadership that has high integrity and commitment to the community.

    Cons

    Professional talent is underutilized.
    Lacks some of the sophistication one would expect at a Fortune 200 company.
    ROI-based decision making is infrequent.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Explore why talent recruited into the organization at considerable cost has left in just a few years.
