Great earning potential but management is not always supportive to field sales

Pros

Strong brand and large earning potential if you meet your sales numbers. Ability to work from home and travel into a specific sales territory. Travel perks are excellent!

Cons

Many of the "mentors" are just trying to receive a high rating in Leadership to ensure their maximum bonus and do not embody the true essence of helping colleagues. As a field sales person you are often left out on your own and do not have the support of experienced Director.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Promote competent Directors and not just those with top selling records - often times the ability to be a "top producer" does not translate into a "great Director".

    An okay place for average performers; communication skills are valued more than analytical skills in most functions
