    Pros

    Good reputation. Quality before quantity. Only negative is a too many micro-management tasks involved.

    Cons

    To many metrics distracts from focusing attention where its really needed, Can be too overwhelming at times. Very hard when you start. Depending on the position terrible commission structure.

    Advice to Management

    Let sales employee's have more responsibility. Insist on a minimum vacation policy. Follow procedures to make a true and real work/life balance work place.
