Not bad, but not all that great, either.

Pros

Great benefits, ok salary, great job flexibility. You can manage your territory however you like. Lots of perks...car/gas/parking, computer, phone stipend each month.

Cons

Managers are, for the most park, very week and afraid to speak up. Extremely hard to move beyond the PSS phase into management. Lots of company politics. Check the box kind of job...being intelligent and wanting to engage customers can be seen negatively from a company that prefers you just deliver a message and grab a signature.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Learn about individual rep traits and strengths. Don't be afraid to speak up.

    Pros

    this was an interesting work environment but the goals were always changing. The people were great, very dedicated, and committed to making things work.

    Cons

    The direction of the company was never clear. There was a lot of change at the senior management level resulting in shifting policies and seemingly constant downsizing. Everything has a process or it doesn't exist.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There is a need to refocus and communicate the direction of the company.

    Current organizational change has turned everything upside down. Could be great opportunity for some; for others it's been a nightmare.
