Amazing people, a good company, decent pay

Field Sales Representative (Former Employee) Los Angeles, CA

Pros-The people you work with will be some of the nicest most pleasant people around.
-The benefits are good - healthcare from day one (that will also pay for fertility treatments), full pay during family medical leave, if traveling you get to keep all your points and miles
-can say no to weekend work and excessive work

Cons-if you don't say no, you can end up with an endless amount of work that is not humanly possible to finish
-there are other places you can be paid better
-promotions can be political at higher levels

Advice to Senior Management-stop mixing it up and changing job titles, descriptions and work structures every year - essentially the same job gets done every year, only at every NSM we find out that we have a new title or belong to a new manager or a new group name - it seems like a waste of time to reorganize all the time
-realize when your reports are close to burn out - working nearly 80 hours a week in the field with travel is exhausting. Stand up for your team and tell them to take some time off.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
