    Pros

    You can sell something fun as opposed to something everyone needs. Every now and then you'll meet some people you really enjoy working with (clients and co-workers). You will get some good experience.

    Cons

    Senior Management tends to manage with a "Big brother is watching," type of attitude. Spending too much time worrying about little details that do not matter in the swing of things. They are constantly micromanaging by sending a constant stream of emails, mile long to-do lists, and they're always checking up on you. Half of the week is spent putting together and sending reports to them. How is one to sell when we're filling out pointless reports?

    Advice to Management

    Have a little faith and trust your employees. You hired them, so you should trust that they will do a good job. It's okay to check in and look at the big picture, but stop micromanaging. It is making many employees angry and pushing them away from the company.
