    Pros

    Reputable company for future employment due to the Berkshire Hathaway umbrella, BUT THAT'S ABOUT ALL

    Cons

    Expected to warp into a 24/7 robot, no balance between work and personal life, extremely high risk of divorce, mental instability and detrimental physical health conditions (i.e. ulcer, heart attack, death, etc.)

    Advice to Management

    Get a life. Learn your job and stop pretending to know what you're doing when you have no clue. Stop kissing the #!* of the management above you and treat your salesforce like adults, not children. After all, you're not paying them like anyone in their right mind should be payed with all the BS expected.

    Pros

    Great introduction to the industry, you will meet some of your friends for life here. It can be fun with the right manager who can motivate you. The amount of event and tradeshows are great and Cort is involved in many affiliations to get to clients. It is not hard too succeed,,with that being said, now for the cons,

    Cons

    Now doubling the amount of task and unreallistic expectations for time to enter salesforce entries and client visits. The commission salary has decreased for the worse in the past 5 years, so no "real" rewards for your achievements. Hard to advance in position and no local intranet to let anyone know about other positions available in the company. Below in salary offerings even for the entry level up to senior level persons unless you were from previous aquisition or hired from competitor.

    Advice to Management

    My advice is to upper Management level; I would reconsider your expectations of requirements, meaning to lower them since the pay does not match the task required, or maybe you could pay people what they are worth and they would be happier for being rewarded (by real commissions)and motivated to do above and beyond rather then a $300 commission for being 160% to plan.
