    Pros

    Used to be an excellent work environment, team building, managers interested in your career.

    Cons

    Inadequate training. Current focus is on text book type recurrent training instead of hands on. Senior and Regional management too far removed from the sales floor to see what works effectively. Definite double standards between management and sales.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get out on the floor and sell occasionally, it is the only way to see for yourself what actually works.
