    Pros

    You can make a great income at Carl Zeiss once you learn the equipment and get a reputation in your area.

    Cons

    They change their commission compensation plan every year.... and you spend half the year trying to figure it out, and half the year pushing products that you normally wouldn't sell to a client so you can maximize your personal compensation in terms of commission.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management was very good for the most part. My first manager had been in the industry for 20+ years and was always fair and equitable with me. Gave me lots of opportunity, and seemed to be sensitive to personal matters that arose during my tenure at Zeiss.
