    Pros

    -Fun paid training in Washington D.C.
    -Not stuck behind a desk

    Cons

    -Management only cares about "getting the shot," regardless of any difficulties you might encounter while on location; i.e. angry property owners, personal safety issues (I once had someone try multiple entry points to break onto my vehicle with me in it).
    -You're alone all day every day; that might be a pro to some people, but it wears on me.
    -Pay is not really very high for the amount of work done and what is expected of you.
    -Commission schedule does not take into account the region of individual researchers; not everyone works/lives in densely populated areas.

    Advice to Management

    Be more open to constructive criticism and advice for change.

    Pros

    Location, office design, free snacks..

    Cons

    Micromanagement, impossible metrics, unrealistic goals changing ever 5 minutes, shady practices, backstabbing inexperienced managers (most not all).. being great at your job is not enough for these people you've gotta be willing to kiss a lot of **** to succeed..

    Advice to Management

    Stop promoting inexperienced children to managerial position--if you must, at least put standardized practices in place to hedge against their stupidity. Make training more rigorous by requiring researchers to read a book or two on CRE and test them on the info.. that will significantly improve the quality of your data..
