    Pros

    The competitive retail environment is invigorating if your into competition and beating out your peers. The opportunity to meet interesting clients and grow long lasting relationships benefits the most.

    Cons

    Management is sometimes a pain, as in their motive behind certain changes the company takes, a particular example is the recent pricing assistance. Furthermore compensation is unbalanced, as commission is based off growth and multiple factors that sometimes are quite hard to change but are counterproductive when focusing on growth.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Adjust pay and return the freedom that employees had originally in making the correct financial decisions without penalizing them for growing their sales.
