I worked at First Data full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Very Flexible work hours--you create your own hours and scheduled appointments. Potential to make a lot of money once you have built a Book of Business. Many different products to sell and make money with.

Cons

Most of the very successful reps do not disclose fees properly. Industry is full of shady people so it leads reps at First Data resorting to those same tactics. Too much competition. Competition lies and says whatever they need to get the business. Pricing is initially conrolled by the sales rep but can go up by the company later on.

Advice to Management

Managers have way too much on their plate to be effective at developing their team of sales reps. Anyime you go out in the field with a Manager, they are inindated with phone calls from other reps and/or other issues. Managers need to spend more time developing team members.

    Pros

    no pros - absolutely none.

    Cons

    oh where to start: many cons - some to know are: work schedule expectation while flexible is code for "60 hour weeks". Management is just horrible - no positive feedback - ever.

    Fire yourselves!!! and be realistice regarding your talents: not one of you have any talent for management and especially, i dont believe *any of you* should be in IT management
