    Pros

    Talented group of sales reps that truly believe in providing support to educators. When you make your sales quota you can greatly benefit financially.

    Cons

    Constant change in upper management and restructuring. Technology needs to be updated as do supplemental materials. Very hard to compete while little is being invested in new materials. Management is not always honest. They say what they think you want them to hear.

    Advice to Management

    We all knew when the company filed for Chapter 13 it was going to be difficult to maintain the sales force as it was but for 10 months we were constantly told there would be no work reduction. In the end there was a total restructuring and loss of employment for 100's.
