Pros

Flexible schedule- a glorified independent contractor position although they get around this by doing your taxes

Cons

This company wants you to build a territory on your dime, can take away your accounts for no reason, if the customer doesn't pay their bill, you are responsible for the lion share of the bill, they
give you an unqulified person to act as your boss , no flexibility in pricing ( try to sell at one tiered pricing, if you quit, no big deal, you just built a territory for the established reps ..............very shady..........run away from this company

Advice to Management

Your taking advantage of a bad job market to pad your pockets .........shameful

    Pros

    great products, flexibility, training opportunities, management support

    Cons

    Evasiveness during the interview as to turnover rate. Unrealistic goals. Starting a territory from nothing with no experience. No assigned territory, so I was competing for customers with a regional manager in the same area, wasting time and my gas. Expenses not covered. Training is good, but limited. You memorize and recite a script, perform demonstrations and are expected to close two sales/day.

    Advice to Management

    A real personality test, like Meyers-Briggs or Caliper would cut down on the turnover rate. You can do a great presentation and a great demo, but if you don't have an aggressive personality, you won't make it.

    Get back to the two customer focus!
