    Pros

    Huge increase in commission from amount of deals sold.

    Every medical provider we have used loves our benefits and say its the best benefits they have seen so benefits rock!

    In our Regional Sales Conference in Austin our CEO Tim told us his vision is to see the sales team the highest paid sale team and yes the company has made actions with commission changes and focus on rewarding revenue instead of quantity of deals sold are showing the truth of his commitment to employees!

    I heard HR was going through 2,000 to 4,000 applicants per employee hired so opportunity to shine.

    Best upper management in the northern west! They listen, help you succeed, push you, rewarded by your performance. Work force a blast to work with.

    You will know more about a city, meet the best people and eat and experience things you never knew existed - Best time social year of my life and I'm 38! yes I didn't know of all these coolest things in Utah!

    Cons

    Growth pains, about 200 employees in Jan 2010 currently over 5000 so working on Employee's, Accounts, then Profit. Good thing is that they are now Employee Focused in turn we take care of merchants and that will bring in the profits.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep the employees you hire by continuing to focus on the highest sales force in America

    Pros

    Quality of Life, Listen to their employees, when something doesn't work-they ALWAYS fix it, great branding, great pay, I love my job!

    Cons

    Sometimes I can get easily distracted working from home..sometimes there is turnover because it is an intense job. You have to work hard!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Could be better about the regional sales manager's activities with the reps. If you work from home, remotely, and if your management is a bad experience..it can ruin the job for you because thats all you know!
