Pros

Sales positions are work from home. You get to work with all kinds of businesses.

Cons

Management from the top down is a joke. Your manager won't be in touch at all until they need something from you. Really high turn over, bad comp plan.

Advice to Management

Need to consider new Management from the top down. Jennifer Terrell is the president (also the star of a trashy reality tv show, real house wives of nashville) Maybe more planning meetings & less filming sessions.

    Pros

    People understand what you are selling, you will get meetings with businesses, co-workers are great, great insurance

    Cons

    Unrealistic sales quotas, managers are not required to help you succeed, burn thru sales people

    Advice to Management

    Slow the growth, stop being so greedy, sales people built the business and you treat them the worst

    Pros

    Fun perks, benefits to working in market, flexible-make your own hours. In early days it was an exciting product that people wanted to talk about. Maybe they'll find money in a new product?

    Cons

    Company is grasping for straws. Earnings potential is there, but org is always trying to figure out how to properly do business- so goals are always changing. Operations struggle to work alongside outside reps.

    Advice to Management

    Keep on doing what you're doing...looking for other jobs.
