Pros

Great Training for new reps as well as personal mentoring
Great pay if you actually makes sales
Plethora of leadership opportunities

Cons

Full-commission (not for the immature)
Fell lost sometime in that there is a lot to learn in so little time if you want to make real money
Pay schedule can be a bit confusing

Advice to Management

Keep up the great work! In the training class, make sure to give more information into how reps actually get paid and be more clear of cutoff dates

    Pros

    The sky is the limit if you are dedicated and work hard. I have never worked anywhere before that there wasn't any sort of cap on your earning and that your compensation is a direct reflection of how hard you work. I have been able to build my own "small business" and look forward to the next 30 years here!

    Cons

    Not everyone ends up making it because they don't work smart enough.
