Pros

Good pay structure if you know how to sell
Great Benefits
Top performers receive a high level of autonomy

Cons

Management has zero direction
products are stale and boring - banner ads is 1995…not digital marketing in 2013
Rah-rah management for outside sales, but true internal favoritism is toward the inside sales team

Advice to Management

Better Products, better territory distribution, realistic sales expectations
