    Pros

    Money--> but money isn't everything

    Cons

    I feel like you can never tell anyone how you really feel, for constant fear that you may get fired of that they would think of a way to fire you.

    Bad health... always being in the field turns you to 3am breakfast burritos, sodas and bags of chips. Some weeks I worked 90 hours for 3 weeks in a row. I barely had time to sleep or do anything. I was like a zombie, and so tired. I got in trouble once for closing my eyes and relaxing because I was sooo tired.

    If you want money and are desperate then maybe this is the place for you, but you will quickly realize that money is not everything.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please taken into account people's lives more. The company focuses too much on money and money, and then there is nothing else to focus on. People have families and friends, and have hobbies.
