    Pros

    The hours and paid holidays are nice. Benefits are good. Nice co-workers.

    Cons

    Territories and projects are not fairly divided or distributed. When you start to make commission, they will find a reason to take it away. They make you take vacation days when you are sick. Sometimes you don't know your sales goals until the very end of the month. Supervisors talk loudly amongst themselves all day, very loudly which is very distracting.

    Advice to Management

    Management classes would be helpful.
