    Pros

    Salary level ..but you paid for it !

    Cons

    Senior management were unrelenting -constant pressure with NO clue about field sales! Demoralizing, rude and hypocritical by never applying what they say to what THEY do.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat your mid level management with the same respect you want in return. Stop hiding out behind your desks and offer support in the field in order to understand the current market trends.
