    Pros

    Lots of freedoms with the way employees choose to do their jobs. Not stuck inside an office all day.

    Cons

    Very little compensation for wear and tear on personal vehicles, which are used in daily work. Many managers are totally clueless or do not care about employees. Upper management clearly does not care about those working at the entry level.

    Advice to Management

    Check up on lower management more frequently. Open your eyes.

    Poorly managed at all levels. Not a team atmosphere.

    Pros

    A fun industry, selling fun products. A good choice if you are self motivated and don't like the 8:00-5:00 gig

    Cons

    Lots of pressure from big suppliers to make the sales numbers and they don't care how you make them or if the products fit the account. Unorganized Management - the left hand does not know what the right hand is doing.

    Advice to Management

    Every Sales Rep hates their job and would quit tomorrow. You have a PR problem in the industry and in the Company.
