I worked at Southwestern Advantage

Pros

-Best sales training for college students, anywhere, period
-Incentive trips
-Unmatched culture of ambition
-Sales School has been free for the last 4 years, for the 150 (150) years before that, you had to pay for your on materials
-Resume that can get you a job anywhere you apply; skills to exemplify that resume

Cons

-District Sales Managers as a group are a strange social club where women don't last long and some bad apples turn away future leaders
-Org Leaders receive no benefits from many additional responsibilities and added expenses

Advice to ManagementAdvice

DSM's - give your dead level best effort to be more like Dan Moore.

    Pros

    the potential to earn a lot of money really fast is probably the best reason
    management positions later in your career

    Cons

    there is a lot of controversy as far as how the company has treated its "employees" whom are independent contractors

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    they have been doing this for a long time, so i trust they know what they are doing. but they need to be more open
