    Pros

    Interesting work. You get to learn a lot from the management, and they are constantly pushing you to sell more plans.

    Cons

    Constant push to sell can be a lot of pressure but it's a sales position to I think that's something you have to expect from that.
    Pay wasn't that great for the amount of work done.
