Pros

People are supportive and generally nice

Cons

Zero training for most positions, huge turnover this year. Company is disorganized and internal resources are weak and slow. Pay is low for sales reps so they are constantly leaving.

Advice to Management

Hold internal resources responsible for their performance in the same way you hold sales people responsible. Internal errors cost salespeople money.
