Pros

Overall a solid employer that assisted myself in building valuable sales skills. A lot of these skills were learned on my own.
Benefits and retirement savings were competitive.
Developed myself into a well respected member in my field.

Cons

Too many levels of management that delayed receiving a decision to a problem a huge challenge.
Many managers chose to micro-manage their outside sales force.
Very little, if any, career advancement opportunities.

Advice to Management

Be more open to your sales force. Offer them more information on the direction that upper management wants to take.
