    Pros

    Salary, benefits are generous. Leadership is admirable. I've worked at a few large companies

    Cons

    The only thing I can think of is that there seems to be a constant assessment of job positions and value. This can be looked at as a good thing too.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing!!!

    Pros

    Great Benefits:
    - Company car and iPhone for outside sales reps, gas included
    - Good compensation, uncapped commission
    - Profit sharing
    - medical/dental coverage
    - 2-3 weeks vacation/yr
    - Training is outstanding - Company spends millions/yr on high performance selling
    Advancement opportunity:
    - Promote from within
    - Ability to change career paths within; moving from one department to another
    Management:
    - Listens to employees and makes adjustments accordingly
    - Good talent, young but qualified
    Good workplace environment

    Cons

    Company treats you well so the expectation is that you work for it, not really a con but found myself working long hours
    -Sales: company cars were monitored via telematics - manager has ability to see start/stop times, how long you are with a customer, GPS coordinates - again not really a con as long as you are doing what you are suppose to
    - Sales - be ready to deal with pricing objections - not the cheapest guys in town and not afraid to admit it - selling overall value

    Advice to Management

    Re-evaluate pricing structure!
    Competition is catching up to the services offered while keeping their prices reasonable. This is the biggest complaint by customers and internally as sellers.
