    Pros

    Great Flexibility with schedule and great benefits.

    Cons

    PRESSURE! STRESS! PRESSURE! Takes about a year to start to really understand the business. The pay is very average. I have been at FDMS for about 1.5 years and the pay does not match the stress they put on you. The base salary is low and it takes 3 years to make a decent income.

    Advice to Management

    Stop pushing AE's to lease out of date equipment with a 48 month term. The market has changed and if we do a good enough job why do we want to lock them in?

    Pros

    Flexibility, Work from home (somewhat), good benefits package, decent pay, and the ability to make some good money if you work hard and get the right banks.

    Cons

    Lots of driving, lots of angry people, HUGE learning curve if you havent been in the industry. Managers are too busy to really help a newbie, technology (Ipads) and programs we use tend to not work when you really need them too.

    Advice to Management

    We need lots more of you, get assistants!
