    Pros

    The job can be a lot of fun particularly when business is booming. You are helping customers, selling great products, and making some money.

    Cons

    There can be large fluctuations in income that are beyond the control of the individual. When the market slows down, you will be working extra hard to make very little in return.

    Advice to Management

    Create avenues for earnings advancement to those that are not Thunderbirds or hired in Europe.
