    Pros

    Great people! Ability to make commission. Consistent hours. Work/life
    Balance.

    Cons

    Commission is
    Capped although they say it isn't! New commission plan makes the company money, however, has left employees borrowing from 401K and selling stock although commission was ONLY supposed to be "cost neutral."

    Advice to Management

    Start over!
