    Pros

    Around amazing people all the time. Very intense work ethic, and you're at the center of the universe. Amazing sense of importance with the work you're doing.

    Cons

    Disproportionately older generations overall, but this isn't really a huge issue, could even make it more worthwhile

    Advice to Management

    Absolutely amazing time

    Pros

    The job was varied because of the client base and large number of products we offered. We worked with cross-functional teams to create dynamic ideas for our clients and that was fun. Plus the clients themselves were terrific.

    Cons

    I worked for a fearful field office that was lead by a person who screened phone calls. No one asked nor cared that a rep in a field office would want a career path. Strange company, We were required to let the office know when we were walking down the hall to use the restroom.

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention your field folks and treat the well.
