    Pros

    -It's great company that does everything it can to provide best in class service to it's customers. -Manageable territory size - Company Car - Good Salary - Great Training

    Cons

    Obviously, customers aren't going to call you to tell you how great you're doing. Once you bring the amount of business targeted you turn into a high paid customer service rep.
