    Pros

    You get to be trained with some of the best devices and see them first hand. Interact with all types of customers.

    Cons

    We were promised new devices every 6 months, that was never delivered. We were promised promotional opportunities but there was no real way to track progress in store due to no supervisors being in store at all times. We were left unable to answer questions about new products due to them not releasing them to us until they were released to the public.

    Pros

    Team meetings over lunch and after work over drinks almost every week. Good on site physical security and plenty of parking.

    Cons

    Many people a hung over on Mondays and it's hard to breeze in no windows office space. If you are outside main culture you are a foreigner and treated as such.

    Pros

    Very professional environment. Employees become life long associates, business partners and friends.

    Cons

    This company tends to give you more work as you stay on board, but no compensation for moving up the corporate ladder.

    Advice to Management

    The mentality of "you're just lucky to have a job", really needs to change.
