    Pros

    Very hard to find anything good to say here... Staff is very nice and benefits are okay. Some managers care about whether or not you succeed. There are several good products to sell, however you're not really ever trained on any of them.

    Cons

    Very little training... managers tend to just toss you in without helping much. There's very little respect for your time. Too many last minute meetings that tend to be a waste of time. Your job is threatened daily which makes it very hard to focus and stay positive. There's a lot of empty promises from managers. They tend to move accounts around a lot which makes clients very upset because they never know who their rep is and reps never know who they're supposed to be calling on.

    Advice to Management

    A structured training program would help but that would just be a band-aid. The office wouldn't be such a revolving door if managers cared more and kept promises. It's very obvious that managers do not care about any of their reps.
