    Pros

    the President is a great motivator and genuinely cares about what he does. The environment is positive.

    Cons

    The company is being sold to the major competitor, so it is hard to tell what it could have been like without this transition.

    Pros

    The annual $5 Sonic birthday gift cards. 7 years ago the job was decent, however management decided a change was needed.

    Cons

    Too many daily operating procedures. The work day is spent having to input every step I take into Salesforce.com, and not enough time to sell the products.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Good Luck
