    Advice to management would be that they need to stop lying to customers and be true to their words and stop making employees do the dirty work for them.

    Pros

    Employees are amazing from all walks of life.

    Cons

    Changing commission which only benefits the company every year. The higher executives spend the money and then cut back on the front line to make up for it. I do the job of 4 people. 300% and 65 hrs work week. No work life balance.

    Advice to Management

    Wake up to what you are doing. You are going to lose your top employees
