    Fast paced environment, challenging, rewarding when you get things done, autonomy to achieve and thrive if a self starter. Recognises talent and hard work regardless of what role you do.

    Cons

    Can be a bit slow to get wider cultural change in the business, typical large organisation issues with communications and silos

    Carry on treating me this way and I'll carry on promoting your products.

    Pros

    Potential to earn good money if you are any good at selling, pick your work times -

    Cons

    Some damn awful appointments - Filtering of leads isn't great.

    The necessity to work weekends to secure decent leads can get a bit wearing

    Advice to Management

    Brush up on your follow up service to customers - A handful of disgruntled folk make a lot of noise.
