    Decent benefits and training to perform your job. Lots of different locations and opportunities for job navigation, if you have right connections.

    Pros

    The pay and benefits were great as well as my co-workers.

    Sales goals were, at times, unreasonable especially considering the acquisitions made in New England and Upper Mid-West made it near impossible to reach goals in a saturated market.

    Advice to Management

    Be a bit more understanding of employees and don't make goals unattainable.
