    Pros

    Well structured roles, great atmosphere if you like technology, great management team.

    Cons

    Pressure to sell add-ons, some senior employees pretty much slacked all day and only did 1 hour of work on their 8 hour shift.

    Advice to Management

    If you are going to pressure employees to sell, give them more incentive, that will solve a lot of problems.
