    Pros

    Amazing colleagues who will go above and beyond for you. Good benefits and amazing sales and resource training.

    Cons

    Horrible work life balance. Unrealistic expectations.

    Advice to Management

    Focus more on the positive. Build your sales people up. Make their day to day more fun. Everyone knows what is expected of them. Make them feel like they are not under a microscope and instead ask them how you can help.

    Excellent work life balance. Upper management completely transparent. It’s a blessing to be in this company. Company growing and going in the right direction.

    Keep doing what you are doing.
