    Pros

    Commission structure is good. Benefits are decent as well.

    Cons

    Have a hard time understanding where all sales numbers come from. Everything is too convoluted and distribution is too wide. Does not make you want to stay here. It's not bad, but also not engaging.

    Advice to Management

    Tighten in up.

    If you can survive the harassment and the unethical behaviors of managers, there are good people in non-managerial roles.

    Pros

    Stability as long as business is good. When there is a down turn you never know who will be cut or when the cuts will stop.

    Cons

    The only way to get a job your interested in here is to come from somewhere else. The "promotions" you do get here are given with out your consent. The benefit package continues to have things taken away.

    Advice to Management

    Promote from within. Listen to what your employees want. There are other places to cut the budget then just your employees.
