    Pros

    Great fit, and very little micromanaging takes place. You must be very self motivated and self reliant. There are a ton of resources here, but you have to ask for help if you need it. They are very big on knowledge transfer here. I have vets ask me for my opinion almost as often as I ask for theirs. The money is there if you can master the multi-tasking required to balance a large work load. The commission is not immediately available but they do offer plenty of bonus opportunity for your first 18 months to help get you through to that draw.

    Cons

    They could be more clear on a few things here. It is pretty common to find someone that doesn't completely understand how they get paid. It likely has a bit to do with the fact that this is a first time job for many recent grads. But it also has a bit to do with there not being much emphasis in training or hiring on explaining the draw and how to earn commission. Again, if you want to know something, you need to ask.

    Advice to Management

    Keep finding new and exciting ways to motivate your reps, and helping them to grow.

    Pros

    Flexible hours, good Management Team, good Company to work for.

    Cons

    Negative comments would be simply the nature of the job, not the Company -claims are generally a negative, stressful environment in general since you are dealing with something that 'went wrong'. The work load can be somewhat unmanageable at times.
