    I have been working at Connells full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Great Team in Thame Very Professional Great Competitiveness

    Cons

    Minimal Commission from Sales from as low as 3% of company’s fee Long hours (however this is part of the job and not really a con if you can hack it)

    Advice to Management

    Increase commission, especially you are making the company good money and reward good salesmanship at all levels.
