Approves of CEO

Pros

Job is commission only, so the earning potential is there but its a tough environment right now. There are alot of benefits for working with a private company and the culture is great.

Cons

Tough goals after a year or two. With economy in slump it is hard to make enough sales to meet current goals.

Advice to Management

Management is fair in most cases. It is a very close relationship between very successful long standing emplyees and even the newest employee which is nice.
