I have been working at G & K Management Services full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Commission-based jobs are generally sales jobs. The money can be significantly higher than for a salaried job requiring the same level of education, experience and training. The more you sell, the more you make. You can, if you have a talent for sales, give yourself a pay bump simply by working harder. How much you take home is largely up to you. As a commission-based worker, you generally don’t face a lot of employer hassles about your work style, so long as you’re generating profits for the company. If you make record sales while wearing a clown nose and knee britches, the boss is not likely to complain much.

Cons

You don’t get paid if you don’t produce. You may have nothing to worry about if you are one of those congenital I-love-the-smell-of-order-sheets-in-the-morning kind of people. If you don’t love selling things, however, commissioned-based work can be a soul-destroying ordeal with relatively few financial rewards. Benefits may or may not be included. Vacation time may be treated like a week without pay. If you are new to a commission-based job, it can adversely affect your ability to get credit. If you aren’t successful, your boss may let you hang on till you give up and quit, so you won’t be eligible for unemployment. To succeed at commission-based work, you have to produce constantly. You cannot coast.

Advice to Management

If you don't like sales, it's not likely that a commissioned job working for someone else will do more than give you ulcers. Selling is a gift. Not everyone has it. God bless those who do. Their energy drives our economy as much as almost anything else. If you look at the desk in front of you, you will not see a single item resting there that was not sold by someone to someone else.

    I worked at G & K Management Services (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I was able to understand the GAAP (US) taxation principles,
    I gained knowledge of the softwares that they were dealing with like QuickBooks Solutions, Creative Solutions Accounting. I mainly worked on these two applications.

    Cons

    The payscale was too low.
    Overtime was more.
    The company followed a time rate system i.e. to complete a client file within a time frame that adds to our payments.
