    Cons

    Money isn't there if you aren't selling

    Getting all the licenses
    Sometimes you will run into license conflicts/

    Advice to Management

    Restructure compensation to salary and be stricter in regards to hiring interns. We don't need a high turnover rate for employees... We need to get people and keep them with the company, most interns now are using the experience as a stepping stone which is a huge cost to the company.
