    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    Good work environment and rewarding work when you find employment for military veterans. Commission potential is significant and the business model is conducive to monthly commission income. San Diego branch is well managed and candidate quality is good due to reputation. Graduating sales commissions keep you motivated and performance (in terms of $$) is always recognized. Constant investment in training and education.

    Cons

    The Account Executive work is largely monotonous cold calling and there is pressure to constantly generate new business. Competition is fierce even within the office and with competitors in an industry that has very little barrier to entry. Turnover is relatively high (approximately 1 year) and the business is very susceptible to economic down turns. Owned by a capital firm so there is constant pressure to increase sales and reduce operating costs.
