    Pros

    Decent place to work if you are strong seller. Very much sales driven, efforts don't count. If you have a good manager you have opportunity to learn a lot of different skills if they allow you to. A lot of training but unfortunately operations has a lot of variance from branch to branch and many branches make exceptions for clients without informing them. This leads to misperception on client's part that other branch is singling them out.

    Cons

    No one shares things that are available to you for your professional growth. Company allows $5000 per year per employee for their professional training and career development if they want to do something different but I learned this after being with the company for more than 6 yrs as I made the decision to leave the company.

    A lot clicks within the organization. You have to know someone to pull in a favor for you to get a position even if you are not the best candidate. Qualified candidates are overlooked because management does not want to let a strong seller out of their area and this limits the person's growth and eventually they leave (as I did).

    Advice to Management

    Have a consistent message and keep everyone informed. If you expect that teammates should have a best friend at work then don't penalize them because that best friend is in the same branch as them or is someone about the regional manager and holds a strong authority.
