Pros

The atmosphere in the branches were relaxed, though were a significant stress to produce, you could leave work at work. In general, it was a collegial environment with coworkers, which means that a colleague was willing to help.

Cons

There was too many things that corporate required that turned into busy work, essentially just 'checing a box', but no real value behind the activity. Company held employees to aggresively selling product that sales force found questionable.

Advice to Management

1. Comp Plan (don't always try to ask for sales force to sell more and pay them less year after year. 2. Focus on the activities that lead to actual production and lessen 'busy work' work load.
