      Pros

      So so products. Not many pros.

      Cons

      You are just a number. You are as good as your last sale. It's a revolving door. If you produce sales, you are the golden child, but beware, in order to produce sales, this is a 16+ hours per day job! They have unattainable quotas with unrealistically goals! No opportunity for career advancement

      Looking for something else

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      When you hit goal you make money

      Cons

      Aggressive, high turnover, must hit 85% of goal or higher to keep your job. They give you 6 months when you’re first hired as a ramp, until you are put on performance improvement plan and then eventually let go. No support. You are on your own. No mentorships. Lots of Egos here. Figure it out on your own. Essentially Sink or Swim - no one is handing you a life vest - you gotta figure it out.

      Commission plan is the only plus to this company
