    Pros

    Privately held, more stable and less lay offs than our competition. Pay better than most. Wonderful people, who have been with the company for many years. Great training. The employees really learn how to sell versus the competition who sell just by price.

    Cons

    Micro managed, ridiculous amount of focus lines at once, line card is not as broad as competition. Employees are overworked and over stressed. Corporate management is disconnected. No room for advancement in the field.

    Advice to Management

    The office atmosphere is negative and toxic, office politics are allowed to run rampant. A positive working environment is a must and this is a direct result of management.
