    Pros

    Competitive salary/commission/benefits with achievable goals. Excellent coaching and supportive team environment. Easy to follow playbook makes success a possibility for anyone willing to put in the effort and hard work. Endless opportunities for growth within a stable corporate structure.

    Cons

    If you are looking for a quiet desk job, you won't find it here. I guarantee this is the hardest you will ever work. In my opinion, it's absolutely worth it. If you only plan on bringing 100% to the table, perhaps this isn't for you.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work! The leadership and coaching is by far superior to any environment I have experienced.

    Advice to Management

    Award your top people more in all areas. It is a big company. Do not forget the ones that are loyal and have supported the company for a long time.. A life time achievement award would be nice.. :)

    The furloughs were tough in the beginning. But I actually learned to like them. The furloughs doubled my vacation time and gave me 9 day holiday periods.
