    Really great management, nice people that genuinely want you to succeed. Great product/services, benefits, and facility.

    The services they provide are suited for enterprise level clientele, not for mid market or small business. If you're a sales rep with one of those markets its going to be hard to compete from a pricing stand point.Internal systems are a mess.
