    Pros

    Pretty good pay for employees

    Cons

    People fighting over sales and clients

    Advice to Management

    Management was good. You would just expect adults to act accordingly with or without management. So I won't blame managers for that. But, communication and listening to your employees as we listen to you is a start for a good manager/employee relationship.
