    Pros

    Work your own schedule. You drive a new company car with a gas card and insurance. You are given assigned territories. Fantastic company.

    Cons

    There was too much management turnover, but that is the only negative I encountered.

    Advice to Management

    I guess give the manager a better incentive to stay in their role.
