    Pros

    stable, pay is reasonable, bonus is OK, 401K is OK. If you want to become a nameless, faceless cog in a huge machine, and not have to work too hard, this might be the place for you. Seriously, this is not a dis.... You can hide here and if you have a minimal intelligence, you can do fine.... but it is a big corporation, and you will have to deal with big corporation attitudes to get anywhere...

    Cons

    Company does not have a focused technology vision. IT resources are just that - resources - interchangeable, and have not much value other than the ability to do the coding necessary.

    Advice to Management

    Please train your business analysts to do business analysis, and not just copy and paste the business requirements into the Quick-Start form..... If you want good software, you either need to let the developers talk to the end user/customer or you need good specs...

    Pros

    Can make good money and have a long career, but must fit in with the norm of the company. Ability to scheduling your own days/weeks and run your territory the way you'd like.

    Cons

    A very gossip-filled company. Make sure you stay on the right side of the wrong people, it is very cliquey. Your time will be bogged down with menial busy work. You must be willing to do your distributors jobs for them or else you won't have success.

    Advice to Management

    Too much micromanaging. Also, stop dumping all the busy work on the territory managers and let us sell.

    Pros

    The people you can work with.

    Cons

    Management favoritism, lack of communication between managers, hours, shifts, options and upward movement is purely favorites based, not performance wise. Poor business decisions constantly affect your personal life.

    Advice to Management

    Stick to promises.
