    Pros

    Decent pay, company car, expense reimbursement, and annual bonus. Good sales experience and the title looks good on a resume. For the most part you are working on your own.

    Unprofessional working environment, poor opportunities for advancement, manual labor involved. Too many cliques and management plays favorites.

    Promote more fairly, give better and consistent feedback, don't play favorites.

    find something safe and useful to sell instead of contributing to over 400,000 deaths yearly,and stop spending millions to fight legal rulings that go against you

    Pros

    Benefits Package, vehicle, pay is competitive but beginning to become less competitive vs. the work and hours we put in.

    Cons

    Very political to advance within the company. Too many chiefs, not enough Indians. Same salary even though we bought 2 more companies and do their work too on top of our old existing jobs. No thanks from management or senior leadership. Upper management is afraid to challenge or disagree with senior managers and VPs+.

    Advice to Management

    Step in our shoes once in a while and see the hard work and dedication that gets done even with all the problems that come our way from our own leaders screw ups.

    Pros

    Stellar Benefits including 15% payment into DPS, Medical, Dental, & Vision benefits, education reimburesement without strings attached, 14 holidays and 15 vacations after first 6 months, and standard salary

    Cons

    Work-life balance is non-existent and at times makes it look like you are working for nothing. The advancement process is worse than reality television. The company used to care about people and know only cares about meeting Wall Street's expectations. HQ never has a plan finalized when it is presented to the sales force - it's changed 3 times before it actually starts and then again before it's over. And if you ever want to manage people and make 6-figures, be prepared to move at least 4 times.

    Advice to Management

    If you truly want leaders, create an environment to build them, not overwork them out of the company. Also, make sure any plans you have, test them with a few smart people and get some feedback before you frustrate all 1800 sales people.
