    Pros

    Hours of Operation, Time off for holidays and personal days, Work environment is great,

    Cons

    Hard core sales, training program that is ok but throws you out there, any time that you miss from work is a day that you are not making sales calls that effects your numbers, SALES CALLS, product pushing

    Advice to Management

    calling it a needs based conversation does not take away from the sales. If it really was all about the customer then sales goals would not be so high or PE for each product would be higher and Checking account would not be so hard to keep PE. Instead of your employees being worried about customers needs they are worried about hitting sales goals and doing anything they can to get it so they don't loss their jobs.
