    Good experience

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Nationwide company, company car, learned alot about large organizations. During my time I was able to rehash alot of old leads across the country and go into channel partner stores choose my own customers to spend time on. Never had trouble meeting quota and in-house financing and leasing made it super easy to close deals. Best if area is a newer suburban area with most homes built after 1960.

    Cons

    Huge disconnect being a large organization between what is going on at the warehouse level and what the VPs or even districts understand about an area. Old housing stock in LA that left at least 50% of sales being disqualified after site audit. Upper management refused to see that as the issue and blamed reps and managers etc. Doubled down on terrible decisions. Had to leave.
