    Pros

    Opportunity to generate excellent salary based on commission and bonuses.

    Good benefits and excellent coworkers. Opportunity to grow is great.

    Cons

    Micromanagement. Mid management has virtually no power to truly assist reps. Gosls and mission of company change with the wind.

    Advice to Management

    Let employees on the sales floor work more freely with greater flexibility. Give senior reps more say. Don't treat a new sales rep like you would a veteran
