    Collaborative work place with nice people and an opportunity to learn a lot of new skills either for current position or next role.

    Work load is crazy and often leads to burn out. There are so many changes to keep up with, including personnel. And this only contributes to an even heavier work loads.

    Pros

    Great company culture. Management encourages creative thinking.

    Cons

    It's difficult to see the required number of accounts with traffic getting worse over time in the larger cities. I felt as though I was running from place to place and not getting enough time to plan for my daily activities. It's hard to focus on "what to say" or "how to say it" when you're constantly running and behind schedule.

    Advice to Management

    None, they have no control over traffic. Perhaps invest in self driving cars.

    Professional environment with intelligent and friendly employees.

    Cons

    There is a significant amount of transition and change always taking place so it contributes to a significant of employee turnover. It's discouraging to see so many colleagues come and go over time. The software programs are pretty outdated.
