    Pros

    The company was filled with quality people that made it a fun place to work. Salary and benefits were top of the line.

    Cons

    I sometimes did not understand the direction that the company was taking when introducing new products. That made it challenging to get them into the marketplace.

    Advice to Management

    They needed to get more feedback from the field sales force prior to coming out with new products and promotions.
